When buying clothes and hats, it is important to know your body measurements to ensure that the clothes you buy will fit snugly and comfortably. This is a sizing guide for you so that you will never go wrong when buying clothes.
You have already chosen the perfect hat design and style. Now it's time to take your measurements and ensure that the hat fits nicely onto your head. You don’t want it to be too big and loose or too small and tight. When determining your hat size, ensure that you have a string, ruler, and measuring tape. Using the measuring tape, wrap it around your head about half inches above your ears and wrap it across your forehead. Round your measurement to the nearest eighth of an inch if required. For measurements ranging from 21 1/8 inches to 21 ½ inches, the hat size should be size S. For measurements ranging from 21 7/8 inches to 22 ¼ inches, the hat size should be size M. Between 22 5/8 inches to 23 inches, the hat size is size L. 23 ½ inches to 23 7/8 inches require a hat of size XL. Anything larger than it would be size XXL and it would be recommended that you physically try out the hat or approach staff for any queries regarding your measurement. Although most hats generally come in a one size fits all measurement, these hats usually fit heads with a circumference of 21 ½ inches to 23 inches. You can also use a hat size chart which is found online or in most retail stores to determine which size you should buy.
When buying a T-shirt, it is important to consider the style, design, and material of the shirt. You should also consider the shirt measurements and your body type. Are you taller and bigger in the chest or do you have a leaner body? Do you prefer shirts with a narrower sleeve? Are you someone who prefers breathable shirt material? Knowing your preferences is important as shirts vary in size and material. For shirts, it is important to get your chest, upper body length, and sleeve measurements before deciding which shirt to purchase. To measure chest-length, simply use a measuring tape to measure around the bigger part of your chest, across your shoulder blades, and under your arms. Measure the height of your upper body from the area where your shoulder connects with your neck to the waist. To measure sleeve length, simply bend your elbows up and measure from the center of your neck (at the back) to your elbow and up to your wrist.
Waist, Hip and Feet
Knowing your waist and hip measurements are very useful when it comes to buying pants, skirts, or trousers. Knowing your feet size also helps when buying shoes. For your waist measurements, wrap a measuring tape around your body over a shirt at the height that you would normally wear jeans or pants. It is important to keep one finger distance between your body and the tape. For hip measurements, stand with both feet together and use the measuring tape to measure around the fuller part of your hips. For feet size, you can refer to your normal pair of shoes as they will usually have a size tag.
