Size Guide

One of the things we're most proud of here at PQ Collection is our ability to create clothing that caters to a wide variety of body types and sizes. Getting the right fit can be challenging and daunting when ordering online, so we try to make it as easy as possible for you. The size guide will vary depending on the style, so please refer to the product description for specific measurements. Our sizing recommendations refer to Australian sizing and we do our best to provide the bust, length and sleeve opening measurements so you can ensure you get the perfect fit.
