How do I know which size to buy?
We know that it's quite a challenge these days to find accurate labelling for sizes in many stores. A size 10 in one shop can be identical to a size 14 in another.
The important thing is that the garment fits, no matter what it says on the label (we won't tell if you won't!). Of course, everybody is unique, so when it comes to 'ready-to-wear' garments, there's always a slight compromise!
However, in supplying ladies outerwear to major High Street brands for many years, we have a reputation for comfortable, quality coats that fit in all the right places!
Buying online offers distinct advantages:
- To begin with, we don't have the overhead of operating multiple retail shop units, so we can pass savings on to you with a range of stylish yet affordable outerwear.
- Secondly, we know that many of our loyal customers are busy during traditional working hours, and so don't always have the opportunity to go shopping for a new coat, browsing rails, spending time in changing rooms and queuing up at tills. We provide zoom imagery and all the important details, so you can inspect each style easily, at home, on your smartphone or tablet while commuting or wherever you may be.
If in doubt, measuring a coat or jacket that fits you gives you the best indication or grab a metric and/or imperial tape measure (and if it helps, a trusted friend!):
- First, measure around the fullest part of your bust, keeping the tape parallel to the ground. This measurement determines your chest size.
- Wrap the tape around your natural waistline, making sure you keep the tape level: make a note of the measurement.
- Finally, wrap the tape around the fullest part of your hips, keeping the tape level and record the measurement.
Please note garment measurements will always be bigger than actual body measurements. Garments may vary in size specification depending on the style and ease allowance but will still fit the body size indicated.
There is no real International standard for women's clothing sizes but we can help you choose the right size with this handy measurement chart below:
