How to know my plus sized clothing will fit?
We understand that accurate measurements are crucial when shopping online for plus sized clothing. That’s why Curvaceous™ provide the actual measurements of every piece of plus size clothing we sell rather than a generalised size chart.
You can find the measurement charts on every main product page within the description.
We carry our own label Curvaceous as well as a small portion (around 10%) from the UK. All labels differ which is why we take the time to give you exact measurements of every piece of plus size clothing
The measurement is taken from side seam to side seam 1" under the armhole or sleeve and then doubled.
You will often see for the bust the relaxed to a gentle stretch measurement to show the maximum bust fit with stretch fabrics.
Waist & Hips
The measurement is taken from side to side at the lower waistline or fullest part of the hips and doubled.
Top of shoulder to bottom hem or for bottoms the top seam to the bottom.
So what’s the best way to know the garment is going to fit?
We suggest measuring a similar fabric at home (i.e stretch or non-stretch material) to ensure a good fit, rather than your body measurements.
If you shop by your body measurements there's a few things you should remember
For most stretch garments you want your bust to fall in the middle to get that semi fitted look.
For non-stretch garments you need to allow room, if your bust is 140cm you don't want to buy a top that is 140cm, it will be too tight! You need room to move.
Measure your fullest part of your bust, natural waist line and hips. If you need extra help please feel free to email us your measurements.
With your waist and hips if you don’t want them to cling, make sure your body measurements are under the relaxed measurement shown
For dresses, the general rule of thumb for dresses are get your bust fit right and the rest of the dress falls into place.
