2. How to take your exact measures?
Each person has their own individual shape, size and height. When ordering clothes, it is good to know your measurements, to help achieve a perfect fit. The following illustrations show how and where to take your measurements. Take your measurements when wearing only underwear. Ask someone to help you! You will need at least two measuring tapes. Wrap a wide, non-stretch tape around your waist to mark your waist level. Stand up straight and relaxed.
1 Bust – measure around the fullest part, below the armpits, and raise the measuring tape slightly at the back.
2 Neck– measure the circumference at the base of the neck, above the collar bone.
3 Waist – measure around the narrowest part, where the crease forms when you bend to the side. Secure the waist tape here.
4 Hips – measure horizontally around the fullest part of your bottom/upper thighs.
5 Front waist length – measure from the shoulder, at the base of the neck, over the tip of the bust, to the lower edge of the waist tape.
6 Bust depth – measure as described for the front waist length, but only to the tip of the bust.
7 Back length – measure from the first, slightly protruding, neck vertebra, along the spine, to the lower edge of the waist tape.
8 Back width – measure horizontally between the bases of the arms. Important: Stand up straight and relaxed.
9 Shoulder – measure from the base of the neck to the shoulder point.
10 Upper arm – measure around the fullest parts of both upper arms. If the measurements differ, use the larger measurement.
11 Arm length – with the arm slightly bent, measure from the shoulder point, over the elbow, to the wrist.
Compare the measures taken with those provided by the measurement table provided. Choose the size the most in line with your measures. According to different types of models, some measures are primordial: the bust for shirts, dresses, vests and coats, the hips for skirts and trousers.
