… looking at the Wolford size chart
My sweet fan David from Canada offered to send me Wolford pantyhose, as you already know from the previous article.
I told him to buy size Medium and not anything smaller then that, since Medium is what I usually take in all other brands.
When that pantyhose arrived, I looked at the back and for a moment there got scared. Could it be that Medium is too large for me?
The size chart on the package didn’t mention the height at all, but according to my waist and hips measurements I would be XS!
My waist is about 65 cm maximum, depending on my what I eat that day, and my hips are always 90 cm.
Medium, according to those numbers, would fit a woman that is approaching plus size parameters in terms of her dress size.
I already had a thought creep through my mind that this pantyhose will be too big. When I tried it on, Medium was a perfect fit, it couldn’t be better.
So, what’s going on?
I would say that the most important parameter for hosiery sizes is your HEIGHT, given that your weight is proportional. My height of 170 cm (or 5’7” for North America) corresponds to size Medium. However, for clothing like skirts and tops I usually take XS!
I went to the local Wolford store today and another slim and somewhat tall lady like me was assisting me with my questions.
I told her about this sizing confusion and she laughed, according to the chart she’d also be a totally wrong size. Just like me, she wears Medium, but according to the chart she’d be somewhere between Small and Extra Small.
Wolford is changing their size chart to show the fit more accurately. This time they display the HEIGHT of the person too, not just waist and hip measurements. She pulled out a new size chart and of course I snapped a picture for you.
Yes, according to this new chart I am for sure size Medium!
