International Sizing Chart
Little Miss Curvy on how to measure yourself for clothing
Please compare your size carefully before you buy. Thank you.
When measuring yourself for any piece of women's clothing, measure yourself in a non-padded bra. This will give you the most accurate measurement for a women's dress or other item of women's clothing you're going to buy. And don't pull the tape measure too tight! Your beautiful.
Where to measure
Measure at the natural waistline, just above the hip bone. Remember everything is made in China, so always always go up 2 sizes or at least one size e.g. if you are a Large buy a XXL.
Measure from the natural waistline in a straight line.
Measure from the top of the inside leg to the floor.
Measure around the fullest part of the bust and across the shoulder blades of your back. When measuring the bust for women's underwear and swimwear, follow the bra measuring guidelines.
Measure around the fullest part of your hips. As a guideline this is often 20cm below your natural waistline.
Measure from the centre back neck in a straight line.
