Sizing + Alterations

SIZING

To determine your correct size, reference the chart below.

  • Measurements are in inches. Measure yourself using a cloth tape measure.
  • Order the size that corresponds to your largest body measurement.
  • You can always get things taken in as necessary—fortunately Maria Pinto pieces are very easy to alter!
  • Find your corresponding body type on the shape guide at the bottom of the size chart; see individual product descriptions for recommendations on which shapes work best for specific items.

ALTERATIONS

Everyone's body is a little different. We hope your Maria Pinto pieces fit right off the hanger, but if you need any adjustments, fortunately the collection is very easy to alter!

How to alter your Maria Pinto pieces:
  • Each piece is intended to have a cut edge, do not put a hem on the pant or it will change the look of the garment. 
  • To alter, use a sharp pair of scissors and cut straight. The edge will not fray. 
  • After cutting, bar tack the seams – that's it. 
  • For any further questions or clarification, call us at 888-868-2057.

 

Easy Alterations

Every body is a little different. We hope your Maria Pinto pieces fit right off the hanger, but if you need any adjustments the collection is very easy to alter!

For garments that need to be hemmed, please note that most Maria Pinto pieces have cut edges; to hem, a tailor simply needs to cut and tack the fabric.
