We want your clothes to feel comfortable, so no need to pull your tape measure too tight. Try to take your actual body measurements rather than measuring over your clothes. It is often easier to have a friend help you take measurements. Here are a few tips to help you take accurate measurements:
- Bust: Place the tape measure under your arms, over your shoulder blades and across the fullest part of your bust. Remember to breathe out first.
- Waist: Measure around your natural waist.
- Hips: Measure around the fullest part of your bottom at the top of the leg.

Lyocell, also known as its branded name TENCEL™ is a sustainable fabric that is regenerated from wood cellulose. This fiber is one of the most environmentally friendly regenerated fabrics, namely because it is sustainably sourced from eucalyptus trees, which don’t require pesticides or irrigation and use less land and water than cotton production. It is also produced in a “closed-loop system,” in which the majority of chemicals and solvents used in the process to break down the wood pulp are recovered and recycled with minimal waste.
