Lingerie Measuring Tips / Sizing by Brand / Lingerie Care

Choosing Your Lingerie Size

Because of its very intimate nature and because lingerie is a very personal item, it is very important to know your accurate lingerie size. Lingerie that does not fit well will not only feel uncomfortable on the wearer, it will not make the wearer feel beautiful too.

To avoid getting a piece of lingerie in a wrong size, please read our measuring tips below to determine your correct lingerie size. Once you know your accurate size, it's important to check it against the sizing charts of the different brands. Unfortunately, many manufacturers size things differently, which is why the brand sizing charts below have been directly gathered from the brand manufacturers to help you find the most accurate and comfortable size of lingerie available.

Measuring tips

Measuring TipsBust

Measure around your body, under your arms and over the fullest part of your bust. Keep the measuring tape comfortably loose.

Waist

Hold measuring tape at your natural waistline. Keep the measuring tape comfortably loose.

Hips

Measure around the fullest part of your body, placing the tape about midway between your crotch and belly button. Keep the tape comfortably loose.

One Size Fits Most (One Size)

These items are usually made with stretchable material and/or come with adjustable straps making them capable of fitting an array of body shapes and sizes. If you are at either end of the size ranges above, particularly at the upper end, then you may want to avoid the “One Size” styles.

Different lingerie manufacturers have different size ranges that fit the One Size category.  So please check against the individual size charts of the manufacturers to obtain the correct fit and size.

S/M, M/L or L/XL

Some items such as our dressing robes are adjustable or elastic enough that they come in combined sizes. This means that size S/M will fit you if you are either an S or M as shown in the size chart. Likewise size M/L will fit you if you are an M or L as shown in the size chart.  Do refer to the individual brand's size charts for a more accurate representation.

In between sizes

If the chart shows you are in between sizes, we recommend going with the larger size.

Caring for Your Lingerie

Keeping the delicate fabrics of your lingerie looking beautiful requires special care. Here we recommend a few simple steps to follow. 

Ideally, lingerie should be hand washed in cool water. Use a mild detergent or soap and rub gently but exercise caution when rubbing so as not to pull the threads out. Use a delicate stain remover for stubborn stains - never bleach your lingerie. Hang out to drip dry after washing. Do not wring or twist your lingerie as this ruins its shape. 

If you prefer to machine wash, turn your lingerie inside out and close all clasps, buttons and zippers. Separate and wash similar color items at one time - do not mix light and dark colored garments. Also use a lingerie bag which are little mesh bags that allow in soap and water but keeps your lingerie from being stretched all around the machine. Set the machine to delicate cycle at cool temperature. Hang out to drip dry after washing. DO NOT use a tumble dryer. 

Certain lingerie items are simply not designed to be machine washed. If the manufacturer recommends dry cleaning or hand washing, please follow their advice.
