Id use another chart, choose a store you would usually shop at, my hips are 36 and im a size 10. It can completely depend where you shop though.

I've taken my measurements tonight and according to the size chart I'm using for the dress I'm getting my bust is a size 14, my waist a size 18 and my hips a size 10. Clearly I have gone horribly wrong somewhere as I promise I am proportional!

I used my OH's work tape as I don't have dressmakers measuring tape and it was in cm which I converted into inches online.

My bust is 40", my waist is 35" and my hips are 39".

Does that sound reasonable? Or have I measured wrong?

Also, if it helps (and if I get the link to work!) this is the size chart I'm using:
