Actual garments are measured. See individual pages for size charts. All garments should measure to the rest of the industry. so if you wear a size 8-10 normally you should get a size 8-10 from our company.
Also note: Our garments are made to fit on your NATURAL WAIST NOT ON THE HIP and NOT THE NEW EUROPEAN SIZING which is made with a straighter waist so it fits on the hips and is made with a smaller sizing chart, therefore the waist on fitted garments are going to have a tapered waist . We have found this difference mostly in junior sizing. SO: If you wear a size 16 on a garment that is made to wear on the hip you may have to get a size 20 in our sizing if youwant it on the hips. You can know if your skirt your measuring from has a 5" zipper or has a straigh fit from the hips. Our garments are made to fit around the natural waist but have a little room in the backsize and hips .
