Kablooie Store – Sizing Information

Ladies Tops and Dresses

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 poplin 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 are pulled on over the head. If you’re between sizes, I recommend you size down.

 

Measurements – Regular Top and Regular Dress

The Kablooie Regular top is a boxy, relaxed fit woven cotton top, with no stretch.  Is sits lower on the hips and has enough length to tuck in our wear out over jeans or a skirt.

The Kablooie Regular dress is a boxy, relaxed fit A line dress, with pockets, with a boxy, oversized silhouette.

Measurements – Babydoll Dress 

The kablooie babydoll dress has the same top and shoulders design, with round higher neckline and drop sleeves, as the regular dress and top.  It has a flattering raised, gathered wasitline, and is more roomy around the waist and hips because of this larger gathered skirt volume.

Measurements – Shift Dress

The Kablooie Shift Dress 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.

Ladies Skirts

All ladies regular skirts are 55 cm length (about knee length, depending on your height).  All ladies midi skirts are 65 cm length (about mid calf, again depending on your height).  Maxi skirts in the designer collections are 85cm long, which falls to 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.
