Not only will your shirt fit you perfectly, you won’t see it on any one else!  Have you ever noticed your shirt bunching out at the waist, becoming loose or hanging out untidily at the back?  Are your shirts too big or too small in places or do your sleeves sit too short?

All our women’s shirts are tailored to a woman’s body shape, based on two specific ‘blocks’ to offer a best fit for every body shape. Both shirts work well tucked in or worn out over jeans or a skirt. Our shirts are perfect for those who like a practical well made shirt.

The Classic Fit is a traditional woman’s shirt slightly straighter through the waist and sitting neatly on the hip. Fitted at the shoulders and bust, the body of the shirt is shaped with room to move.

The Hipster Fit has been produced to complement a slightly leaner build as it is slightly more tapered through the waist and a longer fit through the body. This shirt has longer sleeves and falls below the hips. The shape of this shirt is not super slim and is suitable for a medium to small build.

Measure for Measure

What2ware is all about great fit, so it’s worth spending a little time getting acquainted with your tape measure to ensure all your garments fit you perfectly. Using this easy-to-follow measuring guide, take your measurements in centimetres or inches our size charts allow for both metric and imperial.

 

Measuring Guide

Here are some tips to help you order the correct size. If you don’t have a measuring tape, use a piece of string and hold it alongside a ruler. It is best to measure with the type of bra you normally wear with a shirt.

Bust

Lift your arms and measure around your body, crossing over the fullest part of your chest and over your shoulder blades at the back. Ladies it is worth noting that a well fittined bra has already taken your sizing for you. A 10A would wear a Small shirt as the 10 is your measurement across your back, similarly a 16C would be a size XLarge shirt.

Sleeves
With your arm bent at 90 degrees, place your hand on your hip measure from the shoulder to your elbow, and down to your wrist. Our charts show sleeve length with and without cuffs. We are not hiding extra length in an oversize cuff.

Waist
Keeping the tape measure straight and level, measure around the smallest part of your natural waist.

Hips
Measure around the fullest part of your hips approximately 20-30cm below your waist. The tape measure should be able to slide up, down and over your bottom.
