it starts with the fit of the dress

Only YOU know how you want your knit dresses to fit. The first step is recognizing if you prefer that your  dresses hug  your body, skim your body or fit loosely over your body. Once you decide, you can use the information below to get YOUR best fit.


Download the Fit, Style and Color Guide, record your information as preferences, and have it handy at your fingertips each time you place an order.

Take your body measurements

Take your body measurements at the bust, waist and hip. We also recommend taking them at the tummy because that measurement may actually be larger than the hip. Once you have your actual measurements in hand, use chart above to determine the FIT number and silhouette to order.


The Fit Number you select will be based on how you want your  garment to fit. Because the garments are knits, they will stretch over  the body.  With each Fit Number there is an associated range of measurements given for the bust, waist and hips. Each range of measurements starts with the actual measurement of the garment without it being stretched. The dress will stretch approximately 4” beyond the actual  measurement of the garment. 


Select your best silhouette

We offer two silhouettes in our basic dress, a contoured silhouette that will allow a closer fit in the waist for those whose waistlines are proportionally smaller than their bust and hips; and a straight cut silhouette for those whose waistline measurements are more in line with their bust and hip. The straight silhouette is also better suited for those who simply prefer more room in the waistline.

Determine if you need a larger bottom Fit Number

For those who are fuller in the bust relative to their other measurements, we offer a lowered armhole option when you select either a 3/4 or long sleeve. Using this option not only gives more room in the bust, but gives additional room in the upper arm for those who may need it.
