I posted some images of my first samples for Cirquelle and have gotten some comments asking about what sizes things will come in. Since it's a new venture I can only invest so much into this project but I don't want to leave anyone out. I'm a little nervous about the sizing of things and want to make sure I get things right.
If you feel comfortable with posting it I would LOVE if you could share your measurements and whether you consider yourself a Small, Medium, Large or XLarge.
The pants and skirt will be stretchy so there is some flexibility which is great but I'd hate to have anyone miss out.
A thought for when you launch your website. Consider including a few pics of curvy women wearing your clothes. As an on-line shopper, I know it's one thing to read a listing for a size large and another (wonderful, reassuring) thing to see what an outfit actually looks like on a larger body.
Depending on the item (cut, stretchiness) I can wear an x-small to a medium. Measurements: Bust- 34.5"; ribcage at widest point- 27.5"; natural waist- 26.5"; low waist (at top of pelvic bone)- 32"; hips- 37"; inseam- 26"....lol, I had to get those out of a convo to AnnieLand cause I couldn't remember them. I'm 4'11" but if something is long I can get it hemmed :)
Love the samples, everything is looking great :D
I'm a short girl (5'2") with a small chest and larger hips (bust32 waist27 hips 38), i rarely have problems with tops and shirts, (except the ones that are obviously made for girls with bigger chests) my problems are always with pants if they fit in the waist the are way too tight in the hip and thigh area >.< I always find myself going for something that fits my hips then get the waist tailored to fit, which can often be expensive ; ;. When picking sizes i generally go for a small on top and a medium on the bottom.
