Knowing your correct size is critical for buying clothes online. In fact, a lot of consumers hesitate to buy online due to the fit problem. To make things more complex, almost every apparel vendor uses their own nomenclature for sizes (for example, a size M from one vendor can be quite different from size M from another vendor).
This guide will help you find your correct measurement. Apart from the standard sizes, MyWear apparels are also available in custom sizes. So, don't be restricted to a S/M/L/XL - specify your exact size and your T-Shirt, Backpack or bag will be custom made that way!
Note: the custom size slider is for Apparel Width and not chest size.
If you do not have a tape measure, please download a tape measure here and print it! The PDF file includes directions on how to print and glue the paper to get a correct tape measure.
For apparel, you can measure one of two ways A) Body Measurement B) Measure your favorite dress.
Take a deep breath & measure your chest just below the arm hole. This is your chest width. Use the nearest size from the chart (row A in chart) for standard fit. If you are stockier, use the next higher size.
Take a T-shirt or dress that fits you comfortably. Measure just below the arm hole. This is your Apparel width. Use the nearest size from the chart (row B) for a similar fit.
Measuring Sizes for Accessories
Take your favorite bag or backpack, spread it flat on a table and measure its width near the center. Measure its height from top to bottom, also at the center.
Choose the appropriate size from the size chart that is closest to the Width & Height measurement you took. Apart from the standard sizes, MyWear Design-your-own Backpacks, Bags, Pillowcases and other accessories are available in custom sizes! Just select CUSTOM under size and set the Width & Height to the exact value you want and your backpack (or bag or the accessory) will be custom made to that size!
