Fit Guide Trousers & Skirts

The Slow Wardrobe sizes
We follow our own sizing system, recognising that the traditional system of "ladies dress-sizes" does not account for body shape and height. See how The Slow Wardrobe sizes relate to body measurements HERE.

Trousers/Skirts
These garments are designed to fit a very wide range of sizes and heights, from a UK size 10 to 28. Check these garment measurements to give you an idea of their dimensions. All trouser and skirt lengths are measured from the top of the waistband down to the bottom of the hem, along the side seam.
