Vikki Vi Clothing has a relaxed, drapey fit, so you may need to order a smaller size than usual. The size chart shows the measurements of the garments laid flat. There is considerable stretch in both the Classic and Jersey fabrics.
Remember that not every style is designed with your body shape in mind. For example if you're pear-shaped, a dress with straight sides will either be too tight across your hips or too loose across the bust. In that case, A-Line shaped styles will fit your more comfortably.
If you're unsure which size to order, please contact us and we can advise you. Brands that aren't Vikki Vi follow a different size chart (available on the product page), and we're happy to pop into the warehouse and measure a garment for you if necessary.
How to Measure Your Body
Relax and remind yourself that your measurements are neutral bits of information. We know that this can be an emotional experience, but it doesn't have to be. You're just gathering data.
Waist - Let's start with this one because it's easiest. Wrap the measuring tape around your waist and come on, baby do the twist. That twisting motion moves the measuring tape to your natural waist.
Bust - Wiggle the measuring tape up so that the back is a few inches above your bra band. You want to measure the largest part of your bust and since you want the measuring tape to be parallel to the floor, wiggle it around until it is.
Hips - You need to measure the biggest part of your hips - the hard part is figuring out where that is. Every booty is unique, so you may need to measure several spots to find the biggest one. It's probably lower down than you expect.
Inseam - You may find it easiest to measure a favorite pair of pants to find your inseam measurement. Lay the pants on a flat surface and measure from the crotch to the ankle.
