Maternity / Nursing Size Chart
Maternity / Nursing Tops and Dresses
Whether it’s a maternity top or nursing dress, determine your size based on your current bust measurement. Measure around the fullest circumference of your bust and refer to the chart below to get the best possible fit. If you are in-between sizes, we suggest choosing the next size up, particularly if you are in the early term of your pregnancy.
Important: do not use your bra size number as a reference for size selection, ensure to measure your bust at the fullest circumference for a more accurate fit.
Each MEV size is designed to accommodate an anticipated extent of growth, particularly around the bust and belly circumference. Crafted in high quality stretch fabrics, our designs shall fit you from when you start showing (probably around 16 weeks) and ideally, to the full term of your pregnancy.
Through the course of your pregnancy, your bust measurement may increase from one size to another, in which case, we recommend that you re-fit.
Measuring for bottoms
Determine your fit for our maternity bottoms by measuring your hip size (note: this is not your waist measurement). For any bottom style, be it shorts, skirts, pants, jeans or leggings, measure your current hip size at the fullest and then refer to the chart below for the corresponding MEV size.
Each bottom size – determined by your hip measurement - is designed with a tolerance for expansion in belly circumference which we expect to accommodate you to full term. Through the course of your pregnancy, your hip measurement may increase to the next size range, in which case, a re-fit is recommended to assess the need for a new sizing.
Our bottoms are constructed with waistbands that stretch for anticipated growth per hip size. Care and attention is paid to subtle but critical details such as technical proportions and specifications that must be uniquely considered for the pregnant shape.
Measuring for bra
For stretchable, knitted bras, measure around the fullest circumference of your bust and refer to the chart below to get the best possible fit.
For non-stretch or non-knitted bras that require a cup fitting, first put on your favourite bra that you think makes your breasts the right shape and feels most comfortable. Next, measure the circumference around your ribcage, just below your breasts. Add 5 to this number to get your band size. If the resulting band size is an odd number, round up to the next even number.
The second measurement should be taken around the fullest part of your bust with your favourite bra on. Next subtract your band size from this measurement to derive your cup size. With the final number, refer to the bra cup size chart below.
