We want you to find the best fit in your garment choices. We advise you choose items from your wardrobe that have a good fit and measure them as we do for comparison. All of our measurements are taken with the garment lying flat. Measurements are doubled for chest, waist, hip and flare. In order to ensure the best fit, please measure yourself using the guide below. Take into account the style of the cut in tandem with your own personal comfort.
We are committed to your satisfaction. We are happy to send any additional measurements at your request. If you have any questions about the garment, fabric, condition, size, or proper measuring technique, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shoulder to Shoulder
Stretch the measuring tape from the outside end of the left shoulder seam across the back to the outside end of the right shoulder seam.
Measure from the shoulder seam to the end of the cuff.
Lay a shirt or dress of your own flat and measure from 1 inch below the armpit across the chest to 1 inch below the other armpit. Take this number and double it for an estimate, or you can measure around your chest at the fullest point of your bra cup. Go under your arms and around the back making sure you have room to bend and breathe.
Choose items from your wardrobe that have a pleasing waist fit and lay them down flat, measure from end to end and double that for sizing. Or you can measure around the smallest part of your waistline with one finger between your body and the measuring tape (approximately 1” above the navel). Take into account whether the item is high waisted or low rise.
Lay a comparable fit item down and measure 7 inches or so below the waistline. You can also measure yourself. Stand with your heels together, keeping tape straight and parallel to the floor, and measure around the fullest part of your hips.
The inseam is measured from the highest point inside the leg (crotch) to the hem or ankle. Position the measuring tape at the highest point on the inside of the leg and measure to your ankle or pant hem.
We measure the length of a garment from the top of the shoulder (or waistline for bottoms) to the bottom. To measure yourself, stand with your heels together, keeping tape straight and perpendicular to the floor. Measure down from the high point of your shoulders.
