You will see that we have deliberately decided to make a simplistic and fun page so that you don’t take yourself too seriously while still having enough information to take the right measurements and order your clothes in the right size.Fun is the key word!

The 4 points to note:

    1. METHODS OF MEASUREMENT: they are exactly the same for men as for women…except, I hope you have understood, gentlemen, for the choice of your bras.
      • Or else, gentlemen, learn how to pick out these ladies’ bras!
      • And for men don’t forget your neck size, especially for shirts, T-shirts…
    2. STAND UP RIGHT:To take your measurements, for pity’s sake, don’t be like our charming but capricious models!
      • Stand up straight, no shoes.
      • Preferably measure on bare skin or in underwear for accurate measurements.
    3. DON’T BE ALONE:Take a cloth tape measure and ask the person who is going to have a good time with you to help you with this measuring session.
    4. TABLE OF INTERNATIONAL MEASURES:With us it’s not complicated! We try to put a table of the corresponding sizes in the description of each product.
      • PLEASE NOTE: We will not use a conversion table, these tables are unreliable and a source of error. Use our indications for each product and if you have any doubts please send us a message to the following address: contact@plus-size-online.com.
Plus Size Online, Savoir mesurer son corps : sa hauteur - your total height
  • How to measure your height?

This measure is rarely used but if you need it then : You already know it but they tell you anyway 😇, measure yourself from the top of your head to the soles of your feet.

Stand up straight!

Don’t put on shoes and no socks even if the ground is cold…you have to suffer to know the truth!

  • How to measure your arm length?

The length of your arm is measured from the shoulder to the thumb joint or lower part of the wrist.

The measurement is of course taken on the outer side of the arm.

Remember “No place is more comfortable to sleep than the arms of the person you love”.

  • How to measure your neck size?

This is what can happen to you if the measure is not good!

The neck measurement (or collar size) is mainly used to measure men’s dress shirts.

For men: Wrap the tape measure around your neck, going around the Adam’s apple. Not too tightly… we like you!

For women : this is important for certain types of clothing such as the beautiful Vietnamese outfits called Ao Dai (see article: the Vietnamese áo dài) or Chinese style with high collar : Do as for the men it will please them.

For necklace: is measured at the base of the neck, just above your clavicles, in a V shape.

  • How do you measure the size of your nose?

Sorry…it’s a joke…I couldn’t help myself….

I just wanted to remind you that you’re beautiful!

  • How do you measure your chest size?

Stand up straight and pass the ribbon around your chest, under your armpits without tightening it too much and horizontally.

For women : the ribbon will be placed over the breasts, usually at the strongest partof the chest.

For men: just in the middle of the sternum (thorax or center of the chest).

  • How do you measure your waist size?

When we talk about measuring your waist size (or waist circumference), it means measuring the narrowest or deepest part of your waist.

You must pass the tape loosely over your belly button and below your rib cage.

  • How do you measure your hip or pelvis circumference?

So…Just don’t be like our model who’s got style!

“Stand upright with your legs together.”

You should take the measurement at the strongest part of your hips or pelvis.

This place often corresponds to the height of the buttocks.

  • How do you measure your crotch length?

The crotch is the distance from the top of your thigh (the inside of your thigh at the armpit) to the bottom of your foot at the heel (or the ground).

Note for these ladies: If you need this measurement to wear pants with heels, remember to add 1 or 2 cm to the measurement.

  • How do you find the right bra size?

  • Honestly, it’s a real trick question, it’s so complicated.

Also please note the following important points:

    1. The following information or measurement methods are not absolute, as bra sizes will vary from one brand or model to another.
    2. Depending on the country, the sizes are not expressed in the same way.

To make your choice easier, we will put with each bra model a table with the correspondence of the sizes to guide you to make the right choice.

Let’s move on to measures:

As you know, your bra size is expressed by a number followed by one or two letters, for example: 80C, 115AA (depending on the brand).

But as you can see in this picture, to find the right bra size, you need at least measurements a and b.

a = Your chest circumference:see above how to measure your chest: Chest circumference: here.

b = Your bust measurement: the measurement is under your bust.

Now what to do with them?

Practical example of a measurement ACCORDING TO STANDARDS IN FRANCE :

  • Your chest circumference is 100 cm (a).
  • Your bust measurement is 83 cm (b): see Table 1 for your bra size. According to Table 1 the Size is 100 (line between 83-87 cm).
  • Then to know the depth of the cup, do the following operation: a – b = depth of the cup.
    • In this case: 100 – 85 (you take 85 which is the size of the middle: between 83-87 cm) = 15. Refer to Table 2 for the corresponding letter(s) . In this case the value 15 corresponds to the letter B.
  • Your bra according to FRENCH STANDARDS will be: 100B

  • Below, we have taken and adapted the table on Wikipedia (here). This table seemed clear to us to choose your bra size using the measures we mentioned above.
  • In this table, Example 1 (numbers in red under yellow background): if your underbust measurement is 94 cm (between 93-97 cm) with a bust measurement of 110 cm (between 109-111 cm) then your bra will be: 110B.
  • In this table, Example 2 (numbers in red under green background): if your underbust measurement is 114 cm (between 113-117) with a bust measurement between 138 cm (between 137-139) then your bra will be: 130F.
  • You should be aware that some suits are not available in ready-to-wear. In this case the bras must be made to measure…which we do not offer.
