Women Apparel Size Reference Chart
Bust: This measurement should be taken directly under the armpits and doubled
Shoulders: Measure across the top of the garment from shoulder seam to shoulder seam.
Sleeves: For men's long sleeved shirts, this is the measurement taken from the back of the middle of the neck to the end of the cuff. For women's garments, this measurement can be taken from the shoulder seam to the end of the cuff. However, since some garments have a drop style shoulder or a raglan style sleeve, the most accurate measurement is taken from the back of the middle of the neck to the end of the cuff, like a man's shirt. Additionally, I will provide an underarm sleeve measurement which is taken from the underarm seam to the end of the cuff when a sleeve is of unusual length or style, such as drop shoulder.
Waist: For pants and skirts, measure across the very top, then double. For shirts and dresses, measure at about 6-8 inches below the armpit, then double.
Hips: For pants and skirts, measure about 8-9 inches down from the waist, then double. For shirts and dresses, measure at about 14-16 inches below the armpit, then double.
Length: For skirts, measure the front center of the garment from the top of the waist to the bottom of the hem. For shirts and dresses, you may measure one of several ways, depending on the style of the garment - measure from the shoulder seam to the bottom of the hem, from the armpit to the bottom hem, or from the center back neck to the bottom hem. Depending on the style of the garment, you should decide which measurement will provide your buyer with the most accurate information, and include in your listing how you arrived at your measurement.
