  • athletic / rectangle / banana shaped figure (shoulders, bust and hips are around the same size, waistline is somewhat defined).

All Italian fit shirts in our shop are named after Italian cities:

Finding the right size

In order to pick out the perfect size for you from our collection of women’s fitted shirts, please measure yourself. The important measurements are bust, waist and hips.

Use a fabric measuring tape, and if possible, have another person help you.

  1. Bust: wrap the tape under your arms around the fullest part of your bust. Preferably wearing a bra.
  2. Waist: measure around your natural waistline, halfway between your waist and hip.
  3. Hip: standing with your heels together, measure around the fullest part of your hips.

Now compare your measurements with our size charts and see which size fits you best.
