Laloom Sizing

Kaftans – Width
Laloom generally has two size fittings for the Kaftan (except where the product page explicitly says otherwise)

A.  Kaftans stitched on the outer edge of the garment
This classic kaftan style has a generous fabric allowance for a billowing and floating effect.  The garment has little shape, however, shape can be added by tying or belting the garment.
Although mostly favoured by the more curvaceous woman,  this style of kaftan dress can be worn, and enjoyed, by all.

These garments have a width measurement of 105cm (41”) when measured flat on a table (this means 105cm front and 105cm back).

Suitable size range:
◊  Laloom (Australia) size 12 – 24
◊  USA & Canada size 8 – 20
◊  UK size 12 – 24
◊  EU size 40 – 52

B. Kaftans with an inner side seam
This style also has generous fabric allowance, but the inner seam allows for more body shape.

These garments have an overall width of 105cm (41”) but have an inner side seam with a width of 70cm (28”) when laid flat on a table. (flat measurement is 70cm front and 70cm back).

Suitable size range:
◊  Laloom (Australia) size 8 – 18
◊  USA & Canada size 4 – 14
◊  UK size 8 – 18
◊  EU size 36 – 46


Kaftans – Length
Individual product pages will provide specific details of the length of each kaftan dress.

Our loose categories are based on long kaftan dresses or short kaftan dresses.
◊  Long kaftan Dresses – 125cm (49”)
◊  Short Kaftan Dresses – 82 cm (32”)

From time to time we may have a style that does not fit exactly into these categories, but any variation in detail will be shown on the product page.
