Pepperberry fitting advice

We’ve answered some of your most common fitting questions here. If you need more help and advice please contact our customer service team.

What sizes do you offer?

We’ve created our clothes in sizes 8 to 18 with three different curvy options for each depending on how much extra room you need for your bust. Choose from Curvy, Really Curvy or Super Curvy.

Do I need to know my bra size to find my Pepperberry clothes size?

You don’t need your bra size to find your Pepperberry clothes size. However we suggest that before finding your Pepperberry clothes size you check you are wearing a well-fitting bra, otherwise the clothes may not fit properly, or flatter your shape as they should. Bravissimo offers free bra fitting advice and we recommend watching their Quick Fit Guide video.

How do Pepperberry sizes work?

As a general guide:

  • Curvy - similar to a standard high street size and is the size you should choose if you rarely have a problem getting clothes to fit your boobs.
  • Really Curvy - likely to be good for you if you tend to go up roughly one dress size in tops and dresses to get a good fit over your boobs.
  • Super Curvy - If you nearly always have to go up a couple of dress sizes to accommodate your boobs.

How do I find my Pepperberry clothes size?

To find your Pepperberry clothes size you simply need to ask yourself two straightforward questions:

  1. What size do you usually wear to fit your bottom half in a skirt?
  2. How many sizes do you usually have to go up to fit your boobs in if you are buying a dress or shirt?

If for example you wear a size 12 on both the top and bottom half try 12 Curvy, if you have to go up one dress size to a 14 on the top half try a 12 Really Curvy and if you usually have to go up two or more sizes on the top half to fit your boobs in, try a 12 Super Curvy.

What if I’m not sure what size I am on the top or bottom half?

You can find your Pepperberry size by measuring your waist and the fullest part of your bust and can then use our 'Find Your Size' fitting guide to find your Pepperberry clothes size.

What should I do if my measurements fall between sizes?

If your measurements fall exactly in the middle of two sizes then it is your choice whether you choose the bigger or smaller size depending how fitted you want the garment to be.

How do I choose between curvy/really curvy or really/super curvy?

Because our jersey styles have more stretch in them they come in a choice of two curviness sizes; Curvy/Really Curvy and Really/Super Curvy.

  • If your Pepperberry clothes size is usually Curvy choose Curvy/Really Curvy in jersey styles.
  • If your Pepperberry clothes size is usually Super Curvy choose Really/Super Curvy in jersey styles.
  • If your Pepperberry size is usually Really Curvy you can choose either curviness size depending on how figure hugging you want the style to be.

What should I do if a garment is too big in the bust?

If a style fits your body but is too big in the bust try a smaller curviness size but keep the dress size the same.

What should I do if a garment is too small in the bust?

If a style fits your body but is too small in the bust try a bigger curviness size but keep the dress size the same.

What should I do if a garment is too big/small in the body?

Because of the unique sizing of Pepperberry clothes, if you go up/down a dress size you need to go down/up a curviness size to get the equivalent volume in the bust.

For example:
If you try on a 12 Really Curvy and find that it fits your bust but is too small on your waist, you should try a 14 Curvy.
If you try on a 12 Really Curvy and find that it fits your bust but is too big on your waist, you should try a 10 Super Curvy.

Why do some styles fit differently to others?

Our styles are made using a variety of fabrics which means they will all fit slightly differently over your boobs - some are more fitted, whereas others stretch and drape. If you can, it is a good idea to try on each style, sometimes you might find that you need to adjust your size slightly depending on the fit and style of the item.

How long are your clothes?

Different styles come in different lengths. You can find the length of garments in centimetres within the individual product detail pages. Our images are just a guide to the actual length, and are based on a woman who is 5’5’’.
