Understanding the Artesands plus + symbol
On all our Artesands size labels we have the sizing listed with a plus symbol next to it. Our plus symbol means ‘Plus a little bit more’.
At Artesands we developed an internal Artesands only unique sizing system based on measuring true every day curvy women and not fashion models and we have built our sizing system and structure around a mid-level size of AUS 18 / US 14 and doing our grades up and down from this. If you compare an AUS size 12+ Artesands to a regular size 12 you will see that our measurements allow for a softer fit across our curves. We allow for a little bit more room through the mid-section and a little bit more at the top of your back and underarm and a bit more through the hips. If you have curves and you try an Artesands swimsuit you will love how our ‘plus a little bit’ more sizing structure sits softer on your body and doesn’t dig in creating any bulgers over the top of the swimsuit rubbers. The ‘plus a little bit more’ does not affect the support of our swimsuits at all, if anything the ‘plus a little bit more’ increases the support, by allowing the swimsuit to sit in the correct position on your body and provide the best support for where we each as individuals need it.
