Size Guides / Care Instructions

SIZE GUIDE

We never want to send you something that doesn't fit properly so we have size guides available on each product page. Just click the drop down list beside the product image and choose the size that suits you most. If you are between sizes, order the next larger size.

You look your best when the fit and cut are just right. Followed are sizes you may need when selecting your item. We highly recommend you have a local professional tailor take your measurements. However, if you want to measure by yourself, here are a few tips when measuring yourself:

  • Use a measuring tape! A ruler is for flat surfaces, the measuring tape is for shapely people;
  • Don't lie about your numbers! "guess-timating" will only hurt you and your pockets in the long run;
  • Always, always, ALWAYS know the main 3 measurements - Bust, Waist, and Hips!.....and your height of course.
NeckWrap the measuring tape around the neck, beginning at about one inch from the meeting of your neck and shoulders.
BustWearing your usual bra, with arms relaxed at your sides, measure your bust at the fullest point, keeping the tape parallel to the floor. It takes it past over both your nipples, under the armhole & over the shoulder blades, around your back about where your bra strap is.
Arm LengthGet help for this one because it’s hard to do yourself. Place your hand at your waist (your elbow should be bent at a 90-degree angle). Then start at the middle of the back of your neck and measure to your shoulder, down your arm to the elbow, and then on to the wrist.
WaistMeasure around the narrowest part of the natural waistline. To find your natural waistline, bend to one side. There will usually be a crease where you bend. Often it is just below your ribcage. That's your natural waistline.
HipsStanding with heels together, measure around your body at the broadest part of your hips (approximately 8" below your natural waistline). This will include the fullest part of your backside too & should be just about where your legs meet your torso.
ThighMeasure the circumference of the fullest part of your thigh. Wrap the tape measure around your thigh from front to back and then around to the front.
CalfStand straight and measure around the widest part of your calf.
ShoulderThis is one that may be easier with the help of a friend. Measure your upper back from the tip of one shoulder to the tip of the other. Try not to hunch over.
Upper ArmMeasure the circumference of your arm. Wrap the tape measure around the widest part of your upper arm from front to back and around to the start point.
WristUse a tape measure to measure your wrist around the widest point.
Back LengthCenter Back is the vertical length taken from Center Back Neck Point (Cervical Vertebra or C7) to the Waistline level. The measurement is made only when the head is erected.
Outer legMeasure from the top of the waistband in a straight line down to the desired length (usually slightly above the ground when barefoot: if wearing shoes, slightly above the top of the heel).
Inner LegThis is the distance from the uppermost inner part of your thigh to the bottom of your ankle. The proper inseam on a pair of pants you’re going to purchase will depend on the height of the heel you’ll be wearing with them.

CARE GUIDE

Do

  • Always read the care label and washing instructions before washing your clothes.
  • Arrange your laundry into groups with similar wash care instructions and organize into whites, darks and colors.
  • The care label washing temperature is the highest permitted temperature. But if you are unsure, always wash at a lower temperature rather than higher.
  • Rinse swimwear immediately after use and do not wring.
  • Turn garment inside out before washing.

Don't

  • Avoid using too much detergent.
  • Do not use fabric detergents which contain bleach.
  • Do not tumble dry garment unless indicated on the care label.
  • Do not iron prints, trims or embellishments.
  • Do not leave garments with white and contrast colored panels soaking for prolonged periods.
  • Garments with metal trims should not be left to soak.

Footwear

  • We recommend treating suede & nubuck with an appropriate protector before wear.
  • A suede brush will help to keep the nap raised & the suede looking new.
  • If your shoes get wet, stuff them with newspaper and dry naturally, away from a direct heat source.
  • This will prevent the outer materials drying out and cracking.
  • Unless otherwise stated, trainers and canvas shoes should not go in the washing machine.
  • If they get dirty, let them dry and remove the excess dirt with a clean bush or cloth.
  • For heeled products, check top pieces (heel tips) regularly & when they start to wear down take them to a good shoe repair shop and have them replaced to avoid slipping or causing further damage to your shoes.
  • When purchasing leather products from HandpickLook, please remember that it is a natural product & some variations between pairs in terms of color and finishes may
