As you’ve probably already realised, ordering the correct size isn’t always easy! The fit of garments depends a lot on the cut and fabric as well as the styling of the item. Because we want your online shopping experience at Goddiva to be as straightforward as possible we have devised this easy to use measuring guide and size chart to help make sure that you find the perfect fit every time!

Measuring Tips

1. Using a measuring tape, measure your body rather than with clothes on top, this will give you a more accurate reading.

2. Having difficulty locating your waist? An easy way to find your natural waist it to bend to one side and measure where it creases.

3. Want to know if something will fit? We always specify the length of our garments in the ‘details’ tab so the easiest way is to measure an item that you know already fits you and compare the two measurements. - SIMPLES!
