Fit & Fabric

At Contourwear we are all about your SHAPE not your size. We love all shapes and have designed clothing to flatter and fit each and every one. Our fabrics include a stretch component that works to adapt the garment to your specific shape. Fit is a very personal preference. In most cases – you can wear 2 sizes in any given style. The size that you choose to wear will reflect your personal style.

Each of our styles is cut specifically based on the type of fabric and stretch that it contains. Like each of your unique bodies – each of our designs will size a bit differently. Please read the fit notations that you will find in each description. We are available at any time to help you determine your size in a particular style – just contact us. We have tools available to recommend sizes as well as specific styles that will flatter you.

Tops Fit

Contoured Fit: our most streamlined fit, designed to hug close to the body and show off your curves.

Easy Contoured Fit: will follow the curves of your body with a bit more ease through the bodice.

Relaxed Fit: more room through the mid-section, tummy friendly or looser for layering.

Bottoms Fit

Sport Rise: 1-2″ below the belly button.

Modern Rise: 1/2″ – 1″ below the belly button.

Classic Rise: at or just above the belly button – closest to natural waist.

Back Rise: Because our clothing is made for movement and activity, we pay close attention to the back rise. The back will always cup higher than the front so you don’t have to worry about a panty peep-show when you bend over to grab your gear, suitcase or kid.

Inseams: in general inseams range from 30.5″ to 32″ depending upon size. Most bottoms have a 2-3″ hem that can be easily let out.

Fabric

We have spent years developing and sourcing the most amazing and luxurious performance fabrics in the world. We do not compromise in this area and our designs are closely tied to the properties of each fabric that we use. These supremely high quality fabrics are expensive and worth it, because you are. All of our fabrics must pass a rigorous testing process to assure that they are quick drying (we like them to line dry in less than 4 hours), machine washable, fade resistant and will wear well and comfortably.
