It's true, I've turned into a tree hugger 🌳

by Jaclyn McCabe April 07, 2020

 

 

"Hug a tree!” My fellow single friend replied when I mentioned I hadn’t hugged another person in over three weeks, “It felt silly at first, but now I kinda like it.”

After our call, I stepped into my yard, looked both ways to make sure a neighbor wouldn’t see me, and hugged my cypress tree. And she was right! It felt silly at first, and then I kinda liked it. It was as if I could feel the healing powers of Mother Earth hugging me back.

I’m grateful to live in a city where the branches of the oak trees touch the earth so that I can climb into them for a little dose of self-care. 

Tell me, what does self-care look like for you today?

How to Measure

Bust
Measure around your body under your arms and over the fullest part of your bust.

Waist
Measure around your body at your natural waistline. Keep the measuring tape comfortably loose.

Hips
Measure around the fullest part of your hips, placing the tape around midway between your crotch and belly button.

Inseam
Take a pair of pants that fit you well and lay them flat. Measure the distance along the inner seam between the crotch and the hem.

 

Bra - How to Measure

Step 1: Measure your band size.

With your bra on, measure firmly around your rib cage, underneath your breast. The measuring tape should be parallel with the ground. Please reference chart below for band measurements.

Step 2: Measure your cup size.

With your bra on, measure the fullest part of your bust. This works best with a non-padded bra. Make sure the tape is taut and straight. 

Step 3: Calculate your bra size.

Subtract your band measurement from your cup measurement. Generally, for each inch in difference, the cup goes up by one size.
Range 29"–32" 33"–34" 35"–39" 39"–41" 42"–43" 44"–45"
Size 34 36 38 40 42 44

Example:

Step 1: 33" = 36 Band

Step 2: 38"

Step 3: 38" - 33" = 5", which is an E cup size in Prima Donna or DD in Elomi

Step 4: Refer to Sister size chart to see equivalent cup sizes by brand

All sizes are UK SIZE
