There are several size charts on this page. Choose the appropriate chart below.
36,40,42 ETC Sized Basic Apparel
Note that all items are not available in all sizes. Many items are only available in S, M L. When this is the case, we can NOT get a larger size of that particular style. We carry the full size range available in all designs we carry. Most sizes go by Small, Medium, Large etc. Measurements and approximate numerical size equivalent are noted below. Measurements are accurate. Numerical size equivalents are approximate and intended as a guide.
If you fall between sizes, buy the larger size. We reccommend you purchase the size that will fit all your measurements. If your bust is smaller than the chart size, but your waist is larger, choose the size that will fit your waist. On most tops and corsets, hip size is not important.
Waist measurements. We all wear our pants way below our natural waist. Our charts use your natural waist measurement. Do not measure where you wear your pants. Natural waist generally falls approx 1" above your belly button!
Bust Measurements. Your bust measurement is not your bra band size. Bra band is the circumfrence under your breasts. Your bust measurement is the circumfrence at the fullest point of your breasts, usually directly over the nipple.
