The following size chart is for our our skirts, dresses and tops. For t-shirts, please view the Alternative Apparel Fit Guide; they also have a very helpful reference chart for finding your own measurements at the bottom of their fit guide page. Note that the measurements below reflect circumference measurements, with the exception of the back-waist length. All measurements are in U.S. standard inches.

Back-Waist Length: Vertical measurement from the most prominent vertebrae at the base of the neck to the natural waistline
Knee-Length: Our skirt lengths are designed to fit well on petites and still look good on people of average height. Knee-length means that on our petite model, the skirt hemline falls just to the middle of the knee. Measured down the center front from the natural waistline, it is 20″ for XS, 21″ for S, 22″ for M, 22.5″ for L, 23″ for XL.
Above-the-knee: Our skirt lengths are designed to fit well on petites and still look good on people of average height. Above the knee means that on our petite model, the skirt hemline falls below mid-thigh but above the knee cap. Measured down the center front from the natural waistline, it is 18-19″ for XS, 18.5-19.5″ for S, 19-20″ for M, 19-21″ for L, and 20-22″ for XL.
Fits at waist: Garment waist should fit snugly at the natural waist (smallest point)
Full at hips: Garment does not follow curve of hips, but flows outward at an angle from the waist down, as in an a-line or full circle skirt.
Close Fit: Garment will follow curves closely and may even be slightly smaller than your relaxed waistline.
Fitted: Garment follows curves closely but is not tight (tailored)
Relaxed Fit: Garment has loose curves (not tailored; usually knit)
