The main distinguishing attribute between the body types is the relation of a person’s waist size to their hips and bust.
Hourglass and triangle shapes have a more curvaceous silhouette with their waist being smaller then their hips and bust. Their waist is more defined and we call these shapes “Waist” shapes.
Apple, rectangle, oval and inverted triangle shapes have more of a straight silhouette. Their waist is not much bigger than their hips and is not as well defined. We refer to these shapes as “No-Waist” shapes.
Taking this difference into account to offer the best fit possible we have created two sizing charts. One chart is for Waist shapes and one for No-Waist shapes.
For your convenience these charts are shown with the measurements in inches (imperial) and then in centimetres (metric).
It is important to remember that size charts are indicative only. While they give you an overall idea of what dress size you should look for in-store, they do not take into account personal preference and, more importantly how a garment looks and feels when you wear it.
