I am unsure of sizing and I can't make it into your boutique, how do I know what will work for my body shape?
Contact us in store by phoning +61 3 9419 3916 and we can help you with sizing and fit. The Abbie James stylists will soon be offering complimentary virtual styling sessions. Join our newsletter to be kept up to date of when these are available.
Your menu does not have options for men or women. How do I know what items to look at?
That's simple, you can look at all of the styles. Most styles work on both masculine and feminine body shapes. We choose not to catagorise styles into gender as we believe gender does not depict what you can wear. A lot of our brands are specifically genderless, others are traditionally feminine but work well over all body shapes, while some are traditionally feminine, but please don't let that stop you!
How does sizing work?
Most styles are female sizing. For masculine body shapes we suggest sizing up one size. Read the description of each style as this will explain how the sizing works. Our stylists are familiar with how each style works on different body shapes and we are happy to help. Simply call the boutique on 0405 193 282. Keep in mind, if it does not fit, you are welcome to exchange for a different size or style.
