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).
Very happy with the quality of the linen, the print and the top’s fit. 1st purchase from Magpie Goose but won’t be my last.
I am the proud owner of a reversible Lanky jacket, purchased a few weeks ago from Magpie Goose. The brolga motif, designed by Dominica Williams, is magnificent. She is a great artist with a very bright future ahead and I hope to see many more of her designs. In the Canberra winter, I wear the jacket on top of a thick jumper and has been admired by everyone. My congratulations to Dominica and to Magpie Goose for bringing these wonderful designs to the rest of Australia and hopefully, to the world. All the best for the future, Amalia
The fabric of this top is do soft and beautiful to wear , the dizing is true to size and this top is especially flattering for someone such as myself who is carrying some extra weight around the waistline.
Love my Lanky top - fits true to size and beautiful quality fabric.
