In 14+, sizing on 21 March, 2010 at 4:21 pm

sizing is always a difficult one, as everyone is different; this may sound simplistic, but it makes the world of difference when you’re trying to get something to fit.  My experience with generic sizing is that it’s always wrong, either the waist is too small, and anything to fit my waist is about three sizes too big on the hips, or the shoulders are way too broad, and i end up looking like i’m wearing a sack.   not quite the look i ever go for.

i’ve done some research on the net and amongst my friends, and this is what i’ve come up with as a comfortable fit up to a size 40.  i work on the assumption that women have boobs, tummies and thighs, all of which aren’t quite as firm as we’d like them to be, but there you go.  that plate of pasta looks better than a carrot.

this doesn’t at all mean i’m not willing to make clothes for women who have smaller boobs, or who do in fact have flat tummies 🙂
