Size chart - Short Sleeve Western Shirt

Short Sleeve Western Shirt

Size guide

Welcome to the SÜK Size Guide. We’re hoping to make online shopping even easier by providing all our insider info about sizing and fit.

We offer a body measurement chart and a garment measurement size chart. Our sizes follow Australian numerical sizing. There is no standardised size system for clothing, so there can be variation between brands and clothing labels. This is also why we don’t provide a size conversion, as there’s no perfect way to convert sizes.

Western Shirt Fit Guide

Designed to be generous in the bust, with a femme silhouette. Stick with your normal size for a standard fit. Size up if you'd like it looser, or size down for a firm fit. 

Body Measurements

All measurements are in centimetres.

Please use this as a general guide, if you find yourself between sizes, we suggest sizing down.

Garment Measurements

All measurements are in centimetres.

These measurements are taken from the flattened physical garment, and then doubled to achieve an accurate measurement. Each chart is specific to each individual style. There is a variation of 1-2cm per garment, as our styles are prewashed and preshrunk before we send them to you.

You can use garment measurements in two ways:

  1. Measure an existing comfy item of clothing and compare it to our chart.
  2. Measure your body, add approx 3-5cm across all measurements except your waist to allow for the garment to sit comfortably on your body, and compare to our chart.

Measuring Tip

If you can, measure yourself in your undies. You should hold the measuring tape firm (but not digging in) to your body, with no twists or clothing in the way.

 

 


Follow these steps

Separate Colours

Sort your cotton clothes by colour to prevent dye transfer. Wash whites, lights, and darks separately. 

Cold Water 

Use cold water for washing to preserve colour and prevent shrinkage. Hot water can cause cotton to fade and lose its shape. 

Gentle Cycle 

Opt for a gentle cycle on your washing machine. This minimizes stress on the fabric, maintaining its integrity. 

Mild Detergent 

Use a mild detergent to avoid harsh chemicals that can damage cotton fibers. Avoid using detergents and powders that contain enzymes as these may affect the integrity of the metal hardware. Follow the recommended amount for your load size. 

Avoid Overloading 

Don’t overload the washing machine. This ensures proper cleaning and prevents excessive friction between garments.

Skip the Bleach

Avoid using bleach as it can weaken cotton fibers and lead to discoloration. Choose oxygen bleach if necessary for whites.

Inside Out

Turn your cotton clothes inside out before washing. This helps preserve colours and prevents surface abrasion.

Air-Dry or Low Heat

Air-dry your cotton clothes if possible. If using a dryer, choose a low heat setting to prevent shrinkage and maintain fabric quality.

Prompt Removal

Remove clothes promptly after washing to prevent wrinkles and maintain the garment's shape.

By following these simple steps, you can keep your cotton clothing looking fresh and vibrant for a longer period.*
