plus size chart

 

HowtheLook offers a vast selection of full-fashion choices by finding and working with many different vendors and brands. Therefore, we do not have a standard sizing scale. We feel strongly about removing the traditional limitations associated with full-fashion but do realize this can make online shopping a little more complex. Plus size chart is very important for you if you don’t want to buy the wrong size clothing, dresses or shoes.

Plus sizes are for big sized women, often designated by a W after the number such as 14W-24W. Some junior lines also come in plus sizes and would be uneven numbers higher than the usual range of 13: 15, 17, etc. Besides, instead of SML, Plus sizes are 1X, 2X, 3X, 4X. It’s hard finding your perfect fit in clothing: in one store you may be a size 2X, in another you may be a 4X. Unfortunately, there is no uniform sizing system for women. Each manufacturer has a different standard for their sizes. The best way to get a great fit is to know your measurements and consult a U.S. Women’s Plus Size Charts.

By using these general size charts, be sure to consult the manufacturer or retailer size chart to find your accurate size for the different brands. Many online retailers have either live or email customer service to chat with you about sizing and fit. Find your plus size chart now!

Well, this chart is meant to be used for a general guideline only. Consult size charts from individual stores and manufacturers to get a perfect fit.
