Angel Circle Size Guide
The measurements of upper garments are taken right under the sleeve as 1/2 bust measurement and for under garments 20 cm below the waist as 1/2 the hip measurement:
Each of our sizes accommodate two of the konventional German or UK sizes as our cut is loose and comfortable as follows:
Please note that it is better to use the exact bust cm measurements to check your size than the approximate UK and DE sizes, as each brand have slightly different ideas about the grading of these general sizes. Also remember to add space to your body size for movement of the garment.

Design and Sizing
In general Angel Circle uses a very free-flowing style and we like to use copious amounts of fabric. Sometimes this will also be reflected in our prices, as more generous styles need more fabric and thus will be more expensive. In this cost conscious world, this way of thinking is not the norm, but we like to think that there is still a market for our products.
We use a lot of the crincle viscose fabric called AC, as many people like the fact that it is very flexible. When you wash it, it will shrink quite a lot ant this may alarm you. The garment can then be ironed and/or steamed back to its original size. This also means that if the fit is slightly too big on you, you can wash it, disregard the ironing and when you put it on it will accommodate you and get bigger with wear. Or as I have heard one shop advise its customers, if they find the sleeves too big, then refrain from ironing the sleeves after wash.
Color as already mentioned is very important in our collection and we always carry many strong and intense colors both as plain garments and as batiks. The artistic and handmade feel of each garment is essential and we are very proud of our suppliers who use their age-old traditional working methods to create these garments for you. The start of a collection is always the designing and development of new batiks. Then from there everything else develops.
