How to find the right Exelle size?

Start by measuring your body. When doing so, wear tight-fitting underwear and a well-fitting bra. When measuring, keep the tape measure around the body horizontal. Do not pull the tape measure too tight. If necessary, ask someone else to help. Take your measurements regularly to be sure you always have the right size.

  1. Chest
    Measure the bust at the fullest part.
  2. Waist
    The smallest circumference between chest and hip, where your body bends sideways.
  3. Hip
    Measured the hips at the fullest part

Sizes in centimeters. Indicated in each case is the maximum size at which the above size fits.

Your body measurements may correspond to different sizes in our table. Then choose the size that matters most with the garment you are interested in.

Garment fit

Keep in mind that the shape of an item also defines its fit. Tight fit items fit snug, and loose fit items in the same size are worn loose around the body. Take notice of the description for each item. Our fit information describes the fit from top to bottom.

For example, with the shirt Saskato:
Fit: small/small A-line fit | Shoulders: narrow | Chest: narrow | To bottom: A-line



You want to buy a shirt. These are your measurements:
1.Chest 138 cm
2.Waist 130 cm
3.Hip 153 cm
In terms of chest you are a size L, in terms of waist and hip in size XL
Take notice of the fit of the shirt: is it flared or A-line fit, (e.g. Saskato, Tronika) then you will be fine with a size L, the shirt flares from the armpit, and will still be roomy enough at the waist and hip.
However, if you want a fitted shirt, slim fit (e.g. Irmal), then size XL might be a better choice. A size L will otherwise be very tight around the hip.

You want to buy pants. These are your measurements:
2.Waist 110 cm
3.Hip 120 cm
For the waist, you will need size M.
The hip size also fits well in size M, in this case choose size M.
