How do I know what my correct size is?

Petite = 32A or size 2 - 4 

Small = 32B & 34A or size 4 - 6

Medium = 34B & 36A or size 6 - 8

X-Large = 36C & 38B or size 12 - 14

Please note, all special orders are final sale because State Law says lingerie is not returnable (no exchanges, no returns, no exceptions)... so please make sure you order the correct size and color!

What is the best way to wash my item?

We recommend Dry Cleaning for most of your silk purchases. That's because water can change the shiny appearance of our beautiful silk charmeuse and shrink the silk chiffon. For small items such as panties, please hand-wash - your delicate items don't stand a chance against the rough agitation of the washing machine. The fabric may tangle, crease or bunch up. Soak the panties for about half an hour in lukewarm, soapy water before rinsing. Avoid hot water which will shrink natural fibers. If you absolutely must machine wash, put all like items in a mesh lingerie bag -- and wash on the delicate cycle. Drip dry - do not put in the dryer! You may need to touch up with a warm iron to restore the shape of the laces and bows.....
