Sizes and fits

If you don’t know what size you are, please have a look at our size guide here.
Gudrun’s thoughts about fits
Since we are mainly an online and catalogue brand, our view on fit, colours and sizes are based on how our customers shop from an image and a text. Therefore, we try to describe all info in our product images and texts that you need to know as a customer.
We make uncomplicated garments that suit all types of women around the globe. But since we are also a Swedish company, we see the importance of the Scandinavian feel in our products. We are a tall nation and therefore make our dresses and skirts cut to a generous length. The garments are generally loose-fitting – which makes shopping easier than if the item is figure hugging.
How does our fit translate?
We have four different types of tailoring.
The garment is close fitting, with a maximum of 6 cm room for movement around the bust and maximum 3 cm around the hips.
The garment has 7-16 cm room for movement around the bust and 4-12 cm around the hips.
A free and easy fit with at least 17 cm room for movement around the bust and 13 cm or more around the hips.
Extra generous fit
Lots of room for movement with 31 cm or more around the bust.
The choice of material also influences the amount of movement allowed by a garment. Knits and jersey-knits have more give in them than woven, less stretchy materials. That's why our weaves are often more generously tailored. For you to be as happy as possible with your purchases, we recommend that you spend a few moments taking your measurements and comparing them with our size chart that can be found here.
What are body measurements and garment measurements?
Body measurements are measurements taken from the body with a measuring tape. We have bust width, waist width, hip width, lengths for legs and arms.
Garment measurements tell you the length and width of the garment. You can find the garment measurements of each item on its product page.
Bonus and gift vouchers
How can I see if I have received a bonus voucher?
Customers who have made purchases during one calendar year totalling a value of £400 or more will receive a bonus voucher within the first months of the following year. You can see if you have received a bonus voucher when you log in and look under the ‘’My Bonus’’ tab on My pages. The bonus is valid throughout the rest of the year it’s been issued, it can be used both in stores and online.
How do I use my bonus voucher?
When you are logged in on our website you can use your bonus voucher under "Payment options" in the checkout. The voucher is available to use until the end of the year it is issued and can only be used once.
How do I use my gift card?
If you shop online, you can register the gift card at the checkout. Choose payment option ‘’Gift card’’, fill in the ID number on the card or the receipt and click ‘’Redeem gift voucher”. The order will be adjusted according to the amount on the gift card.
If you order your items via email or telephone, please contact our customer service to use your gift card or voucher. You can reach them here.
If the value of the gift card is higher than the order value, the gift card’s value is reduced after the purchase. You can then use the remaining amount on the gift card for another purchase.
Stock and prices
What does the “Take-2-price” mean?
If an item has a take-2-price it means that you can buy the item for a lower rate if you buy two. You don’t need to buy two of the same item, you can combine one with other take-2 items.
Why is one of my items labeled "backordered"?
If one or more of the items in your order is marked as backordered, it means that the item is currently sold out. It is still possible to order a backordered item. If you do, we will send you the item as soon as it comes back in stock. If the item goes out of stock permanently, you will receive a message regarding this and be refunded for the item that could not be delivered.
