The Rita Phil definition of a Perfect Fit is whatever makes you feel the most confident about your body. Our goal is to create a custom tailored fit that will enhance your best features to your preference, provide comfortable all-day wear, and high quality materials that'll last the test of time.
We've all been shopping through the sizing system since the beginning of retail fashion and it's mostly been fine. We've come to accept that sometimes the size will fit and sometimes it won't because there aren't really any other options. Most women don't even understand why that's the case and actually blame themselves for not fitting into clothes. The real reason is that retail sizes are generally made to fit one body type and if you aren't that shape it'll fit but it won't be a perfect fit. The typical retail size body shape is a ruler shape which means if you are any other shape such as pear, hourglass, or apple then retail sizes will only "kind of" it.
Andrea has a pear shape body which means her waist is much smaller than her hips. Her waist is a size 4 and her hips are a size 12. Retail store sizes fit her hips but leave a large gap at the waistband making the skirt sit lower on her toro. With a custom tailored fit we are able to create a slimmer silhouette by simply enhancing her natural waist with a waistband that actually fits her. We are also able to create a more tapered fit to enhance your curvy body shape.
At Rita Phil, each customer receives their own detailed analysis of how their skirt will be made to enhance their shape. The analysis includes not only their measurements but their proportions, fit and length preference, and fabric selection. Our team will walk you through the process of taking your measurements, provide feedback on any potential errors, and suggest length and style change if we don't think it'll work with your body shape. Once all your information and preferences are finalized it is entered into our proprietary algorithm system to create your custom pattern. Then your pattern is crossed- referenced with prior customers who have the same body shape and measurements as you and have confirmed their perfect fit to ensure that before we even begin production we are able to confidently determine your skirt will fit you.
All skirts are custom tailored to sit at your natural waist (the smallest part of your torso). The higher waist band pulls attention to a narrower part of your body instantly creating a leaner silhouette. Personalized front darts create the tummy minimizing feature. These darts add extra fabric to the front of the skirt, reducing the pulling to de-emphasize your mid-section. The individualized curvature enables the skirt to highlight your body shape without causing tension. The personalized tapering level enables you to select how much the skirt cuts into your lower half to create your preferred silhouette.
Our Perfect Fit Guarantee promises that your skirt will fit your body perfectly. If you are not happy with your custom skirt for any reason, you have 3 options:

“I’m 5’10 with wide hips and a smaller than average waist, and struggled with finding an even adequately fitting skirt for the longest time. Whatever fit my hips would not fit my waist, and vice versa — not to mention length issues. When I saw an ad for Rita Phil I knew I had to give it a try, and it was an incredible experience. I feel the product and experience was worth every penny. Thank you to the wonderful team at Rita Phil for caring for all your customers on such a personal level!”
“I am thick waisted and can never get skirts to fit in the hips and struggle to find the length I need. I was intrigued with the custom skirt idea. The Rita Phil customer service team answered my many questions. I took a chance, ordered the black Lillian skirt and was so glad I did. I now also have the Kimberly skirt and am about to order a third skirt.”
“I love wearing my skirt to work. The quality of the skirt’s fabric and stitching is impeccable. It feels so luxurious. I am blown away by how great my skirt feels and fits. The fit is perfect. I’m very petite, so even when I buy things that are categorized as “petite” they are usually still too long. I loved that I was able to tell the tailor to make it to my preferred length. I felt like I had a personal tailor walking me through the process of making my skirt.”
