As long as you know your measurements, you shouldn’t have a problem figuring out which sizes work best for you.
The measurements will be accurate if you take them in your underwear or in thin clothes.
Keep the measuring tape snug but not too tight. It should be rather stretched, as close as possible to the body. It is necessary to maintain the habitual posture.
What measurements should I take?
1) Bust – you’ll need to place the measuring tape horizontally and measure the fullest part of your bust to get the proper measurement.
2) Waist – measure in the narrowest place. Bend to one side (doesn’t matter which) and find your waist’s natural crease.
3) Hips – place the measuring tape horizontally. Measure around the fullest part of your hips.
4) You also need to know your height – it’s measured without shoes.
If your measurements correspond to the different sizes, you need to take into account the type of clothing that is planned to be purchased. For pants or skirts, you need to have in mind the waist and hips, and for a blouse or jumper – the bust.
If you buy a dress from inelastic fabric, be guided by the measurements corresponding to a larger size. For example, if your bust corresponds to the size M, and the hips to the size S, it is recommended to choose the size M.
If your measurements are between two sizes, you should take into account the habitual style of clothing. Preferring close fit you can choose a smaller size, and preferring relaxed fit – choose a bigger size.
