Sizing and Measurements

Over time some manufacturers have individualized sizing and overall industry standards have changed.  What was once an 8 is sometimes a 6 and sometimes a 10, depending on the manufacturer and the time period of its creation.  To assist our customers in ordering clothing that will work for them, we've created this simple page to help you understand how each garment is measured and how those measurements translate into sizes - regardless of what the manufacturer has listed as the size.

The original size as well as the measurements are listed in the attribute table to the right of each product.  We measure each piece without stretching, so if the garment you're looking at has spandex in it expect a little give.

 We hope this will make ordering easier for you and help you to always get a good fit.
