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).
Great fit and compliments as soon as I put it on. Great to support First Nations designers.
The Lanky midi is a great fit, the fabric feels soft and is such great quality. The design is gorgeous, it feels really fabulous to wear!
The Lanky midi dress is one of the best dresses I've purchased in recent times. The fabric is soft, and has a flattering drape whether it is tied at the waist or not. She's gorgeous with white brogues or sneakers, or brown boots, and is super cute under a denim jacket. Her pockets are discreet, and she is so comfortable. I reckon she'll be great in winter with tights, a long sleeved undershirt and oversized cardi.
I love this dress - it's great for hot summer days. I receive compliments when I wear it & the print is gorgeous!
beautiful quality I have had lots of compliments on this top love the print, colour and quality that I am now going to buy the dress.
