how to find the right fit
Follow these guides when comparing your measurements to product listings.
It's best to select a like item in shape and fabrication instead of your body because you want to leave room for ease.
Measure garment layed flat and smoothed out, then double.
Measure from armpit side seam across to the other side seam and double.
Waist - Tops, Sweaters, Jackets, Dresses
Measure from the smallest part of the garment torso from side seam to side seam and double. Also known as the natural waist.
Hips - Tops, Sweaters, Jackets, Dresses
Measure the widest part of the garment below the waist from seam to seam and double. Typically where the pockets begin but not always, use your best judgement depending on garment.
Measure from the top most seam at the neck to the longest part of the garment at the hem.
Measure in a straight line from top shoulder seam to other shoulder seam.
Measure from the neck to shoulder seam and from the shoulder seam to cuff and combine.
Waist - Jeans, Shorts, and Skirts
Measure the waistband from side seam to side seam and double.
Measure the inner crotch seam to top of waistband at the center seam. This measurement plays a crucial role in how pants and denim will fit. I typically start by comparing rise before waist since the lower the rise, the lower it will sit and the wider the measurement will be.
Hip - Jeans, Shorts, and Skirts
Measure at the bottom of the zipper from side seam to side seam, and double.
Measure from the center crotch seam to the inner cuff hem.
Measure from side seam to side seam of the cuff hem and double.
Top Length - Jumpsuits, Overalls
Measure from the waist to the top most part of the garment, either at the neck or top of strap. Will change if straps are adjustable.
