Size guide

How to determine your size?

Bust - use a measuring tape to measure your chest around the fullest part of your bust (over the nipples). Make sure that the tape is level all around and that you are wearing a thin top without any padding on the bust.

Under Bust size - measure around the body, directly below the bust.

Waist - wearing thin clothing place a tape around your body at the top of your hipbone. The waistline is usually at the level of your belly button. Do not hold the tape too tight and ensure the tape measure is straight around the back.

Hips - wearing thin clothing measure the circumference of your hips. Start at one hip and wrap the tape measure around your rear, around the other hip, and back to where you started. Make sure the tape is over the largest part of your buttocks.
