WE HAVE AFTERPAY

SIZING GUIDELINES

Getting your size right is THE most important thing to do before ordering one of our garments - because we want the best fit possible first time around!

So PLEASE PLEASE read below to work out your size (thank you!!)

There are two ways we suggest you take measurements - firstly and most importantly you can measure a similar garment laying flat that you already own and know fits well. Secondly, you can measure yourself as per the instructions below. (We actually suggest you do both of these to get the best possible measurement) After doing these, you then compare your measurements to those in the product size guides below each garment listing.

The most important measurement is your BUST - our dresses have plenty of room in the skirt but should be FITTED in the bust area, so its very very important you measure this please.

For your convenience, we have provided tutorial videos below showing you how to measure both of these ways, PLEASE watch them so you know how to measure correctly!

(Everything that KarlaCola sells is handmade and made to order, and due to everything being hand cut, items may vary by 1-3cm) Please do not compare your garment to a previous garment as we dont use mass produced cutting machines and each garment can vary a little in size between cuts and sewing by our many machinist 

 

INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO MEASURE YOURSELF:

Bust: Measured around your arm pit to arm pit.
To measure: Place measuring tape around the LARGEST part of bust. Then half the measurement you get to obtain bust measurement.

Length: Measured from top shoulder seam.
To measure: Place measuring tape at top of shoulder seam and measure down to hem. (for length measurement its best to measure the garment paying flat on ground rather than it on)

Waist: Measured around the smallest part of waistline. 
To measure: Place measuring tape around the smallest part of your waist (generally midway between your bust and belly button)

PLEASE NOTE - if you do not have a soft tape measure at home, you can download this one here, print it out, sticky tape it together and voila, you have yourself a soft tape measure!!

Also, below is a rough guide of our sizes compared to the standard Australian sizes, which can also help determine your size. (But again, always best to measure to get it right!) This is just a rough guide . Our dresses have plenty of room in the hips area so the most critical measurement is for your bust since our dresses are designed to be a fitted bodice. We do not suggest sizing up. If you are unsure, please message us to ask questions prior to placing a order. We are absolutely happy to help answer any and all questions you may have.
