Sonia Stradiotto Couture
We use more generous sizing than Australian standard for our garments.
Please take the time to measure accurately as a change in size may not always be possible. Please remember again - we are generous.
Note - If you normally wear an Australian size 14,
you will likely be a size 12 in our Brand.
How to measure your hips
Stand in front of a full length mirror in just your underwear. This will help ensure your tape doesn’t twist.
Place your feet together, toes facing forward.
Find the widest part of your hips -usually under your derrière - and place your measuring tape in the middle of this point by securing it with your thumb on the side of your hip.
Bring the tape around your back to join at the starting point. The tape should be level to ensure it records your bottom measurements too, and snug but not digging in. If you can fit more than one finger under the joined tape, it’s too loose.
Record the number at the meeting point of the tape. This is your hip measurement.
HOW TO MEASURE YOUR WAIST
Start by removing your clothing or raising your shirt to just below your chest. The tape measure will need to be against your bare stomach to offer accurate information. Using your fingers, find your waist by placing your thumbs at the base of your rib cage and your index fingers at the top of your hips. Your waist will be the narrowest part of your torso. Stand up straight, exhale slowly, and bring the measuring tape from your navel around your body to connect at the front. The tape should be parallel to the floor and fit snugly around your torso without digging in.Write down the number at the meeting point of the measuring tape. This is your waist measurement.
HOW TO MEASURE YOUR BUST
Do not remove your bra. Place the tape measure directly around your bra, at nipple height.
Round to the nearest whole number.
This will become your bust measurement.
