SIZE GUIDEBack to FAQ
Use the table below to determine your size based on your measurements.
If one of your measurements falls between sizes, please order the smaller size for a tighter fit or the larger size for a looser fit.
General tip: when in doubt, choose the smaller size as the LIV|VIE S.U.I.T. naturally falls loose above the elastics at your wrists, your hips and your ankles.
If your chest and waist measurements correspond with two different sizes, we would advise ordering the size that matches your chest circumference.
Instructions for taking correct body measurements:
When taking your measurements, it is best to do this in your underwear. This prevents the measurements from being larger. Use a flexible measuring tape and do not pull the measuring tape too tight while measuring. The sizes of the LIV|VIE S.U.I.T. refer to standard international sizes. See the table above for reference and guidance.
Measure the circumference around your body over the fullest part of the bust, while wearing a correctly fitting bra. Make sure the measuring tape is parallel with the floor all the way around.
Measure the circumference around your body at your natural waistline. Your waistline is the narrowest / slimmest part of torso. Waist measurement is a reference measurement. So make sure to measure at the point where your torso is slimmest, and not where you want your pants to sit.
Measure the circumference around your body at the top of the legs, at the widest part of the body. Make sure the measuring tape is parallel with the floor all the way around.
In the Shop, in the product description section of the S.U.I.T., you can find more information about the fitting of the S.U.I.T. and the amount of stretch of the mulberry silk.
The flexible elastic
By using an extra wide, stitched-through and flexible elastic in the blouse and in the pants, we guarantee a perfect finish in the stretch and elastic quality of the S.U.I.T. This contributes to the wearing comfort of the S.U.I.T. because the blouse and pants stay neatly on the hips, wrists and ankles without feeling stiff or applying pressure. As a result, we guarantee a soft and flexible feeling as well as an optimal freedom of movement.
Two-piece S.U.I.T. set
Because the elastics of the blouse and pants stay neatly on your hips when veiled on top of each other, your S.U.I.T. may even give the impression of being a one-piece jumpsuit instead of a two-piece set.
