our fit and the low down on shrinkage
Our clothing is designed to fit a woman in mid life, known as a“misses fit”. This means our styling is a bit wider in the torso, nothing is too tight across the stomach, but is still cut to flatter your beautiful curves; to make you look and feel wonderful.
The size chart above is a good general guide to fit, but if you have questions or would like help deciding on a size just reach out and we are happy to provide measurements for a specific garment or suggestions on an appropriate style for your body type. If an item is designed to have a slimmer fit or styled more generously than usual that will be noted in the product description.
Yes, natural fiber textiles do shrink, however, that is our problem, not yours! To account for this, all of our clothing is garment washed, meaning the shrinkage of each textile is tested, calculated and added to the pattern before the style is cut and sewn, and then each garment is laundered and dried after it is completed, bringing it back to its intended size.
This means you may machine wash and dry your Goddess Gear according to care instructions (most are cold water wash/dry cool) without fear of it shrinking further. Natural fibers will loosen as you wear them and then when washed resume their previous size, this is normal and to be expected.
