Measuring Tips to Assure The Best Fit


With arms at sides, place tape measure under your arms and run it around the fullest part of the bustline and across the shoulder blades.


Find the natural crease of your waist by bending to one side. Run tape measure around your natural waistline, keeping one finger between the tape and your body for a comfortable fit.


With feet together, run tape measure around the fullest part of your hips/seat, about 7 to 8 inches below your waistline.


For full-length pants, run tape measure along the inside of your leg, from just below the crotch to about 1 inch below the ankle.

As we are an independent and only produce small quantities our sizes vary slightly from style to style.

All garments have been carefully measured, therefore to ensure the very best fit, we suggest taking your own body measurements, whilst wearing light-weight clothing/ underwear and standing up straight, and compare these to our size chart.

    Amazing dress. Fits perfectly and I’m so glad I ordered thr petticoat as it makes the dress just that little bit extra special.
    Came very quickly

    HOT DAMN. I’ve only had hell bunny etc. swing dresses before and this is Something Else. The fabric was weight. It stays up by itself. There’s light boning in the front and the slight stretch is perfect.

    Amazing dress! The fabric’s quality is really good and it fits perfectly

    The perfect dress! Made of slightly heavier material than the others in the same style, makes it drape perfectly, and add a big petticoat it twirls and swings beautifully. Photos do not do justice!

    Beautiful dress. Lovely and soft but with weight so it hangs perfectly. Definitely size down. Also bought it in red and that is just as fabulous.

    Dress of my dreams. I love it. Good quality. And it shipped to Finland pretty fast. I ordered size 10, it is little bit loose on me but with the belt it looks perfect! Thank youu.

    I have looked for the perfect black off-shoulder dress for years and after returning one from a much more expensive company, I discovered British Retro and decided to buy this dress.
    I’m a size 12 with a wide back, I looked at the size measurements on this page and I was closer to their 16. I took the advice from other reviewers and sized down to a 14, which is perfect! The dress has a good weight to it but still has lots of movement and is very comfortable. Wearing with a petticoat is even better!
    I’m so glad I found this, it’s stunning!
