How to take body measurements for a perfect fit

Bust: Measure the fullest part of the bust. When putting the tape around your chest, make sure it is at the same level at the back as it is on the front. 

Waist: Tie a piece of string around your midriff to find your natural waistline (it tends to be higher than you think). Without holding in your breath or tightening your core, pass the tape around the where the string settles to find your waist measurement.

Hips: This measurement is usually about 22cm lower from where the waist was made. Make sure you measure the fullest part of your hips/bottom, keeping the tape measure parallel to the floor.

Leg Lengths: Our ladies’ trousers are designed to fit a regular 31” inside leg measurement. Skirt and dress lengths vary depending on design. Most of the Classic shift dress styles are 61cm from the waist, which on an average height finishes just below the knee, whereas the fuller dresses tend to be 15cm longer, or approximately 76cm from the waist.

Considerations: Always take your own personal measurements and cross-reference them with our size chart.

Our garments have, on the whole, a close tailored fit, with between 4cm to 5cm ‘free’ fabric for ease of movement and breathing.

If you would like to discuss sizing on particular styles, please feel free to call or email for advice before purchasing.

We recommend that with straight-fitted dresses you should purchase the size that corresponds with your largest measurement, ie:- if you have a large bust and small hips, buy the size for the for your bust measurement, and vice versa.

We do offer an alteration service in store, so if you are able to come by Pall Mall for a fitting at a time convenient to you, please call to arrange an appointment.

If you have a good tailor in your area, taking in side seams or raising a hem should be a task they could do for you without too much trouble.
