Individual-made clothes, how to measure yourself correctly

After years of working in the fashion industry, we came to the conclusion that offering clothes of standard sizes were no longer effective. Since customers come in all shapes and sizes, they need clothing that is customized to fit their exact body size. We want our linen clothes to fit each person perfectly after they order from us. It doesn’t matter what your body parameters are because we will customize the clothing you purchase to fit your body perfectly.

Customer satisfaction is our top priority. We accept custom orders because we want our customers to feel comfortable in the linen clothes that they have purchased from us. To prove this, we don’t even charge extra for our customization service. The only time a custom size costs extra is if a lot more fabric than usual is needed to make the clothing.

We hope you’ll be 100% satisfied with your customized clothing items. For this reason, we require very precise measurements of various regions of your body. We’re not there to measure your body in person, so we depend on you to provide accurate measurements of your body to us. Then we will customize the clothing items based on your body size information and parameters.

Below is information on how to take accurate body measurements of yourself. The areas of the body to measure should include the neck size, shoulders, back, chest, upper arm, sleeve length, waist, low waist, hips, and inseam. Let’s examine each one more closely.

Neck size.
Use the tape to measure around the base of your neck, where it meets your shoulders. Put a finger between your neck and the tape measure for a looser fit collar.

Shoulders. Back (Standard) width.
Think of a line going from your armpit straight upwards to your shoulder. Measure between those two points and hold the tape measure straight. If you are wearing a dress shirt that fits your upper body correctly, you can use it as a guide. The shoulder seams on the back of your shirt will usually match up with your actual shoulder points.

Chest.
The chest measurement is taken as a circumference measurement around your chest at the widest point. Stand in a relaxed posture and breathe out.

Upper arm.
Measure the circumference around the thickest part of your upper arm, usually at the bicep.

Sleeve length.
Measure the length from the topstitching on the shoulder to the bottom of the wrist. Aim for hitting your wrist bone with the measuring tape. Be careful not to measure too high above the wrist, or the dress shirt’s sleeves will come to be too short.

Waist.
The waist measurement is taken as a circumference measurement around your waist just above your belly button. Stand in a relaxed posture and breathe out.

Low waist.
Measure around your waist, slightly below your natural waist, where you normally wear your trousers.

Hips.
Measure the circumference around your hips at the widest point. This will usually be roughly just above the crotch line.

Inseam.
Make sure you are in a pair of pants that fit you well and also barefoot. Then take the measurement starting from the crotch seam down the inside of the pant leg to the desired end of the pants.
