Size Guide

Sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL)

The Lost Cami is intended to be worn with a negative ease of approximately 4 - 6 inches / 10 - 15 cm at the bust. The sizes are based on a bust circumference of approximately:
28-30 (32-34) 36-38 (40-42) 44-46 (48-50) 52-54, (56-58) inches
71-76 (81-86) 91.5-96.5 (101.5- 106.5) 111.5-117 (122-127) 132-137 (142-147) cm.

Finished Garment Measurement

Bust 24 (28) 32 (36) 40 (44) 48 (52) inches
61 (71) 81 (91) 101 (111.5) 122 (132) cm

Measure yourself before beginning to ensure that you choose the right size. If you plan on wearing this top with a bra, take that into account when measuring as the total bust length (measurement E in schematic) will be different. For example: Your bust circumference is 32 - 4 = 28 inches [81 cm - 10 cm = 71 cm] i.e. work a size S. If you are in between two sizes, you can choose the smaller size as it is quite stretchy.
