Then, measure required areas and find the right size in the size chart. The figurine on the picture below will provide you with hints of points that should be measured.

Tips for Proper Measurement
- Before you start, remove all your clothes except for underwear so that the measurement is not distorted – it is the only way to get the most accurate results. Also, it is important to stand upright, have a loose belly and breathe naturally.
- When the measurements are taken, the measuring tape has to be in a horizontal position. The tape must not point downwards or upwards so as not to distort the measurements.
- When taking measurements, do not tighten the tape around your body, it has to touch the body, but must not be too tight or too loose.
- Wright all measurements on paper and re-measure again for accuracy.
