To find your perfect fit you need to determine your size. How to do it? Very easy!
In some cases it is possible to determine the size by height and weight. For example, if you buy a blouse or a dress made from jersey, or from a fabric with the high elastane content. Also, this method is applicable for clothes with oversized silhouette.
However, usually it is difficult to choose clothes by height and weight, because people with the same height and weight can differ in other parameters of the figure. Therefore, determining the size of clothing by height and weight is not quite accurate for adults. So we recommend to use the bust, waist and hips measurements for the exact result.
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.
When you take a look at your wardrobe, do you have a thought that “I have nothing to wear”? Surely you do. In order to dress stylishly, it’s not necessary to spend all of your salary on clothes. Explore yourself! Your personal color preferences, your type of figure, form of activity, lifestyle and sphere of interests will give a starting point for creating your own unique style.
