Mastering Online Dress Shopping in Singapore: Finding the Perfect Fit

Somewhere between adding to cart and receiving your item, sizing can get lost in translation when online shopping. Here at Rock Daisy, we want you to get it right the first time. Here are some simple tricks to finding the right fit when online dress shopping in Singapore. From reading reviews to knowing your measurements, this guide will help you master the art of online dress shopping and avoid the dreaded fit disappointment.

How to Score the Perfect Fit When Online Shopping

Online dress shopping offers unparalleled convenience, but it can be daunting when you can’t try on the clothes beforehand. To ensure you get the right fit every time, follow these tips.

Know Your Measurements

Take accurate measurements of your bust, waist, hips, and inseams. Most online stores provide detailed size charts, so having your measurements on hand will help you choose the right size. Some brands also list the model's height and size for reference.

Check the Size Chart

Don’t rely solely on your usual size. Size charts and patterns vary based on location and brand. Variations include Asian sizing which runs smaller, European which runs larger and Global sizing which takes the average. It’s good to know where your brand is from, so you can determine which pattern sizing they use. Specific measurements provided by the retailer are always the best way to get the closest fit.

Understand the Properties of Different Fabrics

The fabric and cut of a dress also affect how it fits. Stretchy or knit fabrics tend to hug curves, while stiffer woven fabrics have less give. An empire waist, A-line skirt or wrap style is more forgiving, as it skims over problem areas. A body-con dress shows every lump and bump, so get the size spot on!

Check Out Brand Socials

For a better look at how our pieces fit and move, head over to the brand’s Instagram feed and tagged images. There, you will find real customers showcasing garments on different body types, capturing their natural sway in motion and how they hug the body in various poses. This will give you a better idea of how the pieces look when worn to get a closer fit.

How Rock Daisy’s Apparel is Designed for Women’s Silhouettes

At Rock Daisy, we understand the importance of a perfect fit. That’s why our apparel is thoughtfully designed with women’s silhouettes in mind. While women’s utility clothing is known for a more boxy fit, our pieces bring you the best of both comfort and silhouette. Here’s how we ensure each piece fits like a dream.

Dropped Shoulders for Comfort

You’ll find dropped shoulders in select Rock Daisy designs to allow for ease of movement. The dropped shoulder seam sits slightly off the natural shoulder line, giving you a relaxed, comfortable fit that won’t feel constricting. This small design element makes a big difference if you’re moving around in the piece all day.

Hidden Darts in Sleeveless Dress for Curvature

Our Amelie Sleeveless Dress has hidden darts in the neck and bust, enhancing the natural curves of the upper bodice, while giving roomy comfort from the waist down. They are sewn and pressed neatly to avoid bulky fabric. The Amelie dress is best seen in motion, with the seam lines elegantly mirroring the natural movement of the body.

Topstitching for Reinforcement

To ensure durability and longevity, our women’s utility mini skirts and cargo pants are reinforced with topstitching. This meticulous stitching technique not only enhances the structural integrity of the garments but also helps them maintain their shape over time. Expect our pieces to withstand everyday wear and tear, allowing you to enjoy them for years to come.

French and Flat-Felled Seams for Strength

We use French and flat-felled seams for extra strength on the sides of our pieces, providing added durability and a clean silhouette. These seams put away protruding threads by concealing the raw edges within a fold. Not only is it comfortable against the skin, but it also helps the pieces keep their strength and last longer.

Bias-Binding for Finishing

At Rock Daisy, we believe that every detail matters, even the ones you can't see. That's why all our bottoms feature bias binding to protect raw seams, ensuring a clean and polished finish that lasts. Not only does this meticulous finishing technique prevent fraying, but it also adds durability to our garments, so they remain your go-to pieces for years to come. As beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside, our bottoms are designed to withstand the test of time, maintaining their integrity with every wash and wear.

Patterns Designed for Asian Women

Our wisdom in garment construction comes with working with a Japanese-trained patternmaker with over 2 decades of experience. Every piece is designed to accommodate the silhouette of Asian women while making accommodations for movement.
