⊙ The measurements shown in the size chart above are garment measurements so should be compared to the measurements for a similar garment you already own, rather than your body measurements. For instructions on how to measure please scroll down to see 'Three easy steps to ordering the right size' below. Once you have worked out your size please scroll back up this page to place your order for this item.
⊙ You can view the size chart in inches or centimeters by clicking on the "cm" or "inch" text on the green bar above the chart.
Three easy steps to ordering the right size:
You will need the following items:
• Measuring tape
• A flat surface (such as a table or counter)
• A notepad and pen
• An item of clothing from your wardrobe that fits comfortably and is a similar style to the one you wish to purchase (e.g. if you want to buy skorts then measure a pair of skorts or a skirt that you own).
Referring to the images above, place your garment on a flat surface and record the following measurements:
A. 1/2 Waist: Measure across the top of the waistband from corner to corner.
B. Front Rise: Measure from the top of the front waistband to the crotch seam;
C. Outside Leg: Measure from the top of the waistband straight down to the bottom hem.
Compare your measurements with our size chart and order the size closest to those measurements. 1/2 Waist is usually the most important measurement if you are in a hurry, but checking all three will make for the most comfortable fit.
TIP: If you do not have a measuring tape, use your credit card. The long side of a credit card measures 8.5cm and the short side is 5.4cm. Simply use the centimetre measurements on our chart and divide by 8.5cm to get an idea of how many credit card lengths equals the measurement you are recording.
Please note: If you are unsure about which size to order, please contact us before ordering and we will help you as best we can.

Hi Steve, I just wanted to say the sKorts, in particular, are great - perfect for Africa because they're lightweight and dry very quickly like the shirt. It is also chic yet practical at the same time, so ideal for ladies in the bush. Thank you so much. I've worn them the whole time.

This is the first time I have bought skorts . They are amazingly lightweight fabric, a great deep khaki colour too. Very comfortable. They do come up small though. Great purchase and now waiting for the stone to comeback into stock.

Good quality sort, comfy ...but the waist these things is crazy small...I normally wear a size 10-12 trousers and am, granted, thick waisted and slim thighed but I had to get a size 18 and even then it is a pull to close the waist....and then the thighs feel more billowy then I'd like but I doubt the safari will be a fashion show....if I find myself with supermodels I am revising the review!
