Measureat hip over your hip bonesand ensure the measuring tape is straight.
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 feelssnug but still comfortableyou 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 bea snug fit (best for watersports) or a tad looser (best 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 highabove the hip or 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.
