Which size to choose
The most important measurement is where the item you are buying will be most fitted to your body.
This may be your bust for tops and dresses, and waist for skirts.
To measure yourself
1. Bust: Without a bra, place tape measure around the widest part of your bust. Be careful not to let the tape measure slip down at the back, and don't pull the tape measure too tightly against your bust.
2. Waist: Place tape measure between the bottom of your ribs and the top of your hip bones (often it feels like the smallest point).
3. Hip: Place measuring tape around the widest part of your bottom (this is between your hips and thighs).
