To choose the correct size for you, please measure your body before placing your order.

HOW TO MEASURE

Bust: With your arms relaxed at your sides, measure around the fullest part of your chest.

Waist: Measure around the narrowest part of your natural waist, generally around the belly button. To ensure a comfortable fit, keep one finger between the measuring tape and your body.

Hips: With your feet approximately 6" apart, measure around the fullest part of your hips. This area usually corresponds to the top of your legs.
