We understand that choosing the best size and fit can sometimes be challenging. We're here to help! Just follow the simple steps below to select the best size for your needs. Take the guesswork out of sizing. The first step to any good fit is having the right measurements. We offer size and fit charts on most of our products.
A size chart generally refers to the "size" you might want based on your actual body measurements. You should use this as a general guideline because you might want a tighter or looser fit. When in doubt or you fall in between sizes we suggest ordering a size up. Our size charts offer a basic guideline for fitting.
Most custom clothing manufacturers use different sizing specifications based on their target audience.
You can get your accurate body measurements using the following steps:
- Get a friend to help if possible
- Use a cloth tape measure and keep the tape taut but not stretched
- Measure your body over properly fitting undergarments while standing tall and without shoes
- Measure the areas needed such as: chest, neck, waist, hips, sleeve, inseam based upon the guidelines below:
Chest/Bust - With arms down at sides, measure around the upper body, under arms and over the fullest part of the chest/bust.
Neck - Measure around the base of the neck, inserting a finger or two between the tape and neck for comfort. If you have a shirt with a collar that fits you well, lay the collar flat and measure from the center of the collar button to the far end of the buttonhole. The number of inches will be your size.
Sleeve - Place hand on hip. Start at the center of the back of the neck and measure across the shoulder, to the elbow, and then down to the wrist. The number of inches will be your size.
Waist - Measure around your waist, over a shirt (not pants) at the height you normally wear your pants. Keep one finger between the tape and body. If you have a favorite pair of pants/shorts that fit you best, lay them flat, measure across the waistband and double the measurement.
Inseam - Stand in a comfortable position wearing shoes with a standard heel. Measure the leg from the underside of the crotch (known as the top inseam point) to the bottom side of the ankle (the lowest inseam point). This measurement will be your inseam. If you have a pair of pants that fits well and is the desired length, measure from the crotch seam to the hem.
