Sizing advice

Our shirts and shirt dresses are designed to give a slim fit with flattering back seams and tapered 3/4 length sleeves. Due to the variety of cottons used, we have cut some slightly larger or smaller to make use of the character of the weave, but generally you will be the same size in all our designs. We have provided specific notes on each dress.

START WITH THE SHOULDERS FOR A PERFECT FIT

It may be easiest to compare our product measurements to a similar garment you already own and whose fit you like. To measure its shoulder width, place the garment front side down on a flat surface and measure from the top of the sleeve, straight across the back, to the top of the other sleeve.

Or, to measure your own shoulder width, think of a line going from your armpit vertically to your shoulder, this is the shoulder point. Hold the tape measure here and measure straight across your back to the same point on the other shoulder.

If you would prefer a looser fit, please choose two sizes up.

Our model is 5″10 and is wearing a size S. The length of the dresses increases by 1cm for each size. The shirts are cut to a length that will work tucked in or worn outside.

Please email info@alexblackcollection.com if you need any help with sizing or selecting the best style for a particular body type, we will be more than happy to help.

How to measure

CHEST: Measure under your arms, around your torso at the fullest part of your chest.

SHOULDERS: Think of a line going from your armpit vertically to your shoulder, this is the shoulder point. Hold the tape measure here and measure straight across your back to the same point on the other shoulder.

HIPS: Put your feet together, and wrap a measuring tape straight and snug around the widest part of your hips.

DRESS LENGTH: Measured from the point where the shoulder seam would meet your collar, vertically down to the hem.

SHIRT LENGTH: Measured from the top of the placket to the bottom of the hem.
