Shapewear Style Guide

The sizing charts below are intended as a general guideline for all clothing listed on Trendy Essentials and are intended for reference only. Please bear in mind that sizes can vary between manufacture.

 

Body height
1. Stand against a door frame, without shoes, and measure from the top of your head to the soles of your feet.

2 & 3. Chest/Bust
Measure around your chest under your bust, at the level where the lowest part of your bra should sit. Take this measurement: if it is even, add four, if it is odd, add five. The resulting number is your band size.

To get your bust size, measure around the fullest part of your breasts. To obtain your cup size, subtract your band size from your bust size. If the two are the same, you are an A cup. If your bust size is one inch larger than your band size, you are a B cup, two inches larger and you are a C cup etc.

4. Waist
Measure the circumference of the narrowest point between the bottom of your ribs and the top of your hip bone. Measure after breathing out.

5. Hips
Measure the circumference of the fullest part of your hips. This is normally around 9 inches below your waist.

6. Inside Leg
Pull the tape measure to the very top of the inside of your leg. Let the tape measure fall down and measure to your ankle. If you like your trouser long then measure down to the lower part of your foot.

7. Leg Length
You can also take a full leg measurement by placing the tape measure on your waist (see above) and letting it fall to the floor or your ankle

Mens’s Measure Guide

1. Body height
To measure your height, it is easiest to do so against a door frame, without shoes. Measure from the top of your head to the soles of
your feet.

2. Neck/Collar Size
Wrap a tape measure around the base of your neck, allowing two fingers to be able to slip comfortably between your throat and the tape measure.

3. Chest size
Place a tape measure loosely under the arms and around the fullest part of the chest.

4. Sleeve length
Measure from the middle of the back of your collar, take it to the point of the shoulder, all the way down the sleeve, (elbow slightly bent,) to your wrist where you would like the cuff to rest. (A double cuff would need to be folded to get your correct sleeve length).

5. Waist
Place a tape measure around your waist at the narrowest point between the bottom of your ribs and the top of your hip bone. Make sure the tape is straight and snug but doesn’t compress your skin. Measure after breathing out.

6. Inside Leg
Pull the tape measure to the very top of the inside of your leg. Let the tape measure fall down and measure to your ankle. If you like your trouser long then measure down to the lower part of your foot.

7. Leg Length
You can also take a full leg measurement by placing the tape measure on your waist(see above) and letting it fall to the floor or
your ankle.
