Buying online isn't always easy, especially when you're shopping f
or lingerie. There isn't a standard sizing system in the lingerie industry, and here at My Retro Closet I stock a variety of brands who use different specifications. Lets start with measuring yourself correctly...
Measuring yourself correctly is key to finding your correct lingerie size and ultimately making sure your new lingerie purchase fits you like a dream. To make it super easy for you, I've created an easy diagram, so you know exactly where and how to take the correct measurements.
I recommend using a soft tape measure, and either take your measurements with nothing on or regular briefs. Stand naturally so you can take the most accurate measurements possible
Your natural waist is the narrowest part of your torso, between the top of your hip bone and at the bottom of your rib cage.
Take your hip measurement at the widest part of your lower hips.
Now you have your correct measurements, take a look at the size guides below to find your size. All measurements and dress sizes have been taken from the brand's own websites. If you are still unsure of the sizing for you or your loved one, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will do my best to help. I also offer custom sizing on all my nightwear styles, again please just get in contact and I will always see what I can do for you.
