Please order according to the size charts. Adequate ease has been added to all the garments. We use two size charts because we need less of a gap between sizes for close fitting garments such as camisoles, than we do for elasticated garments such as briefs. If you need further help with sizing please contact us, with your measurements and the garments that you would like.
Bust, Waist and Hips in the above charts refer to measurements as shown in the diagram.
Bra and cup size are obtained in the following way:
Whilst wearing a bra, take the underbust measurement holding the tape measure firmly. Take the measurement in inches (If you measure in centimeters, divide the result by 2.54). If the number of inches is odd, add five, if it is even add four, this result is the bra size. Next take the bust measurement. The difference between the underbust measurement and the bust measurement gives the cup size as follows:
4 inches is an A cup
5 inches is a B cup
6 inches is a C cup
7 inches is a D cup
8 inches is a DD cup
Underbust measures 32 inches, bust measures 37 inches, waist measures 28 inches, and hips 38 inches.
Underbust is even, so add 4 to give a bra size of 36. The difference between the underbust and bust size is 5 inches, giving cup size B. The correct size of bra or basque is 36B.
Bust size is 37 inches, so for camisoles, nighties etc, size 14 or medium is the correct size.
Waist size is 28 inches, so for briefs, french knickers etc, medium is the correct size.
Size charts for stockings are shown on the stocking pages.
