UK Max Mara Size Guide & Recommendations

9th July 2024

Max Mara

Our Max Mara sizing guide offers a detailed breakdown of sizes and provides tips to assist you in finding the perfect fit from this renowned Italian designer, celebrated for its fashion-forward cuts and luxurious fabrics.

Max Mara pieces typically adhere to standard sizing, so you can select your usual size with confidence. However, if you are new to this brand or find choosing the right size difficult, a sizing chart can be particularly useful.

We have developed a comprehensive sizing guide for UK Max Mara clothing, featuring a conversion chart from Italian and lettered sizes to UK sizes, including measurements.

Additionally, we have included guidance on measuring your bust, waist, and hips to ensure you find your ideal size easily and confidently.

Max Mara Clothing Size Guide

Max Mara clothing is generally labelled with either Italian number sizing or International lettered sizing. To help you confidently select the right size when shopping on our website, we’ve converted the Italian and lettered sizing into UK number sizes.

We’ve also included corresponding centimetre and inch measurements to get the most accurate sizing.

Please note: The measurements provided in this chart serve as a general guide from the designer. The fit of individual pieces may vary depending on the style, cut, and fabric of the garment and measurements may be out by a couple of cm. For further assistance, please feel free to contact our team.

UK Sizing Chart

The Max Mara sizing chart encompasses all sizes provided by this luxury label. Please be aware that not all sizes may be available on the Jane Young website.

We recommend consulting individual product pages to confirm the sizes currently in stock.

Our Stylists’ Tips for Taking Measurements for Max Mara Clothing

Taking accurate measurements is essential for ensuring a perfect fit when shopping for Max Mara clothing online. Follow these steps and tips to measure yourself correctly.


  • Stand up straight and wrap a measuring tape around the fullest part of your bust, making sure the tape is parallel to the floor and snug but not tight.
  • Wear a bra that you would normally wear with the type of garment you are purchasing.


  • Measure around the narrowest part of your waist, which is typically right above your belly button.
  • Breathe naturally and ensure the tape is snug but not compressing your skin.


  • Stand with your feet together and measure around the widest part of your hips, usually about 20cm (8 inches) below your waist.
  • Keep the tape measure parallel to the floor for an accurate measurement.

Helpful Tips for Accurate Measurements

  1. Use a Flexible Measuring Tape: A soft fabric tape measure will provide more accurate measurements than a ruler or metal tape measure.
  2. Measure Yourself in Front of a Mirror: This allows you to see if the measuring tape is level and properly aligned.
  3. Avoid Measuring Over Thick Clothing: Wear light, form-fitting clothing or measure yourself in your underwear for the most precise results.
  4. Stay Relaxed: If you’re tense or sucking in your stomach, measurements might not be accurate.
  5. Double-check your measurements: Take each measurement twice to ensure consistency.

By following these guidelines and tips, you can feel more confident about selecting the perfect size when shopping for Max Mara clothing.

If you’re still unsure which size would fit you best, feel free to contact our sales team or treat yourself to a personal shopping session, during which our stylists will professionally take your measurements.
