Always order using the larger dimension All size charts are in inches.
If you are a size 10/11 or above, you may find that a Lingerie item that is a "One size fits most" may not work for you, and you may want to try a Queen O/S especially when the item is form fitting.
If you are bordering on a size, you may want to go to the next size up. Remember, lingerie tends to run small.
Sizing listed in our size chart are given by the Manufacturer. These sizes are to be used as a guide ONLY! Since we carry several different manufacturers, some variances will exist.

Basic Rules on How to Measure
Use a cloth measuring tape.
Measure under your bust:
add 4ins. if the measurement obtained is an even number of inches
add 5ins. if the measurement obtained is an odd number of inches.
(For example, if your underbust measurement is 31ins., add 5ins. to obtain bra size 36, or, if your underbust measurement is 30ins. add 4ins. to obtain bra size 34.)
Measure round the fullest part of your bust to determine Cup size.
If the bust measurement: is:
same as your bra size, your Cup size is A.
1in. more gives Cup size B
2in. more gives Cup size C
3in. more gives Cup size D
4in. more gives Cup size DD
5in. more gives Cup size E
and so on through F, FF and G
Under bust measurement of
29in. + 5in. = bra size 34
Over bust measurement of
34in. = Cup A
So the correct fitting would be 34A
LOW WAIST - Measure approximately 2" below the natural waistline or 2 fingers below the navel. It is also used for any skirt that sits below the navel.
HIPS -measure around the fullest part of your hip.
These notes aim to provide general indication of your size. However, the best guide is a size you already wear which is comfortable.
