Made just for you, to fit especially you!
Our collection is entirely made to order. This means that we have a studio full of fabrics and patterns, and after you order, we cut, stitch, package and ship.
This way of working reduces waste, as we only make what is needed. It allows for easy personalisation, which in turn guarantees high levels of satisfaction. It helps us keep an accessible price-point while still allowing you to receive your order very quickly: all orders from our Everyday collection dispatch in 6-10 workdays, and shipment takes only 3-5 days.
For the Bridal collection, all garments are custom made to measure, no standard sizes are available. We will send you a specific list of measures we need, and then we will cut and sew your dress (this makes it easy to customise the design as well!)
For our Everyday collection, we offer five standard sizes, XS – S – M – L – XL, and we also make garments custom to your specific measurements.
Here at Larimeloom you will find three different sizing systems: One Size, XS-XL, and Custom made.
These are used for different style garments, and you can refer to your actual body measurements to figure out the correct size for you.
If you do not quite match, or if you want an extra perfect fit, no problem! Just send me your measures and I will customize the design to suit your specific body! We are all different, let’s celebrate that!
Your Larimeloom size may be different than it is in other brands – that is totally normal!
You may also choose to wear a different size than our chart recommends – that is okay too!
This page is your guide to using all the tools we have available to help you select the best size.
THE STANDARD SIZE CHART:
The most useful chart is the Standard Size Chart. This runs from XS to XL.
If you fall between sizes, I recommend in general to choosing the slightly larger size. If the garment is jersey (it will have a good amount of stretch) and you like a snug fit, you can also choose the slightly smaller size and it will fit just fine, but do not do this for non-stretch garments. Always choose the larger size if you are between sizes and ordering a woven garment. It will usually fit perfectly well, and it will be easy to have it taken in should you want a closer fit.
If you are unsure, simply opt for custom made and I will make sure the garment fits properly as intended! You will find mention in the listing of what measurements we need to customise the fit of the item you purchased.
THE “One-Size” CHART:
Then there are a few pieces, like extra loose tunics, oversized, draped cardigans and such, that need very little fitting indeed, but may be a bit overwhelming if you are petite, or under-whelming if you are on the larger side. Enter the One-Size size chart!
This sizing is used for the roomier, more relaxed fitting garments that are the most flexible in terms of size and that can be worn a variety of ways.
This chart is purposefully vague, the OS – size spans the XS to S measures, OS covers S to L and OS + covers L and XL frames.
Size up or down from the recommended size based on your measurements to achieve your desired look. The OS garments also have the most variation in fit across bodies – they fit a bit differently on everybody, and we love that!
The most accurate sizing of all is custom sizing. To take advantage, all you need to do is measure yourself and then send me your measurements either via email or via the “Get a custom fit!” option when you order. We will do the calculations for you to decide which size is best, and we will tweak it to ensure it fits your specific curves.
Each product page will let you know the key measures needed to achieve the perfect intended fit for the garment in question and you are welcome to add any note and comment you might have in the note to seller.
For bonus points.. send a picture of yourself. Getting a visual of your proportions is invaluable!
Wedding dresses are entirely custom made by default. You will not find a size option when you order, because there is no exact sizing. Such a special and expensive dress deserves to be cut and sewn to suit your specific, unique shape.
I will be requesting from you a complete list of measurements, along with clear pictures of yourself, and I will individually pattern and construct the dress based on that set of information. Design proportions will be individually evaluated based on your body size and height, fora beautifully harmonious and balanced effect.
How to figure out your size
To choose the right size, or to get a custom made garment, you will need to obtain your body measurements. Then, locate your measurements on our chart to see which size matches them most closely.
You should do this with only undergarments on, standing, and you should pull the tape snug.
If you don’t have a tape measure, you can take the measures with a piece of cord and then measure the cord with a ruler.
• Bust circumference: measure around the fullest part of your bust wearing a good bra (if you normally wear one
• Waist circumference: measure around the narrowest part of your waist (this should be right around your belly button, if you are confused can tie a ribbon around your waist too, the place where it settles is the smallest part of your waist, it could be higher then your belly button, even up to your ribs)
• Hips circumference: measure around the fullest part of your hips (this is different on everybody, you want the largest measurement whether that’s around your seat or the top of your thighs).
• Height: your total height head to toe.
Additional measures, which can be useful depending on the garment you wish to order, for a customized fit:
• Arm length: for sleeves, measure your arm starting at your underarm all the way to the desired sleeve length, and then from the tip of your shoulder bone, where it tilts from shoulder to arm when your arm is relaxed.
• Bicep: measure your bicep at the fullest part.
• Bust apex: the shoulder to nipple length is useful for getting the fit right on tops and dresses with seaming and darts.
• Dress & top lengths: measure dress and top lengths from the top of your shoulder where the bra strap will sit, and let the tape fall vertically, passing to the side of your bust.
• Skirt & pants lengths: measure skirt and pant lengths from where you want the top of the waistband to the bottom hem.
• Inseam: your inseam starts at the crotch and ends at the floor, barefoot. it is useful for pants.
• Hipbone circ.: your hipbone circ. is useful for skirts, pants and fitted tops.
