The Ultimate Curtain Tiebacks Sizing Guide

Updated: Jun 15, 2023

Curtain tiebacks are not only practical but also add a touch of elegance and style to your window treatments. Choosing the right size is crucial for both functionality and aesthetics. In this comprehensive sizing guide, we will provide you with the necessary information to select the perfect tiebacks for your curtains. Whether you have solid or sheer curtains, we've got you covered. Let's dive in!




Sizing Guide for Solid Curtains: When it comes to solid curtains, it's essential to consider the number of panels and their width. Our sizing recommendations are based on poly cotton fabric of 220 to 250 GSM. They are as follows:

​1 PANEL

10 - 12.5 INCHES

2 PANEL

15 INCHES

3 PANEL

17.5 INCHES

4 PANEL

20 INCHES


* Note: Standard width of 1 panel of curtain in the market is usually 54"


If you're working with thicker curtain fabrics like brocade, velvet, suede, jacquard or curtain with blackout lining it's advisable to add a margin of 2.5 inches from 2 panels onwards. This ensures a proper fit and accommodates the fabric's thickness. While these measurements serve as a general guideline, we encourage you to use a measuring tape for precise calculations. Our website features helpful images to assist you in visualizing the process.


Step 1 - Gather and tie a thread across your curtain at a comfortable length.



Step 2 - Measure the length and refer to our size options while shopping.


Sizing Guide for Sheer Curtains: Sheer curtains require a slightly different approach due to their lighter and more delicate nature. Consider the following sizing recommendations:

1 PANEL

10 INCHES

2 PANEL

12.5 INCHES

3 PANEL

15 INCHES

4 PANEL

17.5 INCHES


For sheer curtains made from materials such as net or chiffon, you may need anywhere between 6-8 inches of tieback for a single or double panel. To ensure a perfect fit, we strongly advise measuring the curtains with a measuring tape, as shown in the above image.



Important Suggestions:


The sizing recommendations mentioned above are specifically applicable to our pincushion, broad belt, ruffle tiebacks, and button belt tiebacks. We would like to provide some additional guidance for choosing tiebacks from our pincushion range.


Pincushion tiebacks are a popular choice among our customers. However, it's crucial to consider the curtain's thickness and the belt's visibility for the best aesthetic outcome. Thin curtains or very small belts may not provide a solid base for the pincushion tiebacks to hold straight. We recommend using pincushion tiebacks on curtains with a belt width ranging from 15 to 20 inches.


Selecting the appropriate size for your curtain tiebacks is essential for both functionality and aesthetics. Our comprehensive sizing guide for solid and sheer curtains provides you with the necessary information to make an informed decision.


Remember, these recommendations are meant to serve as a starting point, and we encourage you to measure your curtains using a measuring tape for precise calculations. At Studio Yuri, we strive to deliver exceptional quality and style, ensuring that your curtain tiebacks perfectly complement your window treatments.
