Fit & Measurement Guidelines

Follow IGIGI on:      

How to Measure Yourself

1. Height
Measure from the top of your head to the floor, barefoot and stand up straight!

2. Arm Length
Measure from your shoulder point to where you would like your cuff to hit with your elbow bent at about a 45-degree angle

3. Bust Circumference
Level to floor measure around fullest part of your bust, making sure your measuring device does not sag in back.

4. Natural Waist
To find your natural waist, simply bend like a teapot to the side. The place where you bend is your natural waist. When you measure make sure you are level to the floor. Then do the same thing while sitting to be sure that it’s a comfortable fit. Check the measurement numbers - are they the same? If not, adjust the standing one to the sitting one. If you can’t breathe, you aren’t going to wear the garment!

5. High Hip
Level to floor measure around the highest point of your hipbone. This is considered the hateful tummy measurement. You know that spot that pants and skirt pull tight on us. Ugh.

6. Low Hip
Level to floor measure around the fullest point of your backside.

7. Thigh Circumference
You sit to take this measurement to make sure the thigh is spread (whimper) fully. Measure around the thigh at the crotch point.

8. Shoulder Width
Measure from shoulder point to shoulder point level to the floor

9. Garment Length
Measure from your center back neck point, or you most prominent vertebrae to where you want your garment hem to hit.

10. Bust Point
Measure from the middle of your shoulder to the nipple.

11. Bicep Circumference
Level to floor measure around fullest part of your upper arm with your elbow bent at about a 45 degree angle

12. Under Bust Circumference
Level to floor measure just under your bust

13. Drop Waist
Level to floor measure where you like to wear your pants, which is probably about 2-3” below your natural waist, with a loose tape.

14. Rise
Measure from the crotch to the waistband of your pants

15. Inseam
Measure from the crotch to where you would like the hem of your garment to hit. If you plan to wear heels with that garment, make sure to have those on for an accurate measurement.

Once you have your measurements, please go ahead and take a look at our size charts. Please note that most of our garments are cut more generous than are other brands.

Fit Guide & Size Charts

It is our goal to provide the best product we possibly can to our customers. A major part of that goal is to make sure that our products have the ideal fit to majority of customers. As women come in different body shapes, we have developed our products with that in mind. We have used a number of techniques to achieve that goal - "ShapeStylist" with 7 different body shapes, "Waist"/"No-Waist", and single/split sizes.

ShapeStylist

Knowing your body shape and dressing to highlight your assets are crucial to creating a wardrobe which will make you feel beautiful and confidant in the clothes that you wear no matter what the occasion is.

IGIGI ShapeStylist feature has information and outfit recommendations for 7 body shapes including diamond, rectangle, oval, inverted triangle, hourglass, triangle, and figure eight.

The main distinguishing attribute between the body types is the existence of a well-defined waist. Hourglasses, triangles and figures eights have a well-defined waist, while diamonds, rectangles, ovals and inverted triangles are more on the straight side with no well-defined waist.

Please use this link to visit ShapeStylist.

"Waist"/"No-Waist"

The main distinguishing attribute between the body types is the relation between waist size to hips and bust. 

Hourglasses, triangles and figure eights have more curvaceous silhouettes with their waist being smaller than their hips and bust. Their waists are more defined so we refer to these shapes as “Waist” shapes.

Diamonds, rectangles, ovals and inverted triangles have more of a straighter silhouette. Their waists are not much bigger than their hips and is not as well defined. We refer to these shapes as “No-Waist” shapes.

Taking this difference into account to offer the best fit possible we have created two sizing charts. One chart is for "Waist" shapes and the other is for "No-Waist" shapes.

Single/Split Sizes

Knits are usually used for cocktail and evening dresses and some separates, and are significantly stretchier than wovens. All IGIGI knits come in split sizes like size 14/16, size 18/20 etc.

From sketch to pattern to the actual garment, IGIGI collections are designed to specifically fit and flatter the plus-size body. IGIGI offers all garments in plus sizes 12-32.

When you are making your garment selections, it is important to pay attention to the type of fabric the garment is made of, your body shape and your size in order to achieve the best fit for a visually appeasing appearance.

"Waist" Size Chart

Hourglasses, triangles and figure eights have more curvaceous silhouettes with the waist being smaller then the hips and bust. The waist is more defined and we call these "Waist" shapes.

Please remember that the measurements provided are approximate. Keep in mind that some of our clothes tend to be generous; choose your size accordingly.

For dresses and tops, select the size that corresponds with your bust circumference measurement. For skirts and pants, select the size that corresponds with your waist and hip measurements.

Should your measurements fall between two sizes, consider your fit preferences:
- if you prefer a more fitted, body conscious look, choose the smaller of the two sizes.
- if you like a looser fit, choose the larger size.
