Getting the correct measurements. A comfortable garment begins with your actual body measurements. "Fit" and "Length" adjustments are then added to accommodate individual body differences and personal style.
Get actual body measurements:

1. Chest/Bust
- Measure around the fullest part of the chest/bust. Do not draw the tape too tightly.
2. Center Back Neck–to-Cuff - With arm slightly bent, measure from back base of neck across shoulder around bend of elbow to wrist.
3. Back Waist Length - Measure from the most prominent bone at base of neck to the natural waistline.
4. Cross Back - Measure from shoulder to shoulder.
5. Sleeve Length - With arm slightly bent, measure from armpit to cuff.
6. For an accurate head measurement, place a tape measure across the forehead and measure around the full circumference of the head. Keep the tape snug for accurate results.
