Normally, Japanese sizes are 1 to 2 sizes smaller than USA sizes. But REALISE swimsuits are small, even for Japanese sizes, so our size chart has been adjusted.

CAUTION: The Shiny Rubberized urethane coated material has limited stretch. It should not be over stressed, as the upper material can separate. See Fabrics for a full description. If you are between sizes, order a size up.

The SSW (Super Shiny Wet) knit material behaves like a conventional swimsuit knit. It is more stretchy than the shiny rubber material, and can be worn slightly smaller (up to about a half size, depending on your comfort).

A.     Height – stand up straight and measure from the crown of your head to the sole of your foot.

B.     Body Length – in a loop, measure from the highest point of the shoulder, beneath the crotch and back up to the starting point.

C.     Bust – take measurement over the fullest part of your bust line.

D.    Waist – measure around the narrowest part of your waistline.

E.     Hips – measure around the fullest part of your hips.
