Size and Fit

We know choosing the right size and fit might be tricky. If you need any help in choosing the best fit or size, please don’t hesitate to contact us at info@liljathelabel.com! We have also attached specific garment measurements on each product page so that you can compare the measurements of a certain product with your body or with an existing similar item you may have. Remember we’ll always be more than happy to help!

 

TOPS

 

Please note that the cup size is only a suggested size and also depends on other factors, such as your band length and individual shape of your body. Please align your cup and bust measurement with the sizing chart and the sizes you usually wear in similar items. Measure bust over the fullest part (usually over the nipples) when wearing an unpadded bra or a bikini top. This is also up to individual preference: do you like your top to have more coverage and therefore would prefer a larger size? Or would you like your top to be tighter therefore providing a bit more support, but less coverage and therefore could opt for a smaller size? Or if you’d prefer to have both, choose an adjustable style in a larger size.

The same sizing chart applies for our activewear items. This includes all our sports bras and activewear crops.

Please note that the cup size is just an estimate and many factors can affect your cup size. Always first refer to the bust measurement in cm or inches and then check out the cup size for reference.

BOTTOMS

 

Measure your hips from the fullest part of the hips and ensure the measuring tape is straight. Note that this point is well below your hip bones and does not reflect where the bikini bottoms sit on your body.

Please note that bottoms might feel a bit tight/snug when worn for the first time. Swimwear fabric always loosens up and gets a little softer in use: by choosing a size that feels snug but still comfortable you ensure that the bottoms don’t get too loose after a while.

If you are in between sizes, think of whether you like your swimwear to be a snug fit (best for watersports) or a little bit looser (many prefer this for tanning and chilling). If you are in between sizes, you can probably wear both, but it’s up to you which fit you’ll prefer. Also think of whether you’d like your bottoms to sit high above the hip or lower over the hip bones? If you like a low fit, you can opt for a larger size than someone who prefers a high fit, even though your hip measurement would be the same, and the other way around.

The same sizing chart applies for our activewear items. This includes the long tights and our biker shorts.

ONEPIECES

 

If you are tall, have longer torso and/or are in between sizes, we recommend choosing a size up in our onepieces. Otherwise choose your normal size. Tallness of course depends on many things and when it comes to onepieces, what matters is the length of your torso, so therefore we can’t give an exact estimate on what sizes people of different heights should choose. However, if you are unsure, choosing one size up usually doesn’t make the suit too loose but can give extra comfort with a couple more cm’s in the length!

Please note that onepieces might feel a bit tight/snug when worn for the first time. This is normal! Swimwear fabric always loosens up and gets a little softer in use: by choosing a size that feels snug but still comfortable you ensure that the suit doesn’t get too loose after a while.

If you are in between sizes, think of whether you like your swimwear to be a snug fit (best for watersports) or a little bit looser (many prefer this for tanning and chilling). If you are in between sizes, you can probably wear both, but it’s up to you which fit you’ll prefer.
