Hi all! Rather simple question but I can’t seem to find the answer anywere! When the size guide says bust 34-36 do they mean under the boobs (ie. 34 for me since I wear 34D bras) or measuring over the boobs?! Sorry, silly and rather basic question!
Yeh it would be the same as a bra size but I did find in the plus range they run small don’t know about the standard range. I ordered a 1x/2x which is equivalent to a 40-44 bust but it was more like a 36-38 bust to be honest.
Thanks @GlasgowGal. So I would be a M for my bust, XL for waist and L for hips! That’s going to be a bit annoying! Maybe I should just go for a L and hope for the best. I wish LH would sell the bras and knickers separately so I could get larger knickers than bra!
Yeah it can sometimes be a bit tricky when our bodies can vary so much from top to bottom.
This is why I love the stretchy items instead of underwired. They cling to the body in all the right places and really exaggerate those sexy curves.
I just got a couple of mini dresses that are really stretchy. They fit beautifully. I just feel more confident with something more structured up top - not because I’m overly large but just because of my shape I suppose. I often wear layers with bras under baby dolls etc but I think I’ll just have to be brave with these new dresses since I don’t think they would look quite right with a bra. I’m sure my OH won’t be complaining!
I think it is the overbust measurement
As Brenna said, bust measurement refers to over bust size. The under boob would normally be called underbust measurement, or back measurement sometimes
The inch measurement is the band size, and the cup size is obvious (at least i hope it would be).
