it's not about what size you wear
it's about how you wear your size.
One of the BEST things about Agnes & Dora is the consistent sizing!
Below is the standard sizing guide, along with some further explanation and recommendations on commonly stocked favorites!
TTS = TRUE TO SIZE
tops & tunics
cold shoulder tunic
With a fit similar to the classic Swing Tunic, the Cold Shoulder is an unbelievably comfortable piece. The fit is TTS, and hits around mid thigh. Shorter ladies can often wear this as DRESS also! The ruffle detail around the chest lays beautifully and is a great addition to make this piece able to dress Up or Down!
Our super soft Dolmans are TTS for a standard fit. However, if you want to size UP, it will allow for more length for wearing with leggings! They are fitted at the waist, but have extra fabric around your mid-section which is flattering on everyBODY!
Essential Tanks are just that, ESSENTIAL! Everyone needs one or ten of these in their closet. The fit is TTS, with a longer, flowy cut at the bottom. The arm holes are going to be stretchy and comfortable, without drooping underneath. It is a staple item that can be worn all year. Simply thrown on a Cardigan and take it into Fall/Winter!
frill sleeve top
This feminine top is the perfect blend of stylish, easy, and comfortable. It is TTS, very slightly fitted, and hits at the waist. The sleeves are loose and very flowy. They tend to lay relaxed on the arm in the most beautiful way, giving a fashionable edge to this "dress it up or dress it down" top.
The Hi-Lo Tee is a new take on the classic Hi-Lo Tunic and we are IN LOVE! It is TTS, with a loose straight-cut fit. The back is going to be 3-4 inches lower than the front, and the slit on the sides give it a very feminine look. With half length sleeves, it is perfect all year!
A favorite of all Agnes & Dora lovers, the Muse Top is one of our most popular items. The curved empire hemline gives a feminine look, while being loose and flowy at the bottom. The fit is TTS, or you can size up or down ONE size depending on what you want to wear it with. The main size difference is going to be in the arms/shoulders/bust area. You can size down, if you are smaller in those areas for a shorter fit at the bottom. Sizing up will make it longer if you want to be sure your bottom is covered with leggings. However, if you want it to hit you just below the waist and around the bottom of your buttox, TTS is the way to go.
relaxed ruffle tee
With an amazing fit on everyBODY, this top is climbing the charts! The fit is TTS, with the hemline hitting you at or just below the belly button. The material is so soft and stretchy, and it lays beautifully on the body. You can size down ONE size in this if you would like. Our recommendations are to only do so if you are on the shorter side, due to the seam being able to lay in the correct place on the torso.
Did someone say POCKETS?! Why yes, yes we did. The Swing Tunic is a must have, with its comfortable material, flowy fit, and those wonderful pockets we mentioned. The sizing is TTS, hitting around upper-mid thigh. It goes great with skinny or boyfriend-cut jeans, or of course a pair of A&D leggings. If you are shorter, you can size up and even wear it as a DRESS!
The Tiered Tunic is a beautiful combination of femininity, comfortable fit, and layered goodness. The fit is TTS, with the two layers hitting around the waist on top, and around the hips/bottom, for the lower one. We have seen women of every shape, size, and height wear these and just ooze confidence when they are in it!
Did you know?
Each of our dresses is named after an influential woman in history?!
This dress is a TTS sheer beauty! It does come with a slip that hits just at/above the knee to keep a modest appearance, and the curved empire waistline is a great feature! Length will be lower calf to the top of the ankles depending on your height. It is very flowy and loose through the midsection, keeping it comfortable and a hit for everyBODY!
The Joplin Dress is a favorite for everyone who tries it! We can't say enough about the sharkbite hemline and flowy fit. The sizing will be mainly TTS. Some will want to size up or down ONE depending on height. On a 5'7" lady size 10-12 it is hitting a couple of inches above the knee on average. Some ladies on the shorter side can size down if they want it a bit shorter, and ladies on the taller side can size up for a little more coverage. When sizing down, however, keep in mind your bust size, as most of the sizing is focused in this area.
The Kahlo Dress is a casual chic friend of every woman. The pocket adds a laid-back vibe and the flowy and stretchy fit makes it something you will love to throw on for anything. Sizing is TTS, however it is made to be a relaxed fit (not tight), so keep that in mind. Also,the length with TTS is going to be about 4-5 inches above the knee for someone who is 5'7" size 8-10. We love pairing ours with leggings or skinny jeans! If you want to wear it as a true dress, you may want to size up one for more length.
We can't get enough POCKETS! A crowd favorite, the Oakley Dress is amazing for more than just the pockets. The curved empire waist and pleated front gives that feminine touch to a comfortable style. Most are going to want to size down ONE to TWO sizes in this dress. The material is very stretchy, and most go down one size and it fits perfectly. If you are particularly smaller in the shoulders/arms/bust area, you may want to go down two sizes.
This maxi stunner is simply amazing! The Spencer Dress is TTS, with an empire waistline. The waist band is very stretchy and is even made so you can scrunch it up to adjust the dress length a couple of inches! The top does criss-cross in the middle, and sometimes can require an undershirt. However, if you wear it BACKWARDS the neckline is at your neck, and the plunge is in the back and hits about at the top of where your undergarment should be. If it wasn't enough already, it is truly elegant when worn that way.
The Walker Dress is a vintage-style beauty, with relaxed bell sleeves, a modest neck and hem line! Sizing is TTS, and the material is very soft and stretchy. The length is going to be at or just below the knee, and the cut is a little more straight than some other A&D pieces. However, it still has that beautiful flow and stretch.
This skirt is not only True to Size, but True to NAME! You will never
want to take this skirt off. The stretchy, drawstring waistband,
comfortable material, and knee length hemline make it irresistible. And the feminine curved slits on the side just add one more thing to love! The material is called Ponte and is thicker that some of A&D's other materials, giving plenty of support, coverage, and wear-ability. This skirt is very stretchy and looks great on everyone!
This classic is more wearable than ever! The pencil skirt is TTS, or possibly size up ONE if you would like a little more room. The waistband is thick and sits great at your natural waist. Length will hit between the top and bottom of the knee cap depending on height.
The Agnes & Dora Midi Skirt is an updated take on a vintage classic! It is generally TTS, but depending on where on your torso you want to wear it, you may want to size down ONE. If you have a smaller natural waist than you do at your hips, you can size down one and pull the skirt higher, with the length hitting about the knees. If you want to wear it at your hips, go TTS, and length should hit upper-mid calf.
