How to take Measurements
BUST/CHEST Start by measuring around the fullest part of the chest/ bust. Women: measure with your bra on if you wear one. Men: measure around fullest part of chest and shoulder blades.
WAIST Measure at the narrowest point of the waist. Be relaxed and do not hold in your stomach. Men: measure where you usually wear the waist of your pants. No cheating people! (No-one is looking)
HIPS Measure at the widest part of the hips. Sit it comfortably, not too tight. These measurements need to have a little ease in them to provide a good fit in your clothing. Men: stand with legs about 6 inches apart.
FINISHED SHIRT/DRESS LENGTH Measure from your throat/adams apple area down to the finished length of the shirt, tunic or dress. (for men this would be your shirt)
Sleeve Length This measurement should be taken from the edge of the shoulder where the sleeve meets the armhole. Go straight down the outer arm to where you would like the sleeve to stop. I usually recommend mid-thumb for a good looking length.
Skirt Length Measure from your belly button to desired length.
Inseam Measure from the inside of the crotch area and down to desired length. Be sure to include heels, platforms or shoe height to prevent pants from being too short. Even sneakers add an extra inch.
Please refer to the 'how to' measure. Although measuring plastic dolls posed minor challenges, here are some rough guidelines. You can also find very useful videos on www.youtube.com of how to accurately take measurements. Most products have stretch in them, so you can expect another 1-2 inches in each piece comfortably, if need be.
What you'll need. A tape measure and a full length mirror if doing it alone. For best results take body measurements undressed or in lightweight clothing. Keep the tape measure snug, but not tight. Stand up straight. You can also take out your favorite item of clothing and measure each area to know you are getting a product exactly the way you like it. Check the photos below.
Our products are made with real sized people in mind. The most common size being a M/L in men’s and women’s. Men’s pieces will also fit women and vice versa. The only difference may be in the length of the sleeve. More curvy women will find a huge selection in “Men’s”. Pants fit men and women equally well. Some will have a lower waistband and that will be noted in the product description. As most fabrics have a 4-way stretch, they can accommodate many body shapes with one size.
