How do I determine my body measurements?
Neck: Measure around the neck just above the shoulders.
Chest: Measure just under the arms and across shoulder blades. Be sure to keep the tape level and your arms relaxed at your side.
Waist: Measure around the natural waistline at the top of your hip bone.
Neck-to-Waist: Measure from the bony protrusion at the back of neck, down the spine to the waist.
Sleeve: With your arm slightly bent to your side, measure from the center of your back at the base of the neck, over the point of the elbow, down the outside of the arm to the wrist.
Inseam: Measure from the height of the crotch seam to the desired pant length at the ankle. It is sometimes easier to take this measurement down the back of the leg, holding the top of the tape measure at the level of the crotch seam and measuring down to the back of the foot.
Bust: Measure around the fullest point of the bust, across the shoulder blades, keeping the tape level.
Waist: Measure around at the natural waistline
Hips: Stand with your heels together, and measure round the fullest part of your hips, keeping the tape parallel to the floor.
Use a tape measure (or a length of string that you will have to hold up to a tape measure) to determine the length. Place the string or tape around your head about 1/8” above your ear, across the mid-forehead, completely circling your head exactly where a hat would sit. Hold the tape firmly, but not too tightly.
