How to Measure


Hat Size:

Measure across your brow just above your ears, be sure to keep the tape parallel to the floor. Please note, for female sizes, this measurement in inches is your hat size. For male and generic sizes, divide the measurement in inches by 3.14 to obtain your hat size to the nearest 1/8".


Collar:

Measure around your neck at the point where the collar is worn. Pull the tape tight enough to remove gaps between the tape and the skin, but not so tight as to depress and discolor the skin. Round up to the nearest 1/2" for your collar size. Another technique is to measure the collar of a comfortably fitting shirt while on a flat surface. Measure from the center of the button to the outside edge of the button holde and round up to the nearest 1/2".


Chest / Bust:

While standing erect, but relaxed, measure around the largest part of the chest or bust with the tape passing under the arms. Be sure that the tape remains parallel to the floor, and snug*.


Waist:

While standing relaxed, measure around your waist where the trousers are worn; generally this is the smallest part of the waist. Be sure to pull the tape snug*.


Hips:

While standing relaxed with your feet together, measure around the fullest part of your hips (seat). The tape should run parellel to the floor and be snug*. Be sure to remove wallets, phones, and other content from your pockets before taking your measurement.


Length of Skirt:

Measure from your waistline to the center of your kneecap.


Inseam:

Measure the inside seam from the crotch to the bottom of the trouser leg. A good technique is to measure a pair of well-fitting trousers laid on a flat surface.


Sleeve Outseam:

With your arms held relaxed at your sides, measure from the center of the back, over the shoulder, to the bottom of the wrist bone where the hand joins the wrist.


*Snug means that the tape is tight, but still loose enough to easily slide your hand under the tape.
