BODY MEASUREMENT TIPS
OUR LENGTH OPTIONS
Measuring yourself will give you a more accurate idea of your size. Once you have determined your body measurement, it’s a good idea to consider your body shape and the styles and cuts to suit both your body measurements and shape.
Find yourself a tape measure for accuracy. Ideally, you should measure when wearing only your undergarments. Do NOT measure yourself wearing jeans, sweats, or other bulky clothing - the results will be inaccurate.
Measurements for product descriptions vary based on style; check the product page to confirm. We recommend choosing the length option based on your height and body type - some taller folks but have longer torsos and shorter legs and vice versa. All bodies are beautiful and different!
BUST - Measure the bust at the fullest part. Measure all around the body (total circumference).
WAIST - Measure around the natural waistline – the narrowest part of your waist – keeping the tape comfortably loose. The size of your waist, hips and bust may give you an idea of your body shape. An Hourglass body shape for instance, will have a small waist and bigger bust and hips.
HIPS - Measure around the fullest part of the hips. This is different for everyone; if you are unsure, take several measurements in this region and use the biggest measurement.
INSIDE LEG - Run the tape measure from the top of the inside leg down to the ankle bone to determine your legs’ length.
HIGH HIP - Measure around the fullest part, about 3 - 4" below the waist. This is helpful when fitting a slim skirt or pants (to get an accurate idea of the shape of the hip, or the belly).
FRONT WAIST LENGTH - Start at the shoulder (right next to the base of the neck), and measure to the waist, measuring over the fullest part of the bust.
BACK WAIST LENGTH - Measure from the base of the neck (in the center, not the side), to the center of the waistline.
ARM LENGTH - Measure from the top of the arm (find the bone at the shoulder/top of arm) to the wrist (find the bone at the side of the wrist),
WITH THE ELBOW BENT - It's important to keep the elbow bent to allow for movement when you make a sleeve.

Hand of Blessings (mixed media on barn board)
I have always loved Indian art, the vibrant colours and spiritual symbols. As well as my own meditation practice I am inspired by spiritual symbols from around the world. My travels include India, the Middle East, Thailand, Egypt, China and Europe.
Hand of Blessings incorporates a Hamsa Hand (Eye of Fatima) which originates in Egypt and is used to ward off negativity, the face of a cherub which symbolizes purity and innocence, and a rose with petals showering blessings as a symbol of love respect and honour in Hinduism.
Painting on barn board was inspired by the beautiful Ontario countryside. Taken back in time i wanted to experiment painting on barn board to give a vintage feeling to the art.
This piece is acrylic paint on 100 year old authentic barn board with accents of gold leaf paint, and stencilled with flowers to give it a whimsical feeling.
The barn board has been cut and mounted on wood slats to make it sturdy and easy to hang. The painting can be hung indoors or outdoors in a garden.
Prints and cards can also be purchased. See link below.
The size is 29"x34" and weighs about 5.5 Kg.

All items are carefully inspected before being shipped. If you ordered the wrong size or are not happy with your purchase, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to initiate the exchange process. Exchanges require the customer to pay shipping fees to us and back to them. We will make it our priority to fix any problem associated with your order promptly.
Once the Art with Heart team has authorized your return, you will be responsible for paying for the shipping costs associated with returning your purchase.
Depending on where you live, the time it may take for your exchanged product to reach you may vary.
As safe delivery to you is our responsibility, in the same way sending back pieces safely to us is your responsibility. When shipping an item over $75, we suggest using a trackable shipping service or purchasing shipping insurance. We also recommend you keep the postal receipt until delivery is confirmed.
- Always be sure to report your problem as soon as possible after receiving the item in question.
- Always report any problems associated with a single order/package delivery at the same time. Be as specific as possible when describing the problem, as all returned items are examined for defects/variations.
- Please return within allotted days (depending on region) of confirmation from our end and with original packing & in original condition (used or altered items will not be accepted). Please ensure to include a copy of the invoice you received.
- Please do not send your purchase back to us UNTIL it has been verified with us, and no credit or replacement shall be given on such items.
If your tracking link shows that your package has been delivered, but you can’t find it. Do the following:
- Open your shipping confirmation and verify your shipping address
- Look for a notice from the post office of an attempted delivery
- Ask members of your household, neighbours or building management if someone else accepted your delivery
- Look around your delivery location for the package
- In rare cases, wait 36 hours; some parcels may show as being delivered 36 hours before arrival.
- Lastly, notify us so we can find out what happened.
As much as we hope for a positive outcome, sometimes a package will go missing. An inquiry will be launched in such a circumstance, and an agent from our customer service department will be in constant contact until the issue is resolved. Rest knowing that we are just as worried and aggravated in situations like these and will not rest until the issue is resolved.
If a package is returned to us, we will launch an inquiry into the matter and deal with it accordingly.
When a package is returned to us, we sometimes have to pay a courier fee, inconveniencing us. Then:
- If the customer wishes to be reshipped their order, they will be charged the return courier fee (if we were charged one, which is not always the case) and new shipping charges(in their chosen method). In this case, a customer service representative will guide you through the process of replacing your order.
- If the customer no longer wishes to be reshipped their order, they will be refunded for their order minus the return courier fee(if charged) and shipping charges. In this case, a customer service representative will process your refund, and you will be notified of your refund via email.
Color & Description Disclaimer
The descriptions of the products, product specifications and images are only approximate values.
We make every effort to ensure that product colours/finishes/textures are represented accurately. There may be minor variations in the shade of the colour of the actual product because of the differences in calibration of the display output due to lighting, digital photography, colour settings and capabilities of monitors/devices etc.
Therefore colour reproduction on the internet is limited by technology in that it is not always precise. Please refer to product descriptions, images or email email@example.com to avoid misunderstandings and confirm colour/shade accuracy.
Note: Just because some products have the same colour name, this does not mean they are the same colour. Also, do not misinterpret the colour’s name to be what you may think it should be. i.e., just because a colour may be named “Tan” does not mean it will necessarily look like what most people would consider the Tan colour to be; we all have our variation/interpretation of what we think “Tan” should be. Please do not order using colour names as your guide; always read the description or reference the multiple images.
A customer placing an order through the website should do so while keeping in mind that this minor variation in colour seen on a computer/tablet/mobile/TV screen against the actual colour of the product received can happen.
- Red, maroon and orange colours have a higher tendency to reflect a different shade than other colours. Though imaging technology has advanced, slight colour variations are often challenging to convey digitally.
Often, green and blue shades may overlap and the colours off-white, white and cream.
- Sea Green colours may appear Aqua blue and vice versa.
**package refused: We take great care in preparing and shipping out your package. Should the situation arise where you refuse our parcel and abandoned it, please email us immediately. We then have the opportunity to arrive at a resolution with the carrier company. All costs associated with shipping your package, resolution fees and restocking fees will be deducted before a refund is issued.
It would help if you let us know you no longer want the package before it is delivered. Or accept the parcel so we can arrange for it to be shipped back to us. This is in both parties' best interest since it will cost less when issuing the customer a refund.
