Methods of Measuring:

  • Be sure that whoever is taking the measurement should hold the tape flat against the body: it should be held firm enough so that it does not droop/bend, but never so tight that it feels restrictive.
  • All measurements should be taken to the nearest (.25) inch
  • Do not add extra space to your measurement. Based on your photo provided, selected preference, and build we will adjust all measurements accordingly.
  • For anymore measurement specific questions feel free to email, phone, or visit our website.

Submitting Measurements Information:

  • The tape should be comfortably touching the skin, with enough room so that you do not feel restricted.

2. Full Chest

  • Measure around the chest and body at its fullest part (typically right under the armpits and shoulder blades. right across the nipples).
  • Hold the tape against the body tight enough so that it does not slip down, but not so tight that it restricts breathing. It should he “snug”.
