General Apparel Measurement Chart
To assist you in confirming your correct size, below are our measurement charts in centimeters.
Measurements should be taken as follows:
Bust: Measure around the fullest part of you bust.
Underbust: Measure around your rib cage, immediately under your bust.
Waist: Measure around your natural waistline - this is usually the narrowest point on your waist.
Hips: Measure around the fullest part of your low hip - this is approximately 20cm below your natural waistline (the tape should run across the middle of your buttocks).
Torso: Start the measuring tape at the mid-point of your shoulder (between your shoulder point and neck), run the tape measure down your back and up through your legs toward the starting end of the tape measure. Depending on the length of your tape measure it is likely that you won’t be able to get the ends of the tape to meet - there will be a gap. If so, measure the gap and then add this to the overall tape measurement length. The total will give you your torso length.
Please note, Matteau swimwear is designed to fit firm on the body to eliminate bagging and wrinkling. Your briefs/maillot will feel firm when pulling them up and over your hips, but once adjusted into place will provide some compression on the body. If you prefer a less firm fitting swimsuit, we recommend that you order a size larger than your regular size.
