How to Take Proper Measurements

The best way to get a proper fit for your RebelRose Threads clothing is to take measurements.

Custom handmade clothing sizes don't always match up with Ready to Wear store sizing, so measurements helps us get more accurate sizing. We can also tailor the fit if you're in between sizes, or if your body isn't one straight size.

 

Each product listing will have a size chart listed with the measurements you'll want to take.

  • All measurements should be taken over undergarments or diapers.  

 

  • Do not pull too tight.

 

  • If you do not have a soft measuring tape, you can use a piece of string or some similar item that is not stretchy. Take the measurements using the string and then measure the length of the string on a straight ruler or rigid measuring tape.

Head-Measure around the circumference of the head. The measuring tape should circle from the forehead, over the temples to the base of the neck and back up to the forehead.

Chest-Measure around the body at the chest, going under the arms. The measuring tape should remain parallel to the floor while taking this measurement.

Torso-Hold the measuring tape at the top of the shoulder. Pull it down and feed it through in between the legs, coming up the back side and meet back at the top of the shoulder.

Waist-Measure around the body at the waistline, which should be just beneath the belly button. The measuring tape should remain parallel to the floor while taking this measurement.

Hips-Measure around the widest part of the hips. The measuring tape should remain parallel to the floor while taking this measurement.

Inseam-Place the measuring tape at the top of the inner thigh, at the crotch level. Pull the tape down the length of the leg, stopping right below the ankle. (If this is for shorts or a dress, measure to where you want the hem to fall on the thigh.)

Length-Place the measuring tape at the top of the shoulder, and pull it down the front of the body. For dresses, stop at the knee. For shirts, stop at the hip bone.
