Sizing & Washing
At Limn we want the site to be easy to browse and understandable, that includes sizing. All products sold by Limn (excl. Hats & Accessories) will feature their own individual sizing chart on their individual product page.
We understand how frustrating it is to have to buy multiple sizes in items, so we give you these simple tips to ensuring you get the best fit!
1. Workout your main problem when buying clothes, Are the arms too short? Chest area too tight or too baggy?
2. Whatever your frequent problem is that is your main focal point of measurement, go get 1 to 3 of your favourite fitting garments, and measure them in centimetres. Lay them flat or hang them up, just make sure the measurement is accurate.
Pit to pit equals the bust. (measurement should be doubled as if, gone around the chest & back)
3. Write them down! not all clothing sites will use individual product sizing but for the few that do, here at Limn you'll never have to measure your favourite garment again! You've stored the measurements and are now ready for your next purchase.
4. Compare the measurements to our size chart for the product. They can be 2-3 Cm's out roughly but you should be able to gage from our measurements how the product will fit on you. Get something as close to your size as possible, if in doubt the next bracket UP in sizing is usually the best.
5. Enjoy your fitting garments!
Trousers, Sweatpants and Shorts
Following the same steps as before we now want to measure the length of our lower half.
The two main measurements on our site are labelled "Length" & "Waist".
1. Lay a pair of your favourite pants on the floor, or with them hanging straight.
2. Take a measuring tape and measure the whole length this is measured in centimetres.
3. Take the waist measurement, this is a standard measurement across most clothing stores. Your waist can be measured from one side to the other and doubled or measured the whole way around, this is measured in inches.
4. Once you have your measurements compare them to the Length and waist of our product sizes and your good to go!
5. We recommend always going a size up if you are debating between two sizes. The pant is always better with a few extra Centimetre's than running too short.
At Limn we put high quality fabric and garments to the test, that doesn't mean our garments are not subject to shrinking or fading if not taking care of correctly.
Like most clothes a hand wash is preferred, but we understand thats not always the best for time keeping. So to keep your clothes in optimal condition for as long as possible. Turn the garments inside out, pop them in the washing machine and put it on an appropriate 30 degree wash.

A Subtle drying method is highly recommended or you run the risk of shrinking your product. Most subtle drying methods are based around room-temperature. Leaving your clothes on a drying rack or left to hang is most desirable. If time is of the essence and a drying / heater is your method of choice, please bear in mind to keep the heating to a low temperature. The hotter the heat the more likely the product is to shrink as with any tumble dried item of clothing.
Tips for drying
1. Dry your clothes on the lowest heat setting possible.
2. Consider investing in a Clothes drying rack (uses room-temperature air) to dry your wool and all-cotton garments.
3. Read, and follow, the care instructions on your garments’ labels.
4. Avoid drying clothes multiple times. One time should do the trick.
5. You can air-dry clothes by hanging them from the shower rod in your bathroom.
6. When a load of clothes are finished drying, remove it from the unit immediately.
7. Some dryers have a “tumble” setting which only uses motion to dry clothes. Use this setting when drying delicate clothes that would otherwise shrink.
