How to Shop by Size

By Peggy Lutz

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.

 Divide and Conquer

If you don’t have a measuring tape, use the “Divide and Conquer” method:
  • 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!

Your Height Range

Let us know your height so your clothing can be proportioned for you:

  • Petite: 5′ 1″ – 5′ 4″
  • Medium: 5′ 5″ – 5′ 9″
  • Tall: 5′ 10″ – 6′ 0″

(Please note that if you are over 5′ 10″ tall, there may be an additional charge for the creation of your garments.)

Define Your Shape

Each body is unique, but here are some basics:

  • If your hips are a size larger than your bust, you’re a Pear and may order bottoms a size larger than tops.
  • If your bust is a size larger than your hips, you’re an Apple and may order tops a size larger than bottoms.
  • If both are about equal, you have an Hour-Glass and are likely in one size category
