size chart

Our knickers are designed and handmade with love right here in Cape Town for the South African woman. This means you can order with confidence knowing that each item conforms to the measurements below.

How our sizing compares to Cotton On and Woolworths?

Sizing can get a bit tricky because everyone makes use of different measurements in their size guides. We’ve found that you might need to buy 1 size up e.g. if you wear a Cotton On size Small, you will be a LL size Medium. If you wear a Woolies size X-Large, you will be a LL size XX-Large.

Still not sure what size to order? Simply pop Lily an email at lily@lingerieletters.co.za and she’ll gladly assist you.
