Despite having an eshop, I want to provide all of my customers with the custom fit service. Therefore there is no simple XS/S/M/L/XL/XXL sizing (except for stock products), but I want you to provide your measurements so that I can ensure the best possible fit of made to measure fashion. This is the next best option to visiting me, when I take those measurements myself. This tutorial provides you with basic information on how to take your own measurements.

What to measure?
Description of measurements
There is quite a few measurements I may need, but don’t be scared – for a particular dress I typically don’t need all of them and try to minimize measurements for you.
Please note you can store these measures in your personal profile and it will be automatically filled in from there into your orders (and yes, you can modify it there before adding the item to the cart.)
