HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT CLOTHING SIZE 

  1. Check the gender info to determine if the item is designed for women's or men's bodies or is unisex.
  2. Note the collection—European means standard EU sizes, and Asian means that the size runs small.
  3. Check for warning if the size is not standard, for example, 'runs small.'
  4. See the size comparison chart of the chosen item's brands vs. international size standards on our help page.

IN BETWEEN SIZES?

  • Choose the larger size if you are tall.
  • Choose a smaller size if you like a tight fit.
  • Choose a larger size if you usually wear L, XL, or larger sizes.
  • Choose a size based on the most critical measurement. For example, buy trousers by waist or dress by bust circumference.
  • Choose a size by your non-standard measure. For example, buy shorts by the hip circumference if your hips are rounder than standard.

LOOKING FOR THE PERFECT FIT?

  • Check fabric composition
  • Elastane or spandex composition means that the fabric has stretchiness.
  • 5% or more elastane means that the fabric is quite stretchy.
  • Check fabric elasticity level
  • Check fabric properties
  • Knitted fabrics are always very stretchy
  • Woven fabric can be slightly or non-stretchy.
  • Non-woven fabric is always non-stretchy
  • Fabric properties play an important role in choosing the best-fit size. Always check the product description and details tab.
