Bolero Sizing Issues

 With the holidays just around the corner, I've been considering buying a few brand boleros, however, it seems like no matter what bolero I find the sizing is considerably smaller than expected. For instance, I've noticed that Innocent world's L sized blouses have around 100cm for their bust measurements, while their L sized boleros are only around 89cm. BTSSB and Angelic Pretty also seem to list similar bolero sizes, and for some reason, few, if any of them list a size range for their boleros, knits, and cardigans even when they seem to be made of fairly stretchy material. 

In short, does anyone know why brand bolero, knit, and cardigan sizes tend to be smaller than everything else, and what general measurements they can comfortably accommodate?

Measurement request, kind of strange

I need a few measurements, but they're not your typical measurements. 

I want to know what the full circumference of the hem of any a-line dress is.  If you can link me to it or provide a picture so I can see it as well it would be much appreciated.  The waist/bust measurements for the item are appreciated if they are not provided in the link, but I can also look them up myself if I'm familiar with the dress name. 

I also want to know what the measurements for a soft bonnet are from the bottom of the back to the place where the brim and crown attach and the measurement for the brim.  I would also love the ear-to-ear measurement for the crown. 

I've been trying to make a bonnet using the tutorial I found through the memories on sew_loli but it isn't coming out large enough, so I'm going to try and make my own pattern, but I don't want to keep wasting fabric. 

Thank you all in advance for any help you can give me.
