Kaftan Fit Guide

Kaftan Life's fit guide caters to a variety of sizes and body types

Designed to Flatter and Feel Good

We design our kaftans to flatter a range of sizes and body types. All our kaftans are Adult One Size and feature an adjustable drawstring to help you achieve the silhouette that's perfect for you. This takes the guesswork out of finding your size or, for that matter, trying to size a friend or family member when you're shopping for others.

 


Short Kaftans

  • Sizing: Adjustable to fit dress sizes 00 - 16 (refer to the sizing chart below for detailed body measures)
  • Length: 35 in / 90 cm (mid-thigh to knee length for most women)
  • Adjustable Waist: up to 50 in / 128 cm


      Long Kaftans

      • Sizing: Adjustable to fit dress sizes 00 - 18 (refer to the sizing chart below for detailed body measures)
      • Length: 51 in / 130 cm (lower calf to ankle length for most women)
      • Adjustable Waist: up to 50 in / 128 cm


        How to Measure Yourself

        We recommend using a cloth measuring tape (like the one in the photo at the top of the page!). They can usually be found in standard sewing kits. If you don't have a cloth measuring tape, you can use a piece of yarn, twine, or string and compare it to a yardstick.

        It is best to take measurements in your undergarments. Measuring over other clothing will give you an inaccurate measurement.

        • Bust - For the most accurate measurement, wear the bra that you plan on wearing with your kaftan (or no bra if you don't plan on wearing one at all!). Measure around the fullest part of your chest, making sure that your arms are down by your sides and that the measuring tape is straight across your back (it's easiest to do this in front of a mirror).
        • Waist - Measure around your waist at the smallest point. Make sure that the measuring tape stays level across your back.
        • Hips - Stand up straight with your feet together. Measure around the fullest part of your hips.
