Determining Your Size:
Sizing varies between brands and designers. Determining your body measurements will help more accurately determine your size. For Tops, the common reference point is your bust measurement and, for bottoms, it is your waist measurement. These measurements are meant as a guide, not an exact guarantee of fit. Please note that designer sizing runs smaller than classic apparel brands (Abercrombie, Gap, etc.)
Taking Your Own Measurements:
Bust: Place arms at sides, place tape measure under your arms and run it around the fullest part of the bust line and across the shoulder blades. (Keep measuring tape horizontal)
Natural Waist: The slimmest part of your natural waistline - above your navel and below your rib cage.
Hips: The fullest part of your hips at the top of your legs - approximately 7 to 8 inches below your natural waistline.
Inseam: For full-length pants, run tape measure along the inside of your leg, from just below the crotch to about 1 inch below the ankle.
