How to measure yourself:

First up, we measure the bust. This is done on the biggest part of your bust, like in the picture below.

Next up is the waist. This is measured at the smallest part of your waist, as can be seen below. All our products are high-waist unless otherwise stated, so your natural waist needs to be measured. 

Lastly, we measure the hips, and like before, this is always at the widest part of your hips, as can be seen below.

With a better idea of what your measurements are, it makes choosing the correct size, that much easier.

NB: We encourage that you use the largest part of your body to determine your size eg:

  • if your bust = small,
  • waist = small
  • but hips = medium 

In the example above, we would recommend that you rather buy your desired clothing item in medium. Alternatively, you can connect with us on info@barbaramckenzie.com about your unique size and we will confirm if your item can be made specially for you.
