Your Measurement Guide to Getting the Right Fit (Part 2)

As a series of two blogs, the first part focused on how to get the right measurements. This second and final part will discuss the different measurement requirements for both men and women. Read on to find them out.

For Men

There are a couple of areas to pay attention to when it comes to taking men’s measurements. For slacks and pants, take the measurements of the following:

  • Length
  • Waist
  • Inseam
  • Hips

Most people ignore taking the measurements of hips, which can result in loose or tight fitted garment which can make you uncomfortable. Knowing all these measurements will give you a clearer idea of what to expect when your order a pair of trousers.

When it comes to shirts, the following measurements are necessary:

  • Chest size
  • Sleeve length
  • Neck size

This piece from AskMen Magazine will give you an idea about how to measure each part of your body.

For Women

Women need to be concerned about a few more things. A majority of women make mistakes while measuring their busts. This is why it is said that more than 50% of women wear the wrong size of bra. It’s best to go and get fitted from a professional. This is one of those things that you need to make time for.

You also need to measure your natural waist, the slimmest part on your torso, and your actual waist upon which your trousers rest. You may not need the measurement for your natural waist all the time, but if you are out buying crop tops, and midis, you may need it.

Here is a guide from Lauren Conrad on getting the measurements the right way for women.

 

In addition to that, you can also make use for this interactive measurement chart for men from The Nora which will help you take the right measurements. For the ladies, you can take a look at this chart to make sure that you don’t make a mistake next time buying your clothes.
