The following size chart will help determine which size fits you best -- they correspond to a standardized set of measurements based on a model 5'4" in height, and wearing a size 6. As you will have determined, each item is designed in such a way that the loose drape and easy fit is able to fashionably accomodate a certain range of sizes. Items that are designated ONE SIZE have a super-loose, super-draped construction that is flattering for a wide variety of body types.

HOW TO USE THE SIZE CHART
1. Determine which size below corresponds best to your relevant body measurements.
2. Each item has a lettered size (e.g. LL) with a numbered size range (e.g. LL -- fits sizes 18 - 22) -- choose the lettered size that your numbered size falls into (e.g. if you correspond to a size 20, in this case, you will be a size LL).
3. Size ranges differ to accomodate the item's particular fit -- an M/L in one item can range from sizes 10 - 16, but another item might have an M/L that fits sizes 8 - 14. Take care to always check for proper fit!
If you're not familiar with unstructured and deconstructed designs, such as you find with Japanese minimalist or European avant-garde designers, the following are some guidelines to what it's all about, and how to approach the unique nature of these creations.
What to expect :
VOLUME AND LOOSE FIT
The bigger the better -- don't be afraid to go one or two sizes bigger than usual. Let it drape!
LAYERS, LAYERS, LAYERS
Wear a shorter jacket over a long top. Pants under a dress. Go for it -- pile it on!
Shoulder seams are purposely not on top of the shoulder, but lower down the arm to create a fluid and easy-going style.
EXTRA LONG SLEEVES
So you can just roll up your sleeves and go!
WAISTS WITH ELASTICS
Most of the elasticized waistbands can be easily adjusted -- look for a small opening on the inside (usually found on the side seam or back seam) of the waistband where the elastic is accessible.
PANTS WITH EXTRA-LONG RISE
As long as the pants are loose enough, you won't have bulges in the front -- no matter what size you are!
BIGGER THAN USUAL ARMHOLES
So you don't have that strangled armpit look, i.e. the armhole is not digging into your underarm.
Remember that the average guy is not savvy enough to appreciate the elegance of dressing like this ("It's not tight enough! It's not revealing enough!") -- it's the 21st century, so rely on your own sense of style. You know best. Most of all, expect to look a hundred times better than you do in regular clothes -- expect to feel empowered and fabulous.
What not to expect? Anything ordinary or predictable -- these clothes are not for the masses. Be bold, wear everything with attitude!
