Fit and size

We all have different shaped bodies that change during the time. This is a wonderful thing to celebrate and nourish! And one way of celebrating it, is to find clothes with the right fit.

For finding out how TAUKO measure charts are created check the TAUKO Journal article, Size is more than a number. 

1. GET A MEASURE TAPE

Easy and nice to have in hand.

2. MEASURE YOUR BUST, WAIST AND HIP:

Your measures can change +/- 1-2cm during the day. Especially legs and belly will swallow little during the day.

3. MEASURE YOUR FAVOURITE GARMENT

Lay your trousers, dress or a top on a table and measure the half widths.

4. CREATE A LOOSENESS TABLE

Mark down measurements you took of yourself. Multiply by two the measures from your favourite item and mark them down.

Count the difference between your body size and your garment measures. 

This is your personal favourable looseness in the type of garment you used as a reference. And this is what you should aim for when you look for similar clothing. 

It could be fun to do several charts with different garments to see how some items are nicer oversized and some feel better when hugging tightly your figure.

5. COMPARE YOUR SIZE TO THE SIZE GUIDE 

Most of the products include a product measurement table and a size guide. 

Compare the measurements with your own charts and look for an equivalent. Please note that we are in the middle of resizing our product portfolio. The product measurements are your most convenient guide.
