Sizing is comparable to many other Australian clothing brands and much effort has gone into making it standard across the Gwyllem range. If you already own a Gwyllem garment, I recommend ordering that size for your next purchase. Be sure to also consider how you would like the garment to fit.
If you're unsure of what size to order, please contact me for advice. It's helpful to tell me the sizes of clothes you already own and send a current snap shot of yourself. Many Gwyllem garments are made using stretch cotton so don't worry if your measurements don't fall into one size category.
Some more specific info about my styles:
Gwyllem dresses are fit and flare styles, so the main measurement you need to look at is your bust and waist.
With pants, they all come with a stretch waistband, designed to accommodate size fluctuations. The main measurement here is low hip (or around your bum and the top of your thighs).
Skirts also come with stretch waistbands, so the main measurements are high and low hip.
If you already own some of my styles here is a bit of a comparison.

|High hip (10cm below waist)||94||99||104||109||114||119||124|

Bust: To measure the fullest part of your bust, ensure the tape measure is even and horizontal across the back. Measure wearing a bra you would typically wear.
Waist: Measured at the smallest part of your torso.
High hip: Measured about 10cm below your waist, usually at the hip bones.
Low hip: Measured around the fullest part of your bum, about 20cm below the waist.
Tip: When measuring yourself, if possible do so in front of a mirror to ensure the tape measure is horizontal. Hold the tape measure close against you body but not too tight.
