Size chart measurements are measurements of the body, not of clothes. The measurements of individual items of clothing take into account basic body size charts, allowances for a looser fit, silhouette types (see descriptions of individual silhouettes) and design requirements.
With loose-fitting silhouettes, expect greater allowances for a looser fit. If, however, you do not want too loose a fit, you can choose a smaller size. On the other hand, if you want a product with a close-fitting silhouette but do not want it to be too close a fit, you can choose a larger size than that recommended by the size chart.
If your body measurements fall between two chart sizes, we recommend you choose the larger size. This way you will be able to have your clothes adjusted to the exact size you prefer.
When determining your body measurements, you must stand in a natural, relaxed position. Do not draw in your stomach and do not flex or tense your muscles.
