Knowing your lingerie size?

At De Lingerie Academie we work with our own patterns, made with the standard European sizing system.

To know your own size please follow our guidelines below

 

BOTTOMS

 

Measure around waist and hips with a tape measure over your underwear.

 

WAIST: measure horizontal around the smallest part of your waist. Mind that your natural waist is much higher than you might think. Mostly it is about 5 centimeter above your belly button. The tape measure should be held close to the skin, but without pulling it. Check your waist measurement below.

 

HIPS: measure horizontal around the widest part of your hips. The tape measure should be held close to the skin, but without pulling it. Check your hip measurement below.

 

When in doubt take the larger size.

BRA SIZE

 

Measure bust and ribcage with a tape measure while wearing a good fitting underwired bra (preferably without padding).

 

We strongly recommend you determine your correct size with the measurements in the size chart and not according to your regular bra size!

 

The ribcage measurement determines the band size (ex. 70, 75, ...).

The bust measurement dertermines the cup size (ex. A, B, C, ...).

 

RIBCAGE (onderborst in the size chart): measure horizontal around the ribcage just under the bust. You can really tighten the tape measure but do not over pull. Check your ribcage measurement below.

 

BUST (borstomtrek in the size chart): measure horizontal around the fullest part of the bust. The tape measure should be held close to the skin, but without pulling it. Check your bust measurement below.

 

When in doubt take the larger size.
