Your Ultimate Guide To Choosing The Perfect Size

Choosing the perfect size when buying ladies clothing online can sometimes be a daunting task, but don’t worry it doesn’t have to be.

We all have different body shapes, so picking styles that work best on our shapes and sizes can be hard. The best trick is to measure all parts of your body and compare on the size charts provided under the product descriptions so you can figure out if the style will suit your measurements.

If you follow the right steps below by taking accurate measurements and reading the size charts you shouldn’t have any troubles when choosing your go-to fit. Find out how to take the perfect measurements and choose the best size below!

How to choose the perfect size:

Get some accurate measurements of your body!

The first and perhaps most important thing you can do before you buy online is to get proper measurements of yourself. Once you have an idea of your size – not just size 12, or that you have a large bust, but the specific measurements then you can read the size charts and see if they fit you.

Parts of your body to consider measuring are; your bust, hips, stomach or natural waist, thighs, leg length and arm length. Keep these in a diary or on a piece of paper somewhere where you can easily grab them when you are shopping online.

How to measure yourself:

If you’re buying a top…

1. First, measure your bust, which is the fullest part of your chest.
2. Then measure your natural waist, keeping the tape a bit loose. The term “natural waist” refers to the smallest part of your midsection (not your hips).

If you’re buying pants…

1. Measure your natural waist. Just remember to keep the tape loose.
2. Measure your hips, which are the fullest part of your body at the top of your leg.
3. Then, measure your inseam, starting at the crotch seam and ending at the bottom of your leg. Your inseam will help you buy pants that fit well and let you decide if you need to opt for a size that specifies a “tall” or “regular” inseam. If you are petite, you might be able to tell if you will need your pants hemmed.

If you’re buying a dress…

1. Measure your bust.
2. Measure your natural waist.
3. Measure your hips.

Now look at the size charts on the product descriptions – these are your new best friends and compare to make sure you fit that particularly brand or style’s measurements even if you know you are typically a certain size!
