How to measure your T-shirt size
The measurements needed for a T-shirt are chest width and length.
Measuring Chest width:
Actual chest which refers to the actual measurement of the garment itself, and ‘Chest to fit’ which relates to the size of the t-shirt wearers chest.
To measure your chest size, run a fabric tape measure under your arms and fit it around the fullest part of your chest. It’s important to have the tape measure parallel to the ground, not dipping, sagging or twisted which distorts the measurement and impacts the fit of the t-shirt.
Take note of the measurement at the point where the tape crosses, ensuring you can breathe easily, or else your t shirt may be too tight. This is what is referred to as the ‘Chest to fit’ measurement of t shirts.
Alternatively, get one of your existing t shirts that you know fits and measure it from armpit to armpit. This is what is referred to as the ‘Actual Chest’ of T-Shirts.
Measuring T Shirt Length:
Either measure an existing T-shirt from the top of the back of the neck to the bottom of the hem, and use that as a gauge, or get a friend to help you measure from the middle of the back of your neck, down your spine to a suitable length for the T-shirt you desire.
How to measure your shirt size
While shirts for men are traditionally based on two measurements: neck size and sleeve length, shirts for women often only have a bust measurement, and it’s increasingly common for fashion shirts to come in sizes such as small, medium and large, for both sexes.
