How to Measure to find your size
Extra Large (XL)
Plus Size (1X-2X)
Small / Medium
Medium / Large
Bust (in cm)
Waist (in cm)
Hips (in cm)
*These 'One Size' items are usually made with stretchable material and/or come with adjustable straps making them capable of fitting an array of body shapes and sizes. If you are at either end of the size ranges above, particularly at the upper end, then you may want to avoid the "one size" styles.
Measure over your undergarments, keeping the tape relaxed, not snug. (If your measurements fall between two size ranges, it is best to go the larger size.)
Bust: Measure under your arms and around the fullest part of your bust.
Waist: Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape comfortably loose.
Hips: With your feet together, measure around the fullest part of your hips about 8" below your waist.
Inseam: Lay a pair of pants that fit you well flat and measure the inside seam from crotch to hem.
