Judy Blue Sizing Help
We know buying denim online can be scary, but we have an entire team of fit models (all shapes and sizes) who try on all of our denim before we launch it and give sizing recommendations. You will often read or hear us reference how to compute your denim size off of your true Denim Size.
Regular Denim Sizing:
Your denim size can be computed like this: Take your even size in a department store and size down to the next odd size. This is your true size. For example, Ali is a 14 regular in department stores and her true denim size is a 13. Amy is a 12 in department stores and her true denim size is an 11. Jill is a 10 in department stores and her true denim size is a 9.
Plus Denim Sizing:
Your true denim size can be computed by taking your even size in a department store and going down to the next size. That is your true denim size. For example, Anna is a 16w in department stores and her true denim size is a 14w. If you are a 20w in department stores, your true denim size is an 18w. If you are in between sizes (meaning you can wear two sizes in department stores depending on the brand), go with your smaller size to be your denim size.
If we tell you to stay true to size, stay with your true denim size. If we tell you to size down one size, size down one from your denim size. We might tell you to size down two sizes (we know that’s scary, please trust us!) or size up a size. Sizing up a size would mean that if your true size is an 11, you would get a 13.
