We think the secret to a great look is a truly good fit. However, finding the "right size" is not always easy, especially when you don't have the luxury of a fitting room. Here is where the tape measure comes in. Follow the instructions below, and compare your measurements to the charts…also below. If you are still unsure, give us the measurements and we will make sure you are choosing the right size for the garments you have selected.

Basic Measuring Instructions

  1. Take measurements when the person is standing, if at all possible.
  2. Measure around the fullest parts of the bust, waist and hips. For men, measure the chest and waist.
  3. Keep the tape measure comfortably loose. Most exchanges occur when a garment is too small.
  4. Inseam – Take a pair of pants that fit well. Measure from the crotch seam to the bottom of the pants (or to the bottom of the ankle bone if measuring a standing person). We hem to your inseam for free! Please note: If we hem to 25" or shorter, the garment is non-returnable, so you may want to start with just one to make sure they fit before ordering several pair.
  5. The sitting inseam – if the person being measured must remain seated, it may be difficult to locate the beginning of the crotch seam, in which case, add 2" to your measurement to allow for gathered fabric.

How to Find Your Size: Bras, Panties, Undershirts

How to measure for a bra:

Step 1: Find your cup size

To get your cup size, first measure around the underbust/diaphragm/ribcage…right under the bust. Then measure around the fullest part of the bust with your bra on. If the fullest measurement is 2" more than your underbust measurement, your cup size would be a B – 3" more would be a C – 4" more would be a D – 5" more a DD, etc. So, if your underbust measurement is, say, 34, and your fullest measurement is 36, the cup size would be a B. If the fullest measurement had been 37", your cup size would be a C, etc.  If you're not able to get an accurate measurement with method, sometimes just "eyeballing" the cup size works.

Step 2: Find your body size

The most important measurement when sizing for a bra is the underbust/diaphragm/rib cage measurement. It is this area that will hold the bra in place and create the support you need. Take that underbust measurement from above (34"), and add 5" to that number. For example, if the underbust measurement is 34", adding 5" to it will make it 39". This is the size you would need. If you end up with an uneven number, as we did, you would round up to the next largest even number. Our final body size measurement is 40". Using the measurements we used as examples, the final bra size would be a 40B.

Shoe Sizes

To determine the proper shoe size

Trace the shape of the foot onto paper. Then, measure from the heel to the end of the big toe in inches. Compare this measurement to the foot length column below. Simply match the length to the size column. For mail orders, send in your tracing and we will match the size for you.

How to Size Feet

In order to determine the right size for socks and footwear, you will need to take a few measurements of the foot. Measuring heel to toe will give you the length and is the first important measurement in determining size. You must also measure the girth of both the ankle and the arch. These measurements will help you to determine the degree of edema.

Next to each footwear product in our catalog, we will suggest the appropriate size based on the product’s response to the "degrees of swelling" chart below.

Degrees of Swelling

  Normal/Mild Moderate Severe
Women’s ankle 9"-11" 11"-12" 12" and up
Women’s arch 9"-10" 10"-12" 12" and up
Men’s ankle 9"-11" 11"-12" 12" and up
Men’s arch 9"-10" 10"-12" 12" and up
