The Pink Moon is  here to help! Allow us to show you how to navigate the world of plus-size size charts and find the perfect fit for your top and bottom wear.

Plus Size Chart Explained in Detail

A women's plus size chart in India typically includes measurements for the bust, waist, hips, and sometimes even length. Each clothing brand may have its own unique size chart, so it's essential to refer to the specific chart provided by the brand you are interested in. We know it can get so confusing! It is important to note that Body measurements are taken exactly as per the actual figure with a finger loose between tape and body. Garment measures are 2 times bigger mainly around the chest, waist and hip, i.e to breathe easily and help movements. The measurements are usually listed in inches or centimeters. It would be beneficial to find out if the website you’re shopping on offers customisation of clothes!

Anyways let's get into the guide! 

Top Wear Plus Size Guide for Women

When choosing tops and dresses, remember that Indian plus-size garments are designed with some ease to ensure comfort and movement. If you prefer a loose fit, opt for a size larger than your measurements, especially for styles like kurta dresses, kaftans, and flowy tops. These styles generally have a relaxed fit without a fitted waist measurement. So you can be confident in your unique style! 

For a more fitted look, go for tops and dresses with a defined waist measurement. Styles with adjustable drawstrings or elasticated waists can provide a comfortable fit yet give you that snatched waist!

Plus size Bottom Wear

When it comes to bottom wear, such as leggings, palazzo, and skirts, choose options that fit comfortably at the waist. Elasticated waistbands or drawstrings are great features to look for, as they offer flexibility and ensure a better fit. Elastic waistbands are always a go-to if you’re looking for comfort but you want that perfect  and adjustable fit!

Measuring the Body & Finding the Right Fit

To determine your correct size, it's crucial to take accurate body measurements. Use a measuring tape and ensure it's not too tight or too loose when measuring. Here's how you can measure different parts of your body:

  • Bust: Measure around the fullest part of your bust, ensuring the tape is parallel to the ground.
  • Waist: Confused as to how to measure your waist? Simply put the measuring tape around the smallest part of your waistline. For reference, this is usually just above your belly button! 
  • Hips: To measure hips, place the measuring tape around the fullest part of the hips. This is usually about 7-9 inches below your waist. 
  • Length: Measure the desired length of the garment or follow the size chart's instructions for length measurement.

Remember that Indian plus-size size charts may differ from international ones, so always follow the brand's instructions for the most accurate fit. When shopping on a brand website, it’s easier to send a message/ Email/ Whatsapp asking for confirmation of sizes. At The Pink Moon, We call all our customers to confirm measurements and ask if any changes are required to their existing order! 

Shopping for plus-size clothing in India doesn't have to be a daunting task and we know how daunting it can get.  By understanding your body measurements and how to interpret an Indian plus-size size chart, you can confidently find stylish and comfortable clothing that compliments your figure. By knowing a little more about sizing charts in India, you make online shopping a little easier (so you can do it more often *hehe*) Embrace your curves, celebrate your individuality, and rock the perfect fit with confidence!
