Our sizing is a guide only.
The bodice dress measurements fall perfectly in line with our sizing chart. Before placing your order we advise that you measure your chest (around your back and over the centre of your bust) and your waist (at the smallest part) against our sizing chart.
Some of our pieces may not be intended to be worn tight to the figure. In this case, the measurements provided within each size bracket are the SUGGESTED figure size for the garment rather than the exact sizing of the piece.
Our advice: as there is no give to our fabric, if you have a fuller bust we would advise sizing up. Please contact us at hello@olanaclothing for advice before placing your order should you like a little help with sizing.
Note: As all of our garments are hand cut and sewn, please understand that we work at a 1cm tolerance either side of the measurement.
If you require specific, individual tailored measurements or lengths, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our very best to accommodate you. We do offer a bespoke tailoring service where we are able to create bespoke bodice sizes and skirt lengths for an additional fee.
As uncomplicated and understated as a summer dress can be, Marlowe offers a combination of comfort and style that's fused together with a gentle hint of sex appeal. Boxy in design, Marlowe floats over the figure beautifully to reveal a silhouette that's soft, liberated and as light as air. Featuring rouleau tie straps that allow for adjustable lengthening whilst also adding a gentle touch of summer sweetness.
We advise that the Marlowe dress is an apron style dress and can be exposing on ladies with larger chests. We suggest wearing it tossed over a bikini or with a pretty bralet underneath!
