Choosing your Size
- Determine your cup size—subtract the circumference of your over bust from the circumference of the fullest part of your bust. If the rounded difference is 1″ (2.5 cm), use A cup; 2″ (5 cm), use B cup; 3″ (7.5 cm), use C cup; 4″ (10 cm), use D cup; 5″ (12.5 cm), use DD cup.
- After determining the cup size, compare your bust circumference (fullest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Using the corresponding row for your cup, choose the size that best fits your bust. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
- Compare your waist circumference (narrowest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that best fits your waist. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
- Because of the design of the flare skirt, you will not need to blend sizes for the skirt. Choose the same size for your hip as for your waist.
- It’s OK to use different sizes for the bust, waist/hip. See instructions for details.
- If you are taller or shorter than 5’6” (168 cm), you should consider lengthening or shortening the top. See instructions for details.
- It is highly recommended that you check your fit by making a test garment with inexpensive fabrics that have similar weight and stretch as your final garment fabrics.
