    Size Chart



    To measure your bust please wear a comfortable natural shape bra that is not padded, horizontally run the tape measure along the top of your bra at the back which should align with the fullest part of your bust.


    To measure your waist, you need to measure your waist at its smallest point. To find your natural waistline, bend to one side to find the natural indentation in your side. This is your natural waist. Horizontally run the tape measure around your natural waistline, please ensure tape measure is running parallel to the ground to get an accurate curvy girls waist measurement.

    Upper hip

    To measure your upper hip, you need to measure your tummy at its fullest point. Please do this measurement against bare skin and not over clothes. Measure comfortably and do not suck in or pull the tape measure really tight. Horizontally run the tape measure around the fullest part of your abdomen, please ensure tape measure is running parallel to the ground to get an accurate measurement.

    Lower hip

    To measure your lower hip, you need to measure your hips at its widest point. Please do this measurement against bare skin and not over clothes. Measure horizontally around the fullest part of your lower hip with the tape measure parallel to the floor. An uneven hip measure will skew your measurements.

    Body length

    To measure your torso or full body length measurement, you need to measure around your torso. Please do this measurement in just your underwear. Measure from the centre of your shoulder then run the tape measure diagonally across your body between your legs back up to the centre of your shoulder. You could possibly need 2 tape measures. Taking this measurement is a bit tricky so we highly recommend following our in-depth instructions on our blog post The Curvy girls guide on how to measure yourself correctly.

    Cup sizing

    Knowing what bust cup size you are will help you select a style that will fit your curvy body perfectly. Your cup size typically is the same cup size as the bra you are wearing. The cup size is actually worked out by the difference between the fullest bust measurement minus your under bust measurement. This can be used as a guide to work out what cup size you would be. 

    Understanding the Artesands plus + symbol

    On all Artesands size labels have the sizing listed with a plus symbol next to it. Their plus symbol means ‘Plus a little bit more’.

    Artesands had developed an internal only unique sizing system based on measuring true every day curvy women and not fashion models and we have built our sizing system and structure around a mid-level size of AUS 18 / US 14 and doing our grades up and down from this. If you compare an AUS size 12+ Artesands to a regular size 12 you will see that our measurements allow for a softer fit across our curves. We allow for a little bit more room through the mid-section and a little bit more at the top of your back and underarm and a bit more through the hips. If you have curves and you try an Artesands swimsuit you will love how our ‘plus a little bit’ more sizing structure sits softer on your body and doesn’t dig in creating any bulgers over the top of the swimsuit rubbers. The ‘plus a little bit more’ does not affect the support the swimsuits at all, if anything the ‘plus a little bit more’ increases the support, by allowing the swimsuit to sit in the correct position on your body and provide the best support for where we each as individuals need it.
