Clothing Measurements and Fit:
Unless stated otherwise, garment measurements were taken with the garment laid flat and doubled to reach the actual measurement. When comparing a garment's measurement to your own, please allow 1-2 inches for breathing room and proper fit. So, your body measurements need to be 1-2 inches smaller than the garment's.
A good way of determining if a garment will fit you is to take an item of clothing of your own that fits you well, lay it flat and measure it. Then compare those measurements to the measurements in the listing. If you have any other questions on fit or measurement, I'm more than happy to advise customers before a purchase.
