A Guide To Sizes And Measuring
Measuring yourself and understanding what size you need is crucial when shopping on the internet. Measurements can be dramatically different from brand to brand due to style, spec and country of origin, even if garments have the same size labels inside. If you need measurements the most regular request is for chest size we measure this the following way
Armpit To Armpit
The most effective measurement is the pit to pit of a garment. This is taken by laying the garment flat, face up and measuring the cloth from its widest point from under the armpit to the other armpit. The best way to assess the measurement you require is to measure a garment of similar description which fits you well (i.e. if you are buying a jumper you should measure one you own and like the fit of to judge which size you require when making your purchase). Never be misled by your actual chest measurement, for example if your chest measures 44 inches all around and you divide by two giving you a pit to pit of 22 inches that would actually be too small as you need at least one to two inches in a garment to allow for movement.
