How to choose and understand clothes size.

We all purchase ready-made clothes or stitch them according to our need.  For whole family men, women and children we buy T-shirts, dress, pants etc and the first thing which is in our mind is the ‘size’. Any cloth, shoes, undergarments we buy requires size. Every outfit or apparel should have size mentioned in inches and cms.

"Apparel" can also include things like name-tags, jewelry or other stuff you wear. "Clothing" tends to refer to stuff traditionally made from cloth (but still includes synthetic variants).  The specific dividing line between the two terms is subjective and will differ from person to person. "Apparel" is also slightly more formal.

Take your measurements

To find your correct size, use a tape measure and take these measurements. Stand with your back straight in front of a mirror, to make sure that you measure correctly and that the tape measure is kept level.


Measure under your armpits, around your shoulder blades, and over the fullest part of your bust. Don't pull the tape measure too hard. For fitting a bra, you also need the measurement just under your bust.


Measure around your natural waistline. This is the narrow part of your waist, about an inch above your navel. Relax and breathe out before you measure.


The hip should be measured around its fullest part (about 8 inch. below your waist).


This is the measurement from your ankle to your groin, when you stand with your legs straight. If possible, ask a friend to help you. This can also be measured on a pair of pants with the proper length.

This information is just to help you find suitable size clothes in ready made or stitched one. Well in ready made clothes we have the labels stitched in reverse with details like how to wash, size etc, use them for reference. And in T-shirts at back side top on reverse size labels are mentioned use them to know your size. 

Correct Size of dress enhances your personality, so choose them wisely.
