Size information

General Notes

The measurements on this page are body measurements not measurements of the garments!
This means: If your body matches these figures the garments should usually fit.

In contrast to this the size charts at the items usually contain the exact measurements of the garments. Marked differences between body and textile measurements can occur due to the elasticity of the fabrics.
Example A: A ladies' leggings usually is very elastic and is used to be worn skin tight. But if you measure these leggings flat on a table, the circumference of the thighs is clearly less than in worn condition, because it will be stretched. 
Example B: In contrast a men's coat generally is much wider than your real bust extent. Normally you wear something underneath a coat, maybe a shirt, or even a vest, a shirt and a singlet. And a coat usually is not elastic.

Assistance for your measurements:

You have to measure always the complete circumference.

Bust = full bust circumference (not your bra size or underbust!)
Taille/Waist  = circumference of the smallest part betwenn bust and pelves
Hips = circumference of the widest part of the lower trunk (=buttocks)

Note: "Waist" is not equally to "waistband". The waistband is the top of pants, skirts or leggings. Usually it is not worn at the height of your waist, but somewhat lower. If you wish to know the right waistband for you regarding to a special item, you should measure the waistband of a similar garment, that you already own and that fits perfect, for comparison. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All figures in these tables are rough measurements in cm based on information by the manufaturers. Minor deviations of about 1-2 cm (0,5-1 inch) are due to production issues.

Note: Corsets are sized according to your waist size, not dress size. Corsets should be ordered 2-4 inches (5-10cm) smaller than the natural waist size. e.g. a 27" waist (70cm waist/regular size 10/M) should order a 24" (=61cm) corset. Only by this you can achieve the special wasp waist effect. (1" = 2,54 cm)

All measurements from corsets with completely closed lace up.
