    I've been wanting to buy some latex for ages and I've fell in love with the Rubber Girl high waisted pants but I'm having some trouble with the sizing. I am a size 10 and it says small will fit a size 10-12 but I have a pretty big bum/hips. I'm not sure if I would be best going with the small or going up a size and getting a medium. At the size guide my measurements are equivalent to a medium but I am not sure if this refers to the unstretched latex or the size it is suited for. Can anybody help me? I'm really stuck and I want to buy these ASAP.

    Hi Xkaykay10,

    Here's an extract from Lovehoney's Fitting Guide for Latex Clothing:

    Rubber clothing sizes already take stretch into account, so if you’re a size 12-14, buy the size labelled to fit a size 12-14. When it arrives though, expect it to be smaller than you are. Just like you’d expect from a pair of Lycra shorts.

    As a general rule, the measurements of your latex need to be 2-3 inches smaller than your own to give you a great skintight fit. Women can get a little more squeeze factor out of their boobs, especially if there’s a zip-up front, so up to 4 inches smaller than your full breast measurement should work without flattening your chest.

    If you’re still not sure it’ll fit when it arrives, you can measure it to make sure. Take measurements from your new latex clothing at all the important points - like waist, hips, chest - and then measure yourself. If after measuring your garment you still think the item is too big or too small, just return it to us for a different size.

    I hope that helps! From what you've said, I would go with the small size. Remember, if it doesn't fit you can take advantage of Lovehoney's fantastic return policy to exhange it for a better fit.

    PS: As you posted the same thing twice, I've deleted one thread so people don't get confused.

    Thank you so much! I have bought a size Medium (12-14) and I hope these fit! I will measure them before I put them on and if they're too big I will exchange them for a smaller size. Thank you!

    If you're a size 10 you'll fit in a size 8 latex outfit quite easily and it will be really figure hugging.
