The key to a good fit is accurate measurements.
- Bust: Wearing a supportive and comfortable bra, measure around the largest part of your bust.
- Waist: Measure around your natural waistline.
- Hips: Measure around the largest part of your hips; low or high, we need the largest measurement only.
- Out Seam: If you’re ordering pants or a skirt, please include an outseam measurement down the side of your body from your waist to just below your ankle bone.
- Ankle Length for a Dress: Measure from the crest of your shoulder, down over the apex of your breast to the top of your instep.
Our sizing system reflects 30 years of working hands-on with lots of plus size bodies. Dressing women from 14 – 34, petite to tall is tricky and we learned them all first hand.
Here’s one of my favorite tricks for accurate measuring without a measuring tape:
Divide and Conquer
- Using a string or ribbon that doesn’t stretch, measure, for instance, your bust.
- Fold that amount of string in half.
- Then fold THAT in half.
- Measure and multiply by 4. Voila!
