AlibiOnline Size Chart

Fit: The photos and fit-descriptions (e.g. fitted or tube as opposed to loose or oversized etc.) are a good indication of how an item will fit.

What Size am I? The sizes of the labels on this website are generally similar – for example, if you are usually a size 12 in Wish then you would usually be a size 12 in Lee. However, as there are no national standard sizes, you may take a different size in the labels on this website as compared to some labels you have in your wardrobe. Therefore, please use the size chart below to determine your size for items displayed on this website.

US Sizes: Regarding US sizing, please keep in mind that Australian sizing is at least 2 sizes smaller than US sizing. This means that you need to go at least two sizes UP from your normal size:
If you are a US size 4, you'll need to get a size 8 to 10
If you are a US size 6, you'll need to get a size 10 to 12
If you are a US size 8, you'll need to get a size 12 to 14 etc.
To be absolutely sure, please refer to the size chart above.

How to Measure:
Bust - Measure across your shoulder blades and across the fullest part of your bust, while breathing in and keeping the measuring tape parallel to the floor. For most accurate results, please measure while in your underwear.
Waist - Measure around your relaxed waist. Keep one finger between the measuring tape and your body. For most accurate results, please measure while in your underwear.
Hip - Measure around your hips or your bottom, whichever is the fuller, while standing with your legs together and keeping the measuring tape parallel to the floor. For most accurate results, please measure while in your underwear.
Tall women - If you are above 5'8 (173 cm), you may need to allow for your height by ordering one size up from your size determined by the size chart.

Accessories
Some items are shown with accessories such as belts, bags or jewellery. This is for styling & how-to wear suggestions only. Any accessories are not included in the price of the item, but may be purchased separately if available. Please check the relevant section or, if it cannot be found, please email us with a detailed request.

POSTAGE
We refund combined shipping charges fro multiple purchases.
We use only trackable and secure delivery methods requiring a signature upon delivery. We do not use standard post or standard Express Post as neither require a signature and are consequently not secure.

CARING FOR CLOTHES & ACCESSORIES
Clothes
Cotton, Rayon, Spandex, Polyester, Acrylic, Wool -  To ensure the longevity of your clothes, we generally recommend cold hand wash while turning the clothes inside out and using gentle cleaning products (e.g. use wool wash, do not use bleaching agents). 
Rather than tumble drying, your garment will live longer if you line-dry it in the shade. Knitted clothes are best dried flat. 
Denim -  For denim, we recommend cool gentle machine-wash and line-drying, especially if it's stretch denim. To protect your denim's colour, avoid bleaching agents, and dry it in the shade. 
Silk - Dry cleaning is recommended. 
Beaded, Embroidered, and Jeweled Clothes - are very delicate and need special care, so please be extra gentle even when hand washing. 
Accessories
Any jewellery (not just ours) will stay beautiful if you store it covered, for example in a jewellery box or pouch, or even a self-seal plastic bag. The buckles and metal trims of any bags or belts (not just ours) will stay beautiful if you store your belts and bags inside your wardrobe. Open air, direct sunlight, humidity, and different metals touching, will ruin any jewellery. 

Help
If you have any questions regarding care or storage of your clothes or accessories, please email us at ebay@alibionline.com.au and we'll do our best to help.
