Clothes That Fit Whatever Your Size

At L&F, our belief that we should celebrate women for who we are and not our dress size underpins how we create and size our clothes.

Despite the average Australian women’s dress size sitting between 14 and 16, most fashion brands continue to focus on size 8 models as the basis for design and fit. We start a level up – all our base blocks start at a size 10.

Our initial fittings are done on a size 12 body; L&F garment patterns are then scaled up from there before they are checked again on size 18 and size 22 bodies to ensure the cuts translate through the size range.
