  • Taffeta burlesque nonsense skirt on clearance* from the unit we work with in the Philippines
  • Made like a bubble skirt, with a big, pouffy base that's usable both ways round
  • Higher at the front than at the back, a sort of knee at the front, midi at the back
  • Plastic boned waist band which you can adjust using the lacing at the back
  • Taffeta tie sashes sewn in at either side which you can use in a variety of ways
  • Big taffeta rosettes. I don't think you can take these off so if they're not for you, this isn't for you

  • POCKETS OMG in the sides
  • Might want to try a petticoat underneath it

M/L- waist from about 28 inches to about 34

L/XL - waistline from 35 inches to about 44

*Clearance stock; I sometimes takes garments that the small units we work with need to clear. These items are not faulty, but they won't have the usual labels and the packaging is, in all honesty, often a mess. Especially if I did it :)
It also means there's often a random selection in odd sizes.

    Sizing Advice

    At Hepburn and Leigh, we understand that it can sometimes be hard to work out from photographs whether a certain style will fit. That's why we try to provide the best sizing help possible, and if you can't find the answer to your question on the website, you're always welcome to contact us. There are also individual size charts for each brand linked to at the bottom of the page.

    Please remember that sizes are just arbitary numbers and letters - they're not personal; most of our brands are very small and have to make a decision about what size ranges to do based on their market, not on any aesthetics or value-judgements about sizes.

    It may well help to measure yourself. On size charts, waist measurements usually refer to the smallest part of your middle, the blue line on the left, and hips around the fullest part of your body, the orange line.



    When measuring for bras, the blue line is the underbust measurement and the orange is the overbust - it's placement may change depending on where the fullest part of your bust is.

    Bra Band Sizes

    In theory the UK and the USA use the same system for bra band sizes - meausre under your bust and add 4-5 inches to make an even number. In practise, different brands are using different methods and many UK brands, especially full bust brands, use your underbust measurement as your band size. US brands often run a touch larger (though notably not Elila or Rago).

    Advice in the item description:

    Whenever you click through to see the expanded view of a product, you'll see a description for the product. This should give you the basics - the style, the colour(s), the way the product fastens, the number of suspender clips it might have - and might also give some extra details. For example, if we find that a product is particularly stretchy, or that a style tends to run small, this is where we'll let you know.

    Advice by brand:

    Where possible, we try to provide the sizing information given by individual brands. Do check which brand you're buying when working out your size, as they can vary between companies, and even between styles. Please click through for more detailed information.
