Mimi's Measurement Guide 

 Buying online should never be scary...
Shopping anywhere should always be fun!

We try our best to help you get the right fit each and every time!

What's the secret?
We provide exact, unstretched measurements for each item in our store.

Did you know?
Not all sizes are created equal. Sizing standards vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. For one, a 1X top could actually measure up to a 3X.
That is why it's important to pay close attention to each item's exact measurements. Hint: your bra size is not your bust size.

How do you get the right fit?
Please use the guidelines below when measuring for our clothing:

*With your arms at your side, place the tape measure around the fullest part of your chest, under your arms.
*Make sure that the tape measure remains parallel to the floor.
*The length indicated on the tape measure is your bust measurement.

Waist
*While standing, wrap the tape measure around your natural waistline.
*Keep the tape comfortably loose.
*The length indicated on the tape measure is your waist measurement.

Hips
*While standing with your feet together, wrap the tape measure around the fullest part of your body between your waist and your knees. This is approximately 8 inches below your waist.
*Make sure that the tape measure remains parallel to the floor.
*The length indicated on the tape measure is your hip measurement.

About Fabric Content:
Fabric also plays a role in how a garment will fit. The good news is that we also provide fabric content for each item. Here’s a brief lesson on some of the most popular fabrics used in today’s fashions:

* Rayon: Also knows as Viscose. Produced from naturally occurring polymers. Rayon/Viscose is a very versatile fiber and has the same comfort properties as natural fibers. It can imitate the feel and texture of silk, wool, cotton, and linen. Rayon/Viscose fabrics are soft, smooth, cool, comfortable, and highly absorbent, but they do not insulate body heat, making them ideal for use in hot and humid climates. It’s actually more breathable than cotton! It also adds a great comfortable stretch blended with any fabric.

* Cotton: A natural and highly absorbent fabric mainly used for t-shirts, bed sheets, denim, and more. It is the least versatile fabric when used alone. However, it is sometimes blended with other fibers, including Rayon/Viscose, and synthetic fibers such as polyester to provide a better stretch.

* Polyester: The most widely used manufactured fiber in the U.S. Polyester fabrics may exhibit other advantages over natural fabrics, e.g., improved wrinkle resistance. As a result, polyester fibers are often spun together with other fibers to produce a cloth with blended properties. Depending on the blend, you can either get a soft, silky fabric or a more versatile cotton-feel fabric.

* Spandex:  Known for it’s incredible stretch. Great when blended with other fabrics for a more comfortable fit. It is lightweight, soft and smooth, and resistant to body oils, perspiration, lotions, and detergents.
