Made to Measure

Female Measurement Guide graphic

Take Your Measurements

See the illustrations as a guide. (You don't need every measurement for every product.) You should measure yourself with bra and underwear on, or over very light clothing (Men do not need to wear a bra... ha ha). You will need someone to help you to take accurate measurements. The more accurately you measure, the better the fit! (See handy form when you scroll down!)

Chest/Bust: Measure under your arms at the widest part of your chest. For women, measure the widest part of your bust (with a bra on).

Ribs: (Women only) Measure around your ribs, just below your breasts where the bra elastic would go.

Waist: Measure around your waist at your natural waistline.

Hips: Measure around the widest part of your hips/buttocks.

Inseam: Measure from your crotch to the floor.

Shoulder to Hem: This measurement is for dresses. Measure from your shoulder in front over your chest to where you want the hem of the dress to be.

Shoulder to Waist: Measure from your shoulder in front over your chest to your natural waistline.

Upper Arm: The Upper arm measurement is for Arm Warmers, do not flex your arm when you measure and do not make the measuring tape too tight.

Arm Length: Measure from where a shirt seam on your shoulder would be to your wrist.

Shoulder Width: Measure from shoulder to shoulder across the front of your body, from where a shoulder seam on a shirt would be to the opposite shoulder seam.

Head Circumference: This is for hats! Measure around your head where a hat would go.

Now get out that tape measure and fill out this form!
