Unsure of your size?
All bodies are different and thank goodness for that; but this also means that getting clothes to fit properly can take some work. At Zizzi, this is something we put a lot of thought and effort into. For us, plus-size clothing isn't just larger sizes - it demands a focus on fit and giving thought to the curves of women's bodies.
How to take your measurements 1. Measure around the bust 2. Measure around the waist 3. Measure around the hip
When you need to find the right size, it's best to start with your own measurements. In this regard, it’s a good rule of thumb that, when you need to find your measurements, you need to be able to place a finger between your body and the measuring tape. That way, when you wear clothes, they’ll fit comfortably without being tight. We work from three measuring points, as you can see in the illustration below.
To find the breast measurement, measure at the fullest place. The measuring tape should be horizontal and close to the body. If you are wearing a bra while measuring yourself, make sure that it is not too tight and the measurements become inaccurate.
When measuring your waist, the measuring tape should be placed at the smallest point of your waist. Make sure the tape measure is horizontal all the way around when reading the measurement. Here, too, the measuring tape should sit close to the body without being too tight. You will find the best measurements if you are not wearing clothes.
You will find your hip measurement by measuring at the widest place around your hips. Keeping the measuring tape horizontal and close to the body will give the most accurate measurement. We recommend that you measure directly on the body without clothes on.
Once you have found your measurements based on the three measurement points, you can compare them with the measurements and sizes in the table below. Our sizes range from a size 42, which also corresponds to our size S, to a size 62, which corresponds to our size XXXL. What all the styles have in common is that they have been developed in accordance with European measurement standards, and that each design is tried on and tested multiple times before it hits the shelves.
