WHAT BRA SIZE ARE YOU?
STEP 1 - BACK MEASUREMENT
Measure around your rib cage, just under the breast using a flexible tape measure. Ensure that the tape is level around the back, and hold it firmly but comfortably. This will give you your band size.

STEP 2 - CUP MEASUREMENT
Now measure around the fullest part of your breast - ensuring tape is level at the back.

STEP 3 - DETERMINE WHAT BRA SIZE YOU ARE
Minus your cup measurement from your back measurement. The difference will determine what cup size you are.

Take a look at the following table to determine which bra size you are.

BACK MEASUREMENT CUP SIZE -TO GET THIS MINUS YOUR CUP MEASUREMENT FROM YOUR BACK MEASUREMENT
25 – 26 = 30" A Cup = 4"
27 – 28 = 32" B Cup = 5"
29 – 30 = 34" C Cup = 6"

FOOTWEAR
After a period of time and wear, our shoes will start to look a little tired. Here are some tips to ensure they look as good as new for longer.

SUEDE AND NUBUCK
Treat with an appropriate protector before wear. Invest in a suede brush and give them a little attention from time to time to keep the nap raised and looking fresh.

TRAINERS
Our trainers and canvas shoes, unless we advise you, aren't made to go in the washing machine.
If they do get dirty, let them dry and remove excess dirt with a brush or cloth.

WHEN IT RAINS
If your shoes ever get wet, resist the temptation of using your hairdryer on them! Stuff them with newspaper and let them dry naturally, away from a direct heat source. This will prevent the leather upper drying out and cracking.

TIPS
Check the top pieces on your heels regularly just to make sure they aren't wearing through to the heeling material.
