Size Guide

Firstly, find out (or check) your size:

Please read and follow the guide below to help you choose swimwear in the correct size for your body. It does make a real difference to fit and appearance. We at Monaco Beach have expert swimwear knowledge and, if you’d like us to, will help you find the right size. Please just call or email.

 

Sizing - This is how the professionals do it!

When buying cruise and swimwear it's very important to choose the right size to avoid the need to return goods. We strongly recommend that you measure yourself before placing your order (as various things can change over time!), double check your measurements and then refer to the size charts below.

The size charts below are a guide only but should help you to order the correct size. If you find measuring yourself difficult then do ask a friend or relative to help you, and perhaps return the favour for them!

A. Bust

Take the measurement across fullest part of the bust and across shoulder blades, keeping the tape parallel to the floor and your arm relaxed at your sides.

B. Waist

To measure around the waistline, bend to one side to find the natural crease of your waist and measure from this point. Allow a little room for a comfortable fit.

C. Hips

Measure your hips at the fullest part. Stand with your feet together to get a more accurate measurement.

D. Inside Leg

For trousers only, measure from the top of the inside leg to the point where the trousers are normally worn against the shoes.

 

 

Now compare your measurements to the chart below…and select the best match.

Clothes Size

Size and fit can vary from brand-to-brand and depends on the cut, fabric and styling of the garment. They can also vary by country for example, when compared with UK sizing, Italian swimwear is often a noticeably smaller fit. For ease and simplicity, we quote the UK equivalent size wherever possible.

Cup Sizes

Swimwear has much more elasticity and therefore is more ‘forgiving’ than lingerie. This means that you don’t have to be as exact about the fit, and can usually get away with a slight cup size variance e.g. by going up or down one cup size. Wired cups are more supportive for larger busts, while non-wired costumes are more flexible and can often accommodate a wider range of cup sizes.

The handy chart below should also help you make your choice of CUP SIZE.
