Meredith prides itself on the comfort and fit of our collections to ensure your happiness. Here are some pointers enabling you to select your garment size.

Getting prepared:

  • Before you take your measurements ensure you select the appropriate under garments.
  • If you are measuring for pants, then wear the appropriate footwear.
  • Look at the image of the garment, observe how it sits on the model or mannequin. For example, is it a waisted pant or does it sit below the waist?
  • Choose the right time to take your measurements – a couple hours after a meal is best.
  • Finally, if possible find someone to assist you.

The critical measurements are the bust, waist and hip. Relax and don’t worry about what the tape measure says, remember comfort is key, so be honest with yourself. When measuring the critical areas of the body; add a centimetre or so for comfort and match your measurements to our size chart.

The Measurements:

  • Bust: Measure your bust line around the fullest part. Remember make allowances for comfort.
  • Waist: The wearers pant or skirt waist measure can vary. If it is a ‘true waisted’ garment, measure at the smallest part of the torso. If it is a mid-rise pant or a skirt with no waistband then measure 5 centimetres below the true waist.
  • Hip: For a comfortable fit measure around the fullest part of the hip area.
