Bust:

Measure around the fullest part of your bust. It’s important not to tighten the measuring tape too much, and to make sure it sits horizontally across your body.

  • This is not your bra size!
  • Wear an unpadded bra (your dress will be tailored with a built-in bra)
  • Relax arms at your sides
  • Pull tape across the fullest part of the bust

Waist:

Measure around the natural waistline – the narrowest part of your waist – keeping the tape comfortably loose.

  • Find the natural waist by bending to one side
    • Where your body bends is the natural waist
    • The natural waist is usually about 2.5cm above the belly button
  • Keep tape slightly loose when measuring. This is to allow for some breathing room.

Hips:

Measure around the fullest part of the hips. This is different for everyone. Therefore, if you are unsure, take several measurements in this region and use the biggest measurement.

  • Find the widest part of the hips
    • Approx 18cm below the natural waist

Keep tape slightly loose when measuring. This is to allow room for avoiding the garment being too tight.

Height:

  • Stand straight with feet together
  • Measure in bare feet
  • Begin at the top of the head
  • Pull tape straight down to the floor

Hollow to Floor:

  • Stand straight with feet together
  • Measure in bare feet
  • Begin at the top of the head
  • Pull tape straight down to the floor

Body Measurement Tips

  1. When measuring yourself, keep the tape firm, but not tight.
  2. Measure over undergarments for more accurate measurements.

Important

  • Use your exact measurements when selecting your size
  • When selecting your size, fit for the widest part of your body and choose the size closest to the widest measurement.

Men's Suits


1: Neck

Wrap the tape around the lower part of your neck.

Your index finger should fit between the tape and your neck, right between your collar bones.

Don't choke yourself - keep the tape snug, not tight.

2: Shoulders

Measure across the top of your shoulders from behind.

This should be an arched line from shoulder to shoulder.

If you're wearing a shirt, the start and endpoints of this measurement will be the seams of your sleeves. The top of the arch will be a few inches lower than the bottom of your collar.

3: Sleeve Length

You'll definitely need some help to do this one right.

Whilst wearing a well-fitting shirt, put both arms comfortably at your sides (not rigidly straight.)

The person measuring you should start at the top shoulder seam, and run the tape down to the joint connecting your wrist and thumb.

4: Chest

Measure around the fullest part of the chest.

This is usually just below the armpits, passing right over the nipples (in front) and shoulder blades (behind.)

Don't puff your chest out, just stand normally.

Make sure the tape is level across, not drooping in back.

5: Jacket Length

This measurement is taken from the centre of the neck at the collar seam to the hem. (for shirts, should be long enough to tuck into your trousers).

    Stand up straight with your arms relaxed at your sides, wearing a shirt that fits well.

  • Have someone else measure from the highest point of your shoulder (where the shoulder and collar seams meet on your shirt) down to your desired length (usually, this will be your thumb joint, right above the nail).

Longer or shorter lengths are perfectly acceptable, depending on the style of the jacket and your own tastes.

6: Waist

Wrap the tape around your midsection, just below your bottom rubs.

Generally, this will be the narrowest part of your abdomen.

Be sure the tape is level horizontally; no drooping.

7: Trousers Rise & In-Seam

Stand up straight, wearing trousers that fit well.

In-Seam

Measure from the top of the inside leg at the crotch to the hem for the inseam measurement. For the

outer-seam measurement, measure from your natural waistline to the hem.

Rise

Front: Measure from the very top middle of your pants, down to the seam between your legs.

Back: Have someone else measure from the very top middle of your pants, down to the seam between your legs.

It's usually not too important that the front and back rise of your pants match with another pair exactly.

If you add these two measurements together, and it's close to the sum of the rises on a pair of pants you want to buy, it will likely be a good fit.

8: Hips

Wearing trousers, wrap the tape around the fullest part of your hips.

For most trousers, this will be right around the bottom of the opening of your pockets. (Be sure those are empty, by the way.)

The tape should be level, and not too tight, just barely felt.

9: Trousers Length

This is another measurement for which you'll need some help.

Stand straight, with a pair of trousers fitting comfortably around your waist.

Measure from the very top of your pants down to roughly 1 inch from the floor.

How to Measure

  1. To obtain correct readings of your foot measurements, you will need to do the following:
    • Trace the outline of your foot on a piece of paper.
    • If possible, have someone else trace your foot, but you can also do it by yourself.
    • Trace your foot whilst wearing socks similar to the ones you will wear with the shoes you are buying.
    • Kneel (or stand if you can have someone available to help you), with the foot that you're measuring firmly on the floor, in a natural position.
    • Trace the outline of your foot all the way around. Make sure to hold the pencil upright and perpendicular to the paper. Do not angle the pencil.
  2. Repeat the steps in guidance point number 1 above, with the other foot.

What to Measure

Once you've traced your feet, you will be able to get measurements for the length and width of each foot.

  • The length of your foot should be measured from the end of your big toe to the midpoint of your heel.
  • The width should be measured at the widest point of the foot.

The last measurement can be taken directly from your foot using a soft measuring tape. This measurement is the widest part of the foot (around the ball joint).

  • Using the soft measuring tape, measure completely around the foot at the ball joint.
  • Gently pull the tape snug, but not tight.
  • Repeat with the other foot.

We require at least, the following 3 measurements for each of your feet:

  1. Length [heel to toe]
  2. Width [width of the broadest part of foot sole]
  3. Girth [around the Ball-Joint (broadest part of the foot)]

Very Important:

A person's feet can sometimes differ in shape and size. Therefore, to get an accurate reading, measure the length and width of each of your feet (both feet must be measured)
