Selecting the Proper Size

Sillyfat sizing is different than traditional, in-store clothing sizes, so taking your measurements is essential! This handy guide will show you where to measure to ensure you get the best fit for your body. Because every Sillyfat item is different and because Sillyfat uses a variety of pattern designers, it's important to make sure to view the size chart on each item, because they may vary. We want your handcrafted clothing to fit you perfectly.

Take all measurements while wearing a well fitting bra and undies. Hold the tape snugly against your body, but don’t pull too tight! Breathe normally while measuring, don’t hold your breath or suck in your tummy.

Upper Bust

The measuring tape will wrap around your upper back, under your arms, and over your bust.

Full Bust

Holding the tape horizontally around your back and across the fullest part of your bust (this is typically across the nipple line).

Under Bust

The measuring tape will wrap around your back and under your arms, directly underneath your breasts.  The tape should fall right under your bra.


Measure around the smallest part of your waist. This is considered your “natural waist.”

Low Waist

Measure around your waist/back right at your navel line.

High Hip

The tape will go across your hip bones and across your lower back.


Measure around the fullest part of your hips, which is usually your butt. Keep the measuring tape horizontal all the way around.


Hold the tape at your crotch and measure to where you’d like the hem of your pants to fall.
