(28, 32, 36)40, 44, 48{52, 56, 60}“
(71, 81.5, 91.5)101.5, 112, 122{132, 142, 152.5}cm

Garment Full Chest Measurement:
(26.5, 31.5, 35)38.5, 42.5, 45{50.5, 53.5, 56}“
(67.5, 80, 89)98, 108, 114.5{128.5, 136, 142}cm

This top is designed with 1.5- 6”/(4-15cm) of negative ease at the full chest. To choose your size, subtract 1.5”- 6”/(4-15cm) from your full chest measurement and choose the closest garment full chest measurement size. If you have a large chest in comparison to your upper chest, subtract the suggested ease from your upper chest measurement to choose your size.
Because of the stretchy nature of ribbing, sizing for this top is very flexible. Most people will be able to go down one or even two sizes in order to achieve preferred fit. The more negative ease you choose, the more fitted the top will be.
