How to find your perfect size wearable

Updated: Sep 16, 2019

Sometimes its tough to find the right size when purchasing a shirt. The chart below shows where to take measurements from and use these as your guide when looking at the sizing charts. If you have not taken your measurements before, the best guide is to getting accurate results is to measure yourself without clothing covering the body part being measured. For some of these measures, having a friend will be helpful. Each of the measurements the person being measured should be standing upright if possible. This is especially important for inseam measurements.


Measure the circumference of your chest. Place one end of the tape measure at the fullest part of your bust, wrap it around (under your armpits, around your shoulder blades, and back to the front) to get the measurement. If you do not have a tape measure (do not use a metal tape measure), use a long rope or piece of string that will wrap around, mark the starting location on the string and the location of where the two meet once wrapped around. Measure the distance between to get your chest size.


Measure the circumference of your waist. Use the tape to circle your waist (sort of like a belt would) at your natural waistline, which is located above your belly button and below your rib cage. (If you bend to the side, the crease that forms is your natural waistline.) For accurate measurements, do not "suck in" your stomach, this will lead to a wrong measurement.


Measure the circumference of your hips. Start at one hip and wrap the tape measure around your rear, around the other hip, and back to where you started. Make sure the tape is over the largest part of your buttocks.


This is the distance from the uppermost inner part of your thigh to the bottom of your ankle. Easiest way to measure is to take a pair of pants that fit you well and measure from the crotch area down to the hem of your pants. This measurement can be lengthened or shorten based upon the heel height of the shoes.

Be sure to record the measurements for future reference.
