Apparel Size Charts & Measuring Tip

To help you achieve the best fit possible, we've provided a few tips for you to use as a guide when taking your body measurements. We have also provided size charts to assist you when selecting merchandise.

Apparel Measuring Tips

To ensure that the sizing is correct...every time you order. Follow the easy steps below to determine which size will best fit your measurements. For greatest accuracy, have someone else measure you. Be sure to hold the tap straight and snug to your body.

Chest: Measure above bust, keeping tape under arms.

Bust: Hold the tape around the fullest part of your bust. This measurement will assist you in determining your size for tops and relaxed-fitting dresses. Measure around the fullest part while wearing undergarments.

Waist: Measure around the smallest part of your natural waistline, at the point where you wear your pants and skirts. While measuring put a finger between your body and the tape to ensure a comfortable fit.

High Hips: Measure around the top of your hips, about 4" below your waistline.

Low Hips: Measure around the fullest part of your hips, about 8" below the waistline (standing with heels together). This measurement will help you determine the most appropriate size for pants, skirts and form fitting dresses.

Skirt Lengths: This measurement refers to the distance from the waist to the skirt hemline.

Inseam: This measurement refers to the distance from the rise to the pant hemline. Please note that while we strive to provide consistent sizing, on occasion sizes may vary slightly from manufacturer to manufacturer.

Petite & Tall: Some sizes come in Petite and Tall. Lengths are proportioned to your size and the particular garment style.

* Average: 5'4" to 5'7"
* Petites: 4'11" to 5'3 1/2"
* Talls: 5'7" to 5'11"
