ASOS bikini sizing and measure charts
When it comes to swimwear, ASOS has its own label and, like all its other ranges, you can trust it to be updated to the latest trends. Indeed, the ASOS swimwear collection carefully reflects the hottest looks off the catwalks to make sure its customers enjoy the sun in style.
Browse the collection and you are likely to fall in love with many a bikini, especially in the fun ASOS pick ‘n’ mix collection of directional and off-beat bikinis, designed to suit every shape. But how do you make sure you get the right size? After all, there is no such a thing as an online fitting room, and if you are a first time buyer, how do you get an idea of how the brand fits?
First of all, as ASOS is a British company, its products are sized according to UK measures, so it is pretty straightforward: most bikinis come in sizes from 6 to 18 for both tops and bottoms.
However, swimwear like underwear require a figure wrapping fit that is not too tight and not too loose, but just right, otherwise both comfort and style are compromised.
So, in order to choose the correct size for your bikini tops and bottoms, you can measure your bust, taking care in measuring around its fullest part, then measure 20cm down from the natural waistline in order to get hips measure right.
Once you have taken down your measures, check them against the chart at this link: http://www.asos.com/Women/swimwear-and-beachwear-size-guide/?szgid=10&szgtid=1
If, for instance, you have a 34 inches bust and 38.75 inch hips, you will need a size 10 for the bikini top and a size 12 for the bottom.
Alternatively, some bikini tops come with bra sizes: from 30B to 36D, and from 30DD to 38F for the fuller bust tops. In this case, choose the same size you use for your bra, then go ahead and choose the bottom according to your actual measures, as described above.
