HOW TO MEASURE:
Measure around the chest at the fullest point of the bust.
Measure around your natural waistline.
Measure around fullest point of seat while standing.
Measure similar pants that fit you well. Lay them flat, with the front and back creased smooth. Measure along the inseam from crotch to bottom of leg hem.
With arm relaxed at your side and slightly bent, measure from center back neck, over point of shoulder, down the outside of the arm to the wrist.
Start by the neck at the highest point of the shoulder, then measure down over the chest through the crotch and continue up the back to the starting point.
Head (Hats and Caps)
Measure around the largest part of the head, with tape above brow. Convert to hat size using the chart on the Size Chart tab.
*Hand (Gloves and Mittens)
Measure around the knuckles with hand flat (exclude thumb). Number of inches equals glove size.
To find the right size, first think about where you prefer to wear your pants–either at the waist or lower on the waist. This will affect the fit of your belt. Measure around where your waistband generally falls and compare that number with our size chart to get the best belt fit.
