And you don’t want this thing to happen to you, right. For that, exact measurement is needed from your tailor or by measuring yourself.
The secret of buying online is the exact measurement of yours. It is the primary concern for online shopping and getting the actual size.
Look at their sizing chart and note down what you need to measure. If you are buying a top, then neck, chest, sleeve, and buying bottoms, then waist, hips, and inseam length.
Chest measurement: Measure your fullest part of the bust, and it is best if you take it with a bra that you are wearing with this garment.
Waist measurement: Measure your waist from the hip bone. Usually, it is to the level of your belly button where you typically wear your pants.
Hip measurement: you are going to the fullest with your butts and hips. Measure it while sitting for the best result as you will feel more comfortable with your garment.
Inseam: It comes in three different sizes, usually small, standard, and tall. Start measuring from the uppermost part of the inner thigh and go till you want your cuffs to end. By wearing heels, this measurement can vary.

What is the garment material made of? So you can clearly see in the image, it is 100% of rayon.
What style/cut it has? It is a sleeveless peplum top.
You should check that you are comfortable wearing sleeveless, then go for it and order as per your largest measurement that if it has fit and flares style, you should focus on where to fit rather than where to flare.
