Sizing

Size Guidelines

At Lorraine and Blair our garments are all self-drafted. They are designed for comfort and have been sized generously. As each person’s level of comfort differs, we recommend that you align with your normal AU size and if in doubt size up.

As an example, I am a size 8-10 (AU Small) in most clothing. However in sleep wear, I prefer to wear a Medium. My daughter is also an 8-10 (AU Small) and she always chooses our Small sizing as she prefers a more snug fit.

 As a guide, here is our sizing comparative with the following Australian sizes (AU)

 

XS

6

S

8-10

M

10-12

L

14-16

XL

18

 

Below is a list of our finished garment sizes. The sizing is taken when they are LAYING FLAT. If you want to double check we suggest you measure a similar garment laying flat that you already own and know fits well.  Then compare your measurements to those in the product size guides below.

 

Boxer Shorts – LYING FLAT on a hard surface.

Waistband measurement – holding the waistband flat, front side facing up measure from the left side to the right side in a straight line.

Side length – measure in a straight line down one side of the boxers from the top to the bottom.

Front Centre – From the middle top of the boxers at the front in a straight line to the crotch seam.

Leg opening. – using 1 leg hole, pull to a straight line and measure from left to right.
