Sizing is one of the most difficult things when it comes to fashion, especially when we’re talking about plus sizes.
Unfortunately these days there are no standards when it comes to sizing so now there is much confusion about the question we all dread:
‘What size am I?
Standard sizing vs Plus sizing
Andrea Lucy Designs is doing something a bit different and a little confusing.
We are both standard AND plus.
Usually a Plus Size brand will have generous sizes which is amazing for anyone size 16+ but there are a band of sizes (12/14/16) that struggle to identify as either standard or plus size. I myself fall into this category and I know how frustrating it can be not fitting into standard or plus sizes. Being too small for plus sizes but just needing an extra size up in a standard size that isn’t always available. (many brands stop at size 12/14/16)
What does this mean exactly?
It means that Andrea Lucy Designs sizes 12 through to 16 are ‘standard sizing’ and sizes 18 to 24 are ‘plus sizing’. Technically, the only difference between the two types of sizing is that ‘plus sizing’ is a bit more generous between sizes than ‘standard sizing’.
The best way to figure out your size is to take your measurements and compare them to the size table below. If your measurements are between sizes, always go with the bigger size.
