When it comes to women’s fitted dress shirts, one size does not fit all and finding the right one for your shape and size can be a tricky process. There are several factors to consider when purchasing a new shirt.
But while colour, pattern and fabric are important, it is the fit of the shirt which will ultimately determine how you will look and feel in your new shirt.
Proper fit is the most striking and essential characteristic of all women’s fitted dress shirts. A well-fitting shirt compliments your physique in all the right places. It follows your silhouette and brings out the best in you.
Regardless of your body shape, a tailored, closer fitting shirt is always the most flattering option – a shirt with large folds in it will only amplify the figure.
Women have different body shapes, and these body shapes need differently tailored shirts. At Ella Hopfeldt it is our aim to offer women’s fitted dress shirts for ladies of all shapes and sizes.
Our proprietary fit system is based on unique sizing where body shape AND size make up each of our four fits. All women’s fitted dress shirts that we offer come in thirty-six different options: four shapes and nine sizes.
This makes it possible to provide the majority of women a much better product and a much better experience.
At Ella Hopfeldt we offer four carefully designed shirt fits to help every woman find an ideal match for their body type. We have named our shirt fits after European countries: ITALIAN fit, GERMAN fit, FRENCH fit and SPANISH fit. All four fits are specifically tailored to reflect different body shapes.
ITALIAN FIT women’s fitted dress shirts are long length shirts for average height and taller women (171–184 cm / 5’7”–6’0”).
Figure-wise the shirts are perfect for:
GERMAN FIT women’s fitted dress shirts are long length shirts for average height and taller women (171–184 cm / 5’7”–6’0”). Compared to the Italian fit, the German fit shirts have more room for shoulders and bust and a well-defined waistline.
FRENCH FIT women’s fitted dress shirts are long length shirts for average height and shorter women (155–170 cm / 5’1”–5’7”). In general, the fit is identical to the Italian fit, except for the overall length and the length of the sleeves.
SPANISH FIT women’s fitted dress shirts are long length shirts for average height and shorter women (155–170 cm / 5’1”–5’7”). Compared to the French fit, the Spanish fit shirts have more room for shoulders and bust and a well-defined waistline.
You can also use our simple quiz to find your perfect fit. The quiz will guide you through easy to answer questions and will help you find the right fit for your shape in minutes.
Now that you know your fit, it’s time to determine your size. Sizing varies widely by brand and style. Which is why you should ditch your preconceived sizing notions.
To determine your size for Ella Hopfeldt women’s fitted dress shirts you need to compare your (1) bust, (2) waist and (3) hips measurements to our size charts. Remember, sizing varies by brands and your size in a tailored dress shirt might not be the one you’re used to wearing.
It is not uncommon to need one to two sizes larger in a fitted shirt.
We recommend that you choose your size based on your specific measurements and the size chart. Choose the size that best fits all of your measurements, but most importantly your largest one.
