Apron Sizing Information

Apron Sizing from Bambino Amore - The Apron Makers
The Villains Collection

Apron sizing is a science. And the science of making a flattering + functional apron is one that Bambino Amore has perfected. Each apron is handcrafted to be "one-size-fits-most"  and comfortably fits up to a US size 14 with ties that are long enough to be tied in the front.

Women's Apron Size Measurements from Bambino Amore - The Apron Makers


WHAT THESE MEASUREMENTS MEAN FOR YOU

Length: this is the measurement from the top of the bodice heart to the bottom hem of the skirt of the apron -- or in the case of the double skirt aprons, the hem of the underskirt. This number will help you determine how much the apron will cover on your front side.
Skirt Length: this is the measurement of the skirt length from the bottom of the waist band to the bottom of the skirt hem of the apron -- or in the case of the double skirt aprons, the hem of the underskirt. This number will help you determine where the skirts of the aprons will fall on your legs -- they are designed to fall at about mid-thigh.
Width of the Bodice: this is the measurement of the heart shaped bodice at its widest point when laid flat. This number will help you determine how much of your bust will be covered by the bodice.
Waistband: this is the measurement of the waistband itself -- without the waist ties attached to it yet. This number will help you determine how far the waist band will wrap around your waist as well as how far the apron skirts will wrap around your hip area since this is the piece that the skirts are attached to.
Waist Ties: this is the measurement of each of the ties that are attached to the waist band itself. This number will help you determine if the ties are long enough to tie in the front -- if that is what you desire.
Neck Ties: this is the measurement of each of the ties that are attached to the bodice top. This number will help determine how much adjust-ability you will have when tying the apron -- ie., make the apron sit higher up or lower down.

HOW TO GET YOUR MEASUREMENTS

How-to Measure Yourself Correctly from Bambino Amore - The Apron Makers


      Bust: Wrap a measuring tape around the fullest part of your breasts, making sure to keep the tape parallel to the ground. This measurement determines your bust size.

      Waist: Wrap a measuring tape around your natural waistline, making sure to keep the tape parallel to the ground. This determines your waist measurement.

      Hips: Wrap a measuring tape around the fullest part of your hips, making sure to keep the tape parallel to the ground. This determines your hip measurement.

        Please keep in mind that these are aprons so they are NOT meant to wrap around the entire chest or waist.
