Knowing your body measurements (both male and female) is a necessity to get clothes in the right sizes. There is a procedure to take clothing measurement. Use cloth measuring tape for body measurements. Refer the below Clothing measurement tutorial which teaches you on how to take female and male body measurements.
Know what you should measure by following the steps below:
Chest or Bust
Women: You should place one end of the tape measure at the fullest part of your bust and to get the measurement, wrap around your body by keeping the tape parallel to the floor.
Men: You should place one end of the tape measure at the center of your chest and wrap it around your body by keeping the tape parallel to the floor.
Measure around the narrowest part of your natural waistline.
Measure around the fullest part of your hip, before the thigh begins to narrow. This measurement will help you to determine your size for skirts, pants, and form-fitting dresses.
Men: 1) The inseam is the distance from the uppermost part of your thigh to your ankle. It is easiest to measure the inseam based on a well-fitting pair of pants. 2) Measure from the crotch to the cuff on the inside seam of the leg. The number of inches, to the nearest ½”, is the inseam length. It is best to measure your inseam with a pair of shoes on so that you can ensure the hem hits at the right point on your shoe.
Women: 1) Accurate inseam measurement depends on whether you are wearing heels or flats. 2) The hem should hit at the middle of the heel shaft or should hit just slightly above the flat shoe. It would be best for you to take two measurements for inseams: 2.1) Trousers you wear with heels. 2.2) Trousers you wear with flats. Neck
Measure around your neck, add a half-inch to the measurement for comfort. By round off this number to the nearest half-inch, you will get the first part of your dress shirt size. Sleeve
1) Sleeve measurement is often used for sizing men’s dress shirts. 2) Bend one arm at a 90-degree angle and place your hand on your hip. 3) Have a measurement from the center of your back, across your shoulder, down to your elbow and then to your wrist for your full sleeve measurement. 4) Most sleeve measurements fall between 32 and 39 inches. Sleeve sizes are always in whole numbers and by rounding up to the nearest whole number if needed.
