Measuring Tips:

  1. Use your exact measurements when selecting your size
  2. Keep the tape firm, but not tight
  3. Measure over under garments
  4. Ask someone to measure you

H. Armhole Around shoulder joint.

K. Pants Inseam From the crotch seam down inner leg to the floor (while barefoot).

Garment Length The length of the garment can be different for different designs and types of clothing. If you order more than one item, you may need to enter a different Garment Length for each. Here’s how to measure Garment Length for a:

  1. Dress – From top of shoulder, down over the tip of one breast and down to the prefered length of the dress. [denoted by N]
  2. Top (blouse or jacket) – From top of shoulder, down over the tip of one breast and down to the prefered length of the blouse or jacket. If the top is part of a set, there will also be a Pants/Skirt Length measurement for the bottom part.
  3. Pants or Skirt – Because ensembles (suits and sets) have both a top and bottom, the bottom part is a separate measurement.

O. Slit Length Prefered length of slit of skirt or dress.
