1. Bust
Measure, under your arms and over the fullest part of your bust, all the way around your body while wearing a bra. Remember to keep the measuring tape comfortably loose. Bust size is not as important as your waist and hip size when picking a full body item.

2. Waist
Measure the area of your stomach where you are the thinnest (usually 1-3" above your belly button). Keep the measuring tape comfortably loose, but please do not inhale to get the smallest possible measurement.

3. Hips (sometimes referred to as "Low hip measurement")
This is the measurement that most people have issues with since some companies advise you to measure at your hip bone (we prefer to use the larger part for a more accurate fit). Please measure around the fullest part of your hips and butt. Keeping the tape comfortably loose move it around until you find the largest measurement.

4. Bra size

We offer our padded PVC bras with regular or "mega" pushup padding. Ultra padded just means the highest pushup level we can find for your cup size. The pushup cups with the extra padding cost more for us to purchase so the cost is $5 extra. Both options have pushup padding, the mega/ultra just is a lot more padding. We offer a wide range of band, 32, 34, 36, 38, 40 and cup sizes A, B, C, D, DD, DDD/E which you can pick using the options on the product page.

The best way to tell what size you are is by trying on actual bras and we try to keep our sizes as standard as possible. We are always hesitant to suggest people pick a bra size based on their own measurements since its so easy to make mistakes so please go with your normal bra size that fits you best. With that in mind here is how bra sizes are calculated:

Run a tape measure all the way around your body just below your breasts on your rib cage and take a measurement in inches. Make sure the tape measure is horizontal and fairly snug with your arms hanging at your side. Add 4-5" to this number to get your band size. So if under your bust is 30" your band size is 34. If you are an odd number add 5". For example, if you measured 27" under your breasts, your band size should be 32 (28+5").

Once you have picked your band size, measure around the fullest part of your breasts while wearing a non-padded bra, then subtract that number from your band size which you picked in the earlier step. This is the difference between the band size you have chosen, not your underbust measurement. For example if you have a 32" underbust and you have picked a band size of 36 (32+4) and your breast size is 38" you are 36B (a 2" difference between the band and your chest size). As another example if you have a 33" underbust measurement and have picked a band size of 38 (33+5") and your chest size is 42" you are a 38D (a 4" difference between your band and chest size). You must base your cup size based on your band size which you have calculated in the first step, not on your underbust size. 

If the two numbers differ by 1 inch, you need an A-cup
If the two numbers differ by 2 inches, you need a B-cup
If the two numbers differ by 3 inches, you need a C-cup
If the two numbers differ by 4 inches, you need a D-cup
If the two numbers differ by 5 inches, you need a DD-cup
If the two numbers differ by 6 inches, you need a DDD/E-cup

5. Inseam (used for free customization for catsuits and leggings)
This may be a little different than what you usually use for your inseam measurement but allows us to make the clothing the exact measurements you requrie. Please follow close to your body for these since it can end up looking shorter due to skin tight fit. We can adjust these lengths for no extra cost for most items. Just please add a short clear note to the comments of your order or e-mail us right away after placing your order so we can add the note to the cutting list for you.

1. Armpit to wrist (this will be the inside length of the sleeve)
2. Crotch to ankle (this will be the inside length of the leg, don't measure too low or it will bunch up at the ankles)
3. Bicep (measure around your arm a few inches below your armpit and do not flex)
4. Upper thigh (measure around one leg 3" from your crotch or where your thigh is thickest)

6. Corset sizing
Corset sizing is as much about your corset wearing experience as your physical size so it is hard for us to suggest sizing. We sell our corsets based on the size in inches of the smallest part of the corset waist (19-32"). Most people end up reducing their waists by 1-3" and have a 1-3" gap in the back of the corset when it is fully tightened. You'll want to pick a corset size that is 2-4" smaller than your natural waist for overbust corsets and 3-5" smaller than your waist for underbust corsets.

PVC Waspies and shorter corsets like our PVC Corset Belts are easier to wear very tightly since they don't cinch your ribs. If you don't want to lace tightly, have a larger stomach or a lot of muscle in your torso, or have never worn a steel boned or stiffer non stretchy corset, you will probably want to only buy a corset that is 2-3" smaller than your actual waist.

Corsets don't look good laced loosely since if they aren't snug on your chest you won't get any cleavage support. So you may want to consider a bra/bustier worn with an underbust instead of an overbust corset if you aren't sure what size will fit you best or need a more comfortable fit. If you want to hide the gap of skin under the lacing of your corset please consider adding a modesty panel to your order.

Additional measurements and custom clothing

We know it's hard to be 100% sure of the fit when ordering items online so please be sure to check your measurements using our size guide before ordering. We can not pick a size for you but we can help you decide which will be most likely to fit you best. Since our PVC fabric is stretchy if you are in between sizes we often recommend you choose the smaller size. Although we don't offer full custom sizing we can often make small changes for no extra charge. Please be sure to check in before or after ordering! There is usually no charge for adding or subtracting an inch or two from ankles, wrists, skirt hems or for going up or down a size for the arms of clothing to better match your bicep size.

Our clothing is made to order so exchanges are available for a 0-40% restocking fee depending on the item (returns or exchanges are not possible with intimate items). If its a popular item in an average size or colour its easy for us to resell it and there will be no or a very low charge. We can also alter most items to make them smaller for no charge other than return shipping. Feel free to ask for help if you have questions and remember to stand straight when measuring yourself!
