How To Take Body Measurements

Before you start measuring, remember to:

  1. Use a non-stretchable tape measure.
  2. Make sure the tape measure is level around your body and parallel to the oor. 3. Keep the tape close to your skin without depressing it.

Bust: Measure all the way around your bust and back on the line of your nipples.
Chest: Measure directly under your breasts, as high up as possible.
Waist: Measure at its narrowest point width-wise, usually just above the navel.
Hips: Measure around the widest part of the hipbones.
Midway: Measure midway between the widest part of your hips and your waist.
Thighs: Measure around fullest part of upper leg while standing.
Knees: Measure immediately above the knee.
Calves: Measure around fullest part.
Upper arm: Measure above your elbows – around fullest part.
Forearms: Measure below your elbows – around fullest part.

Converting body measurements into garment size

There is no set formula to convert your body measurement into garment measurements. There are several factors to take into account: Fabrics (Knits, Woven, Lycra), style, body shapes, personal fit preference i.e. do you like to wear garments that fit you snug or loose.

This is our rough estimation on fits, fit might not be true for all body shapes. These estimates are based on regular fit items.
