Normally, you will size down with FLAX. By that, I mean if you are a size medium in the "real world" of clothing, you will be a size small in FLAX. You will find a general guide to FLAX sizing in the "About FLAX" section on our website. Need even further advice on sizing, you can find more details in our FAQ section.
We at beachboutique.com recommend when at all possible to go to your nearest FLAX store and try on some FLAX pieces to determine what your size is in FLAX. If that is not possible or you do not feel comfortable with the sizing information provided, we recommend that you take your measurements with a tape measure. You should know:
- Your bust measurement around the widest portion of your chest.
- Your waist measurement around your natural waist.
- Your hip measurement at 7" below your natural waist. This is normally the widest part of your hip.
- Your pant length measurement is taken from your natural waist along the outside of your leg to one inch below the ankle.
Once you have your measurements, you may email us at email@example.com with your measurement request. You must choose a specific size and style for us to measure. We will take measurements for a maximum of three items per request. We will take these approximate measurements of the sizes and styles requested and email them back to you. You can then compare them to your measurements and make your sizing decision.
The best news of all is that FLAX rarely changes their specification on sizes. Once you determine your size, you can be fairly assured that the styles you select will fit correctly. As always at beachboutique.com, if something comes to you and does not fit correctly, Karen in our Returns Department is very helpful in assisting you in selecting replacement styles/sizes to have your FLAX wardrobe fit correctly.
