If you have previously received one of our FITKITS you will notice that we have changed our sizing in the size chart.
I have been back and forth over what is the right thing to do here. I originally created the Gita Omri size chart based off of pattern making sizing. I truly believe that size shouldn't matter and that the number in our garment is just a tool to help us buy clothing. This size chart makes it easier to go from development to market.
As a woman, I have spent my life trying to live up to my belief that size doesn't matter but Im human and I don't always feel so logical and confident.
As there is no standardized size chart many companies create their own vanity size charts in the hopes that the consumer feels better about their size and shops more. I believe vanity sizing is a real negative practice that feeds into our self critique and ridiculous old way of thinking that sizes equals our worth.
That being said, this is the norm. I believe it will do more bad than good and confuse many woman to try and change the sizing system right now. Therefore we have adjusted our size chart to reflect the current womenswear market.
Either way, again the size tag is just a tool to help us direct you to the best Gita Omri garment for your body. We are not plus, not minus, just womenswear!
Compare your bust, waist, hip and inseam measurements with our Size Guide to help you determine what size to buy.
Measure across the fullest part of your bust. The measurement should be flat and not too snug.
Measure around your natural waist, which lies between your bottom ribs and your hip bones. For the most accurate measurement, breathe deeply, relax your stomach and position the measuring tape around your waist, leaving about a quarter inch of slack.
Measure your hips at their widest diameter. (The hip bones are often not the widest point; it’s usually one or two inches lower, where your butt is at its fullest.)
Stand with your feet shoulder width apart while wearing athletic shoes. Measure from the top of your inner leg to the bottom of your inner ankle. Repeat the process on the other leg and average the two for a more precise inseam measurement.
With arm relaxed at your side and slightly bent, measure from center back neck, over point of shoulder, down the outside of the arm to the wrist.
