Colors, Sizing & Garment Care.
Juniperous dyes are made with ethichally cultivated and wild-harvested botanicals. All garments are dyed after being sewn in small-batches. Colors may vary depending on water sources and the geological and environmental conditions the plants were living in prior to harvest. Variations in texture appearance and color depth are part of the beauty of natural dyes and are not flaws in the garment or dyes.
Use the chart below to determine which size to order.
The chart shows the dress sizes that each lettered size fits best.
Fit and Measuring
If you want your garment to fit more snugly than pictured, order the size to the left of your dress size.
For example, if you are a size 2 and you want the garment to be tighter than pictured, order an XS, if you want the garment to fit as pictured order a size S .
Measure yourself and use the numbers table on the chart to determine which size is right for you, each measurement is listed in both inches (left) and cm (right).
Keep in mind that these garments do not contain any spandex or synthetic fibers. They are 100% hemp and organic cotton fibers and are woven to have a fair amount of stretch. Your garment will stretch to fit your body and loosen slightly over multiple wares without washing. The fabric will bounce back to it's original form upon washing but will not shrink beyond it's original size as long as care instructions are followed.
When measuring yourself follow these instructions for the best fit.
Measure the fullest part of your bust around the largest part of your breasts and rib cage.
Measure the smallest part of your waist near your belly button.
Measure the fullest part of your bottom and hips around the largest part of your butt and pelvis.

Juniperous Garments are naturally dyed using botanical dye sources. Fibers which are botanically dyed are naturally sensitive and delicate, taking care of them properly is very important to ensure a long life for your garment. Follow the instructions below to ensure safe colors, soft wearability, and shape recovery.
Wash in cool water using bio-degradable detergent, like Ecos.
Tumble dry on a low setting, to soften your garment and return it to it's original state.
Try to address a stain right when it occurs. Blot as much of the stain out of the fiber as possible. DO NOT SCRUB the fibers, the color may come out with the stain or fade significantly if you do. If you are able, rinse the stain immediately using warm water. Hot water can be used in this instance but again do not scrub the fibers. If you have a tough spot, instead of using soap, use diluted hydrogen peroxide and blot the stain out. I find using cotton balls, q-tips, or a tight thin cotton fabric (like flour sack cloths) are most effective when removing stains by blotting.
Do not use vinegar, stain removal products, or lemon in any instance. As the colors can be reactive to those substances often creating a bigger issue.
