Ok girls, it’s 2018 and let’s face it - online shopping is def the way of the future. Big box retailers are closing down across the states and making room for more online retailers (i.e. us!) - so now’s the time to master the art of buying the “correct” size. Since the introduction of vanity sizing (they tell you you’re a small but you’re actually a large), finding the right size is kind of like rocket science. But don’t worry - we’ve got you. Sooo get your pencils out ladies… this is going to be educational.
Dust off your measuring tape from you grandma’s old sewing kit (or run to the closest dollar store), you’re going to need this. All online retailers should have a size guide (we sure do) beside the product you are about to buy. When you click this magical button, a complicated chart of endless numbers pops up. The main three measurement you need for most clothing is BUST, WAIST, and HIPS. And, don’t worry we’ve got the “how to” hook up.
So…. you’ve mastered using the measuring tape, here’s a few other tips that should help you find the right size #yourewelcome
Oh, and by the way, incase you didn't know approx. 80% of women in the US are wearing the wrong size bra.
Tip 1. Def look at the mirror when you’re measuring yourself, and make sure the tape creates a straight, horizontal line around your whole body. You’ll thank us later.
Tip 2. You want to make sure you and your girls (boobs not babes) are comfortable... so make sure you’re not measuring too tight or too loose. Find the number on the tape that doesn’t squeeze your skin but is also tight enough that the tape doesn’t droop or sag.
Tip 3. Measure often. We’re not talking like every week, or even every month, but every 6 months or so it doesn't hurt to double check. Your lingerie is super close to your body, so it’s one of the first things you’ll notice fitting tighter or looser if your body size changes.
