Tips on Measurements-Shopping Swap.com!

Have you ever wondered if something may fit? Or what the actual bust measurement is? Or how to better gauge what you're thinking of buying?  

We have racked our brains, and thought it would be helpful to list our measurements of our in-house women's mannequins!  These mannequins are unique to Swap.com; but the dimensions can most certainly make a difference in making that YES to a purchase!  

How to take some at home measurements and compare to Swap.com!

Tools you will need: An assistant and a measuring tape.  

Bust - Measure the bust line at the fullest part of your chest. Pull the measuring tape as tight as you can without creating maximum tension across your bust. While you are being measured, your arms should be at your side and relaxed.

Waist - Wrap the measuring tape around your torso, at the smallest part of your waist. Typically this is an inch or so above your belly button and is also known as the natural waistline.
