There are 4 key areas to measure when fitting swimwear. To achieve an accurate measurement we recommend wearing minimal clothing when measuring and holding the measuring tape straight and parallel to the floor.
Bust: Measure the fullest area of your bust and straight around your back, while standing with your arms down.
Waist: Measure the smallest section of your waist.
Hips: Putting your feet together, measure the fullest part of your hips.
Torso: Run a tape measure full circle from a point on the shoulder midway between the neck and the shoulder, over the fullest part of the bust, down between your legs and back up to the starting point. Hint: start with the tape measure going over the back and up through the crotch for easier measuring.
Coverups you can size up if you are looking for a loose, comfy look.
Allow some room in boardshorts without stretch for a more comfortable fit.
UV Shirts should fit snug like a second skin, as they stretch about half a size once wet. Loose fit UV Shirt styles can fit more on the comfy side.
