Fit-guidelines

We’ve developed these guidelines to direct you toward the best fit. Each style was designed with the fabrication and general style cues in mind. Chance garments are generally a “classic fit,” with only the Boatneck and 3/4 Henley running a bit slender.

STRIPES & SOLIDS (Knits)

Boatneck (Striped and Solid) and 3/4 Henley

These styles are made of a featherweight Pima cotton, which drapes beautifully. The body of each style is trim, however, so we highly recommend stepping up one size from the size you normally select. Please note the fabric gives slightly with wear, so if the shirt feels a bit fitted at first, keep it on a minute or two to get a sense of true fit. Additional sizes will be added to these styles in the future.

  • Small = Size 2
  • Medium = Size 4-6
  • Large = Size 8-10

Classic Striped T-shirt (Short and Long Sleeves) and Classic Striped Tank

We chose a dense ribbed cotton for these three styles. The fabric is very soft to the touch, laying nicely against the skin and flattering the figure without being overly fitted. The sleeve length on the long-sleeved style falls just below the wrist. The tank top straps have been thoughtfully placed so that lingerie straps are covered on nearly all body types. The cuts are classic and true to size.

  • Small = Size 2-4
  • Medium = Size 6-8
  • Large = Size 10-12

Scoop Neck Dress, Tank Dress, Polo Dress

The fabric of these three styles is a wonderful, classic cotton jersey. It’s the ideal weight for dress styles as it skims the body and is opaque to ensure appropriate coverage. These styles are classic cuts, so we recommend selecting the size you normally wear. Please note that the tank dress is cut more generously throught the bust and arm hole than other styles.

  • Small = Size 2-4
  • Medium = Size 6-8
  • Large = Size 10-12

  • Lengths for these three styles are as follows:
  • Scoop Neck Dress (length, top of shoulder to bottom hem)
  • Tank Dress (length, top of shoulder to bottom hem)
  • Polo Dress (length, top of shoulder to bottom hem)

Boy Shorts and Pool Shorts

These bottoms are perfect for lounging. The boy shorts offer comfortable coverage in the rear and are perfect under a dress, or worn post-shower or as pajamas. The pool shorts are easy and have the benefit of a drawstring. These styles are cut true to size, but note that there isn’t a significant shift in dimension from size-to-size, so if you prefer a loose fit, particularly in the pool short, select one size up from your typical size.

  • Small = Size 2
  • Medium = Size 4-6
  • Large = Size 8-10

Ribbed Solid Knits (Pixie Tee and Classic Tank)

We think of our Pixie Tee as the perfect classic t-shirt. The ribbed cotton fabric is soft and skims the body to flattering effect. It has a simple, clean crew neckline and sleeves that hit in just the right spot. It’s feminine but not too sweet. In other words, perfect. (We think.) The fit is classic, so best to select the size you most often wear. The Classic Tank in this ribbed fabric is also feminine, and in fact, cut a bit deeper in the front (making it necessary to pair this with a more feminine brassiere).

  • Small = Size 2-4
  • Medium = Size 6-8
  • Large = Size 10-12

OTHER CLOTHING (Wovens)

Classic Button Down Shirt and Shirtdress

These styles both have a classic fit, made just a touch more feminine by the scalloped front hem and darts in the back. We recommend selecting the size you most often wear. Please note, however, that if your bust measurements are ample, these styles may be a bit snug. Additional sizes will be added to future collections.

  • Small = Size 2-4
  • Medium = Size 6-8
  • Large = Size 10

  • Length measurements are as follows:
  • Classic Button Down Shirt (length, top of shoulder to bottom hem)
  • Classic Button Down Shirtdress (length, top of shoulder to bottom hem)

Button-Front Tunic

This tunic has classic proportions, so selecting the size you normally wear will result in the best fit. Due to the horizontal placket at the center, this isn’t an ideal style if your chest measurement is 36” or more.

  • Small = Size 2
  • Medium = Size 4-6
  • Large = Size 8-10

Pleated Swing Dress

This is a versatile style for all body types. It has a feminine appeal, but isn’t too revealing. Both the pleated front and A-line shape make for a versatile, comfortable fit. We suggest selecting the size you normally wear. Do keep in mind the length, however. It’s not short, but you’ll want to double check that the following dimensions suit your scale.

  • Small = Size 2-4
  • Medium = Size 6-8
  • Large = Size 10

Length, top of shoulder to bottom hem

Romper

The Chance romper is a playful style and has a classic cut, so your normal size you will work well in terms of fit. That said, the challenging aspect of any romper is the proportion from top of shoulder to top of rise. This style will work well if you have a short or average torso length. If you have a long torso, you may find it uncomfortable in the length. The shorts offer nice coverage in the rear, but do of course, reveal a fair amount of leg.

  • Small = Size 2
  • Medium = Size 4-6
  • Large = Size 8-10

Beach Shorts

These versatile shorts run true to size and are ideal for everyday summertime or vacation wear. They sit just below the waist and cover the rear nicely. Discreet side pockets make them a simple go-to standard.

  • Small = Size 2-4
  • Medium = Size 6-8
  • Large = Size 10
