Ladies - want to find your perfect fit? Listen up!
We all know how hard it can be to find the right size for that perfect fit, so here are some pointers!
Know your numbers!
The key to finding perfect fitting clothing as a petite woman is to know your measurements! Use a tailor's measuring tape to measure yourself in your underwear for best results.
Bust: Measure around the fullest part of your bust, keeping the tape nice and parallel to the floor
Waist: Measure the full circumference around your natural waistline, between your belly button and your ribs. Make sure the measuring tape is snug, but not too tight or too loose.
Hip: With your feet together, measure around the widest part of your body - make sure that the tape stays parallel to the floor and level from front to back.
Inseam: Measure from the highest part of your crotch down to your ankle bone.
Rise: The measurement from your crotch to your natural waistline (you'll find on clothing that the crotch seam is closer to the front than the back, so front rise is shorter than back rise!)
Ankle: Measure the circumference of your ankle just above the bone. As our leggings are stretchy, the measurements given below are minimum ankle size and will stretch!
|UK Size||Waist (cm/in)||HIP (CM/IN)||INSEAM (CM/IN)||Front Rise (cm/In)||Ankle Diameter (cm/IN)|
(please note, these come up small and are designed to fit up to cup size C)
|UK SIze||Bust (cm/in)||WAIST (cm/in)|

Wearing: Resolute Leggings in Periwinkle Blue, Resolute Tank in Jet Black
"I'm 5'0 dead on, with average to short legs proportionally, and these are full length on me, right down to the ankle bone. As I'm in between sizes, I wear a size 8 for most activities like running and going to the gym so I'm nice and supported, but when I'm around the house I sometimes wear a size 10 for a little more of a looser, comfortable fit."
Wearing: Resolute Leggings in Jet Black
"The size 14 fit great around the waist and give plenty of coverage so that I'm not falling out anywhere! At 5'2, the length is great and sits just above my ankle bone."
