In order to achieve the elegance of the 1950s, Seacapes are worn off the shoulder in a style reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn and Sophia Lauren.
The top of the arm vent should be a few centimetres off your shoulder, whether you have one tie done up, both ties, or no ties. The Mustique is slightly longer and slightly wider across the shoulders.
How to measure?
To take an ABA measurement, place the tape 8cm below your shoulder and wrap it around your body A to B across your front (then around your back) and back to A.
ABA – approximately 105cm – 115cm
CD – 95cm
ABA – approximately 111cm – 121cm
CD – 103cm
