All Lili Marleena -products are one size. This means that there are no sizes and all products fit a variety of different sized people. I have sold the same sized dress to someone who is 160 cm and size XS, but also to someone who is size XL and 180 cm. This might sound odd, but it actually does work.
My point is not to make clothes for everyone, but for a large majority of people. The size promise is, that worn correctly with a belt, all products fit women sized XS-XL. For someone shorter/smaller in size, the dresses are obviously longer and have more extra fabric, and for someone taller/bigger the length of the sleeves and hem fall a bit shorter… but all the same they do look good on both sizes. The simple way to make sure all products fit, is by tying them on with a belt.
The point is not only to make products that fit everyone, but most importantly that they fit you from year to year. There is nothing more frustrating than having a bunch of pretty dresses in your wardrobe that no longer fit… you just keep them in your closet in case one day (magically) they fit again! Lucky you if this magic does happen.
When you buy a Lili Marleena -product, you can be sure that your garment won’t feel too tight or too loose even though your body changed a little bit. It’s ok to change, and our clothes should be able to adjust to that. This is one aspect of the brand’s sustainability too – you don’t need to give up your garment because it’s too small or too big!
ps. And yes, I’m way too aware that I have too few pictures of XL-sized people! If you have a Lili Marleena -garment in your closet, please send me your pictures wearing them. I love nothing more than receiving and posting them on my feed.
