Tangle Syx will be closed for vacation from Wednesday, May 25 through June 5, 2022. All new orders will be processed after we return.

We use sizing that makes sense!

The current system of sizing women's clothing pretty much sucks. One brand's medium is another brands large, and numbered sizing is even less consistent. So we're trying something different. Our sizes are the same as your measurements.

Our bias-cut shirts and dresses are sized by Bust Measurement. So if your bust measures 40", you order a Bust Size 40. Just like waist sizing for mens pants. (If a man has a 34” waist, he orders size 34 pants. It makes so much sense, and yet…)

Will our garments fit everyone? No, but they will fit most women, as our bias cut styles are designed to fit closely around the bust, then drape down over the waist and flare out around the hips. 

For those who want a bit more info, we compiled a size chart below. 

 How to Use this Guide:

  • Measure your bust, waist and hips (wear one of your everyday bras, keep that tape measure level, and don't hold your breath)
  • Find your bust measurement under "Bust Size" in the column on the left
  • If you are between sizes, choose the next size up for a looser fit or the next size down for a closer fit. 
  • Check your waist and hip measurements against the measurements on the chart. If your hip and waist are the same or less than the measurement listed, this size should work for you. If not, contact us for a custom order. 
  • The US Sizing (Large, 14-16, etc.) is ONLY a guide for those who need a frame of reference for our sizing system. Do not order based on the size you normally wear. 
  • Place an order for your Bust Size
  • Do a happy dance and wait for your garment to arrive.  :)

 As always, please contact us if you need help determining your size or have sizing questions or need a size not listed here.

How to Measure

Keep the tape measure level with the floor. Looking in a mirror helps with this.
  • Bust - While wearing one of your everyday bras, measure around the fullest part of your bust. The tape measure should be snug, but not tight.
  • Waist - Measure around the smallest part of your waist. 
  • Hip - Stand with feet a few inches apart, and measure around your butt and the fullest part of your hips.
