Wearing a typical bra for you (or the bra you intend to wear if its specific), measure the
circumference of your bust at its fullest point. Do not pull the tape measure tight and try to
relax your arms by your sides. The value should basically be your bra size (i.e 36DD) but always
measure never assume.
Again, whilst wearing a properly fitted bra, measure the circumference of your chest, directly
underneath your breasts. Ensure the tape measure is level and not twisted. The value should
be the band size of your bra if it were properly fit.
Measure from the where the shoulder seam would sit on a well fitted shirt/jacket, down to the
fullest part of the breast. The position along the shoulder seam will vary depending on the
individuals bust and the bra, which is why it is important to wear a properly fitted/typical bra for
you. Ensure the tape measure is straight and not at an angle.
Measure the circumference of your neck at the height where your collar would sit. If you wish
to be sure you of the height you can wear a shirt that fits you well.
Flex your arm to 90 degrees to find the widest point of your bicep then relax your arm and
measure the circumference of at its widest point.CLOSE
Measure around the circumference of your wrist at the point where the jacket sleeve would
end, keep the tape measure snug but not tight.
With your arm relaxed at your side, measure from where shoulder seam meets the crown down
to your desired length, generally at the base of the thumb where it meets your wrist.
Measure across the top of the back from the tip of one shoulder to the other, its not necessarily
a straight line but rather follow your natural curvature of the upper back. If you struggle to
identify the tip of the shoulder and have a shirt / jacket that fits well, you can simply measure
between the shoulder seams.
Stand relaxed with your feet hip width apart and measure around your natural waist, i.e. the
narrowest part of the body. Make sure the tape measure is snug but not tight, level to the floor
and not twisted.
Measure vertically from the base of your neck (collar seam) down to where your body / waist
is smallest. This should be the height at which you just previously measured your natural waist.
Measure vertically from the base of the neck (collar seam) to the desired length of the jacket.
If you wear a jacket you know fits you well first lift up the collar to ensure you measure from the
Measure around your waist at the height where you would like to wear your trousers, not your
natural waist. Do not pull the tape measure too tight. If you are not sure and have an existing
pair of trousers that fit as you would like, wear them, and measure around the waist band
where they sit.
Measure around the fullest part of your hips AND seat (tailor term for bum). Stand feet hip
width apart, making sure your pockets are empty and the tape is level and untwisted. You
should just barely feel the tape against your body, do not pull it too tight.
Measure vertically from the top of where you want the trouser waist to sit down along the side
pant seam, to the desired trouser length. This is typically around 1-2″ from the floor, but will
vary depending on your style. If you are not sure you can wear a pair of trousers you know fit
you well, and/or wear shoes similar to those you intend to wear with the suit.
Measure the circumference of your thigh at its widest point, this is usually near the
top of the inseam but may be slightly lower depending on your physique.
Similar to the previous measurement, but take the circumference of your knee. We do not
typically need these last two measurements, so only include them if you feel these are problem
areas for you in traditional fitting trousers.
