Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is an Hourglass?
A woman with an hourglass shape has hips and bust that are about equal with a narrow waist that is more than 9" inches smaller than her bust & hips. For example, if you have a 30" waist and your hips and bust are 40", then you have a classic hourglass figure. For more details, see the Wikipedia article on female body shapes.
2. What is Hourglass Heaven?
It will be a heaven if you're an hourglass! :) If you have an hourglass figure, you know how difficult it is to find clothes that fit and look good. All of the clothes will be designed to fit and look good on you. No pants that are too loose in the waist or too tight in the hips. No shirts that are either way too snug to be work-safe or so big they hide any trace of your waist. Dresses that actually fit at the bust, waist and hips! Can you imagine that?

3. Will I fit into your clothes?
We carry a wide size range. Our XXS fits a 0/2 and our XXL fits a 24/26.
Do you have small waist? If your waist is about 10-13" smaller than your hips and bust, then you will fit into our clothing. In fact, our clothing is made specifically to fit you!
Here's our size chart:
We recommend choosing your size based on your largest measurement (bust or hips). The items do stretch, so if you're close to the measurements you will likely fit.

4. What bra size does your clothing fit?
Hourglass Heaven clothing is designed to fit DD to J cup best, but I have customers as small as B cup who are very happy with how great the clothes fit!*
Bra sizes vary a lot by manufacturer and by region.
If you're used to squeezing into department store bras, then you're probably wearing a DD or a DDD (and the band size may be too big for you).
If you're wearing a well-made bra designed to fit larger cup sizes you may wear a E, F, G or H in European sizes or a H, I, J or K in North American sizes.
*If you are smaller than DD, we recommend wearing a good, padded bra.
