How to Measure

BUST
If possible, get a friend to help. With arms relaxed at your sides, measure the fullest part of your bust, keeping the tape parallel to the floor.
WAIST
Measure around your natural waist (bend sideways – the crease is it). Recommendation: Keep one finger between the tape and your body.
HIPS
Stand with your heels together, and measure around the fullest part of your hips, keeping the tape parallel to the floor.
ARM
Bend your elbow 90 degrees and place your hand on your hip. Hold the tape at the center back of your neck. With a friend's help, measure across your shoulder to your elbow, and down to your wrist. The total length in inches is your sleeve length.
HEIGHT
Stand in stocking feet with your feet slightly apart and your back to a wall. Measure from the floor to the top of your head. Your height will determine whether you are PETITE, REGULAR or TALL.
REGULAR, PETITE, TALL OR 16W-26W
  • Regular- 5'4" - 5'7" tall, with hips slightly larger than bust.
  • Petite- 4'11" - 5'3" tall, proportioned smaller, scaled down in shoulder width and sleeve length.
  • Tall- 5'8" - 6'0" tall, accomodates long body torso and sleeve lengths.
  • 16W-26W- 5'4" - 5'7" tall, proportioned to flatter full-figured women. Compared to our size 16, size 16W is 2" larger in the bust, 2 12" larger in the waist and 1 12" larger in the hip. Arm widths are larger. Shoulder widths are shorter.
