Product Sizing

Kablooie Store – Sizing Information

Heeeeey!! Here you’ll find more detail on sizing and garment style.

If you don’t find your answer here, please get in touch via the contact form at the bottom of the page.

What is the sizing like?

Ladies tops and dresses are designed to be a relaxed fit with a boxy silhouette – oversized even.  They are not tailored or fitted to your silhouette.  All designer collections are made from a woven cotton with no stretch. Other pieces are made from thicker woven cotton, no stretch.

Kablooie tops and dresses are not slim fit or fitted – please size down from your normal size if you would like a slimmer fit, but please remember the tops and dresses have no fastenings or zips and still need to be pulled on over the head. If you’re between sizes, I recommend you size down.

Skirts have an elastic waist so are designed to fit over a couple of sizes, and can be pulled higher above the waist or worn lower on the hips.  Where you wear it will affect the fit. Fit is generous for skirts, compared to a tailored, buttoned or zipped garment.

Regular skirts and dresses are designs to sit just above the knee, with midi length going below the knee, and maxi going to above the ankle.

This is an average fit, and will vary based on your height and body shape, which changes how the garment sits on you.

SIZING CHARTS

Hi wonderful person – here are a set of sizing charts for all Kablooie styles for sale here on my website.  The size measurements for the ladies dresses and tops are taken from a set of sample garments we have created, cut by hand and sewn in the same way that your order will be.

Please understand these are the average dimensions of the ACTUAL garment, not of your body.  For example, the bust measurements is measuring across the bust of a garment from one underarm curve to another, when the garment is laid flat.  Individually made garments may vary by a centimetre, measurements are approximate.

All bust, waist and length measurements are taken across the front of the garment when it is laid flat.

You would double this flat measurement to get the full garment circumference.  If you are measuring yourself, you will need the garment measurement to be larger than your measurements.

Please note the style of Kablooie garments is intended to be loose, relaxed and not fitted or tailored.  Please pay attention to the product photos to see how the garment is intended to fit.

Ladies Gathered Skirt Measurements

All ladies regular skirts are about knee length, depending on your height.  All ladies midi skirts are below the knee to about mid calf, again depending on your height.  Maxi skirts in the designer collections are above the ankle (depending on your height).

Skirt waist measurements above are for an elastic waist, which has more give than a tailored waist with a zip or button opening.  Its comfy, forgiving, and can move around a little depending on where you like your skirt to sit.  Because ladies sizing can be variable, I’ve tried to give a waist range that the elastic waist will fit comfortably. If you’re unsure, I would advise you size down rather than up.

It is slightly tailored around the bust, with darts, but is designed to be relaxed fit still around the hips and waist with an A line silhouette. A this dress is a smaller fit due to the more tailored style, I don’t recommend you size down if you’re between sizes.
