Sizing with Mountain Rose & Co.
General sizing for most items (check each item description): S 2-4/6, M 8-10, L 12-14, 1XL 16-18, 2XL 18-20, 3XL 20-22
***In general, pieces are true to size. If the description says "true to size" go with your true size. If if says "relaxed fit" you can go true to size or down 1 depending how you want it to fit.
We provide the measurements of every piece so you can compare your measurements and make the best sizing decision. Also, take note of the description as it will say if the fabric is stretchy or not. And sometimes, you may like to size up or down for various looks.
Judy Blue Jean Sizing:
Let’s say you normally wear a 12 in other brands. That means size down to 11 in Judy Blue!
If you fluctuate between 2 even sizes in other brands; you wear both 6 and 8 in other brands, then go with 7 in JB. So go with the odd size between your 2 normal even sizes.
My normal JB size is a 13. I am normally a size 14 (or 32) in other brands.
If you know your “even” size then go down 1 to the nearest odd size.
TIP: Use a fabric tape measure to take the following measurements OR use a string or ribbon and then measure it with a normal tape measure.
- Chest Measurement: Measure around the fullest part of your chest/bust while wearing your normal bra.
- Waist Measurement: Measure around the smallest part of your natural waist.
- Hip Measurement: Measure around the fullest part of your butt and upper leg (hip) area.
- Lay your favorite shirt/pants/dress flat on a flat surface and take the same measurements on those pieces. For example, the chest measurement will be armpit to armpit. You would then DOUBLE this number!
Now you have your measurements and the measurements of your favorite fitting pieces. Shopping is easy from here on!
