Know Your Size
To ensure that our garments fit you well, it is important that you pick the right size. In India, we do not have a uniform size code based on anthropometric studies. Each brand is left to its own methods to arrive at a suitable size set. After extensive research, we have devised a size set that has been honed to perfection in the last 11 years.
If you have worn a Mantra earlier, you don’t have to go through the elaborate ritual that we have suggested below. But if you have gained/lost weight or if you are planning to buy a Mantra for the first time, we’d advise you to follow one of these procedures –
A good measuring tape(in inches), A notepad, A patient friend
Wear well-fitted clothes. Measurement taken over baggy or heavy clothes like jeans or corduroys can be misleading.
Stand up straight against a wall and spread your arms out wide
Ask your friend to measure you
Jot down the measurements in inches in the given format.
Our size chart has 3 measurements in each category.
- Body measurements - circumference of the body at that level.
- Garment measurements – circumference of the garment at that level which should be about 1-2 inches more than your body measurements.
- Garment measurements (front only) – Seam to seam measurements of the front side of the garment.
|Garment (front only)||17||18.5||20||21||22||23.5|
|Garment (front only)||15||16.5||18||19||20||21.5|
|Garment (front only)||18||19.5||21||22||23||24.5|
*Measurements may vary based on the design and style of the garment. Please check measurement chart of the garment you have selected for style-wise variations.
No two bodies are alike, but we can classify them broadly into a few categories.
Your body type would be -
Apple – if your chest measures wider than your hip.
Pear – if your hip measures wider than your chest.
Hourglass - if your chest and hip measurements are almost the same and you have a very narrow waist.
Banana – if your chest and hip measurements are the same and your waist is just an inch or so narrower.
Our sizes will suit you best if you are a pear type (thankfully most Indian women fall into this category) or an hour glass type. If you are a banana type, our sizes will fit you but will be a bit loose at the waist. If you are an apple type, you will not be happy with our fit. We plan to come up with a size set to suit your body type later, but for now, we are sorry to disappoint you.
