 Fit tips

  • Measure around the fullest/largest part of the 3 key areas: bust, waist and hips.
  • If one area is bigger than another, consider the clothing type, style and silhouette. 
For example, if the measurements are Medium for the bust and waist and Large for the hips:
- For pants, which are fitted around the hips, order the Large
- For a dress that is fitted on top and flows from the waist, order the Medium
  •  Avon Signature Collection fashions fit true to the body measurements and size chart. They're designed to fit with ease so there's no need to "size up" to get a good fit.
