I recently placed my first order with Mango, and the second order is coming because I liked what I ordered. I was surprised by the Mango sizes and that is why I wanted to write on this blog to tell you the truth about the size guide.

Is the Mango size guide for Women correct?

The Mango size guide is correct. Therefore, the Mango size guide coincides with that of each size table, something that does not happen in other stores or fashion brands.

You have to know that Mango's clothes are well made. It is one of the stores whose clothes have surprised me the most because of the reliability that exists when it comes to getting the sizes right when you make your purchase. So buying at Mango, or at Mango Outlet is highly recommended.

Are the Mango sizes for Women large?

As you may already know, Mango previously had a plus-size collection called Violeta by Mango, which it ended up fusing with all of its clothes with all of its clothes.

So some Mango garments do have large sizes that are understood as those between L (106 centimeters of hip) and 4 XL (148 centimeters of hip).

If you want to buy large Mango garments, you only have to filter by size in the Mango clothing category you wish to buy to see the items in your size.

You have to bear in mind that if the model is wearing a wide garment, even if you choose your size it will be wide, oversize, but if the garment is tight and you take your size it will be tight.

You must pay attention to the photographs of each item to be clear about how the garment will fit.

Do they stretch the Mango sizes?

To know if a mango garment stretches, and although it is not recommended to buy sizes smaller than your body measurements, it is always good to know if the garment will be elastic in case we gain weight.

To do this you must look at the composition of the garment and check if it has elastane among its components. 2% elastane would already ensure you have an elastic garment. And 4% elastane is a very elastic garment.

What size to choose in Mango?

Both in Mango clothing for women, men, girls and boys, the way to know what size you should choose is the same.

To choose your size in Mango you must measure the body size that corresponds among those you will see below:

  • Pants, skirts and belts: measure your waist and hips, the most important measurement is the hip, because if the pants are smaller than your hips then they will not fit you well.

  • T-shirts, blouses and shirts: measure your chest contour since it is the widest measurement of the upper part of the body.

  • Underwear and swimwear: for the upper part measure your bust and underbust, to take the lower measurement measure the width of the hip.

  • Hats: for hats you should take the measurement of the perimeter of the head in the widest area.

  • Shoes: measure your foot length by resting it without shoes on a sheet of paper and outlining its silhouette with a pencil. Measure from the heel to the most protruding part in front.

After taking your measurement with a textile meter, if your hip size is 110 centimeters, for example, you should choose the largest size closest to 110 centimeters, which in this case corresponds to an XL.

Although you can even buy one size up if you don't mind that these are wide or that's what you want, but it is not recommended that you choose a smaller size because the garment will not fit well and it can tear.
