International Women’s Day 2024

International Women's Day (IWD) is an annual event recognised globally to celebrate the achievements and contributions of women throughout history. IWD also aims to raise awareness about gender inequality and advocate for women's rights.

The importance of this day originated during the 20th century, during the labour and women’s rights movement. It aims to highlight the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women, while also shedding light on the persistent challenges they face.


International Women’s Day Theme 2024

This year's theme is 'Inspire Inclusion'.

'When we inspire others to understand and value women's inclusion, we forge a better world. And when women themselves are inspired to be included, there's a sense of belonging, relevance, and empowerment. Collectively, let's forge a more inclusive world for women.' Learn more on the IWD website here.

    There are three body measurement points that you need to know to ensure a great fit – bust, waist, and hips.

    When taking your body measurements, wear the undergarments you normally wear for the most accurate results. Use a flexible tape measure, or a piece of string and ruler, and hold it around each body point so it is comfortably snug.  If the tape is cutting into your flesh, it is too tight.

    To ensure an accurate measurement around your body, keep the measuring tape as level as possible from front to back. We recommend measuring yourself in front of a mirror so you can check this from a side view. If you can, get a friend to help you to ensure the most accurate measurements.

    Bust: Wrap the measuring tape around your back and where the tape meets across the fullest point of your bust is your bust measurement.  

    Waist: Wrap the measuring tape around your natural waist, the slimmest part of your torso, pulling the ends to the front. Where they meet is your waist measurement.

    Hips: Wrap the measuring tape around the widest part of your bottom – this is usually low down towards your thighs. As with your bust and waist measurements, where the tape meets is your hip measurement.

    Length: To measure the length of individual garments against your body it is best to measure down the centre of your back. To do this, start the measuring tape at either the base of your neck for dresses and tops, or at your waist for skirts. Measure down your body to the measurement listed in the garment description. This will show you where the garment comes to on you. When you are measuring for length, remember to make sure you are standing completely upright – it is best to have someone help you with this. Alternatively, compare the measurement with the length of a garment you already have.
