We have reviewed all of our product patterns, and have created this handy Magpie Goose size guide! Measure yourself up as per our instructions below, and then you'll know you're roughly a size X in Magpie Goose!
All future products will be made with this size guide in mind - we are on the path to consistency!
* This chart refers to your body measurements (in cm) Actual garment measurements can be found on each individual product page.
HOW TO MEASURE YOURSELF TO FIND YOUR BEST FIT:
Use a measuring tape. Alternatively, you can use a piece of ribbon/string and then measure it with a ruler afterwards.
Don’t hold the tape measure too tightly to your body, you should be able to breathe comfortably when measuring.
It makes things easier if you do your measurements in front of a mirror or if you have a friend to help you out.
Take your measurements over bare skin or in your underwear.
Note: it is a good idea to take into account what underwear you normally wear. For example: if you normally wear a padded bra, it’s best to measure whilst wearing that bra as the padding can quite dramatically alter your measurements. Similarly, if it is a style that you wouldn't normally wear a bra with, measure over your bare skin.
With your shoulders relaxed and arms by your sides measure the largest point of your bust, ensure the tape measure is held level around your back.
Relax (don’t breathe in!) and measure the narrowest part of your waist, if you are unsure, bend sideways and where you ‘bend’ is a good indicator.
Stand with your feet together. Measure around the widest part of your hips and bottom. Ensure you keep the tape measure level.
HOW TO USE GARMENT MEASUREMENTS TO GET YOUR BEST FIT:Each of the Magpie Goose product pages will have some key measurements of that specific garment and advice about the fit (eg. oversized, true to size etc).
Perfect in every way.
I love my new Lily Pads shirt
I have been looking at the beautiful garments from Magpie Goose for some time and have wanted to purchase a great number of them, however I seldom purchase clothing online - I worry about sizing, quality etc. I did not need to worry with Magpie Goose! The overall shopping experience was very easy and stress free; the size that I ordered fits perfectly; and the quality of the fabric and sewing is exceptional. I love learning about the stories behind the artwork on the fabric. This is wearable art at it’s best! I will definitely be purchasing more of your garments. Thanks again for a beautiful shirt, Lisa.
Women's Shirt - Lily pads
Fabric a little stiff, so needed a gentle wash. Fit and cut terrific thank you. It was actually a Christmas present for a friend, but it was a really good fit (Taking a guess with sizing!) and suited the recipient perfectly
