Choosing the correct size

As sizes can differ between brands, it's a good practice to take a measurement before you decide to order any clothes in our store. Taking an accurate measurement on your own can be tricky, so if possible, ask a friend to help you out. You'll need to be extra careful to make sure the tape measure isn’t twisted and it doesn’t slip. If you have to take the measurement yourself, it’s good to do it in front of a mirror.

Here are some useful tips which should help you choose the correct size:

  • To measure your chest, wrap the tape measure under your armpits, around the fullest part of your chest. The tape measure should be snug, but it can’t be either too tight or too loose. Remember to stand up straight and breathe normally. This way, you should get an accurate measurement.
  • For the length, put the first end of the measuring tape at the base of the back of your neck. Then, measure down your back to the point where you’d want the shirt or hoodie to end.
  • To measure the sleeve, place your hand on your hip with your arm bent at 90 degrees. Measure from the middle of the back of your neck, down your arm. The length will depend on the style of the sleeve.

If you are unsure of your size, we recommend that you measure your favorite clothes that fit you well. Simply place one of them on a flat surface and then compare it with the size of the item which you want to buy.

You can find a detailed guide with several useful videos on the WikiHow website, too.
