How to Measure for Clothing

Even though our Leather clothing is offered in many sizes, for a more personalized fit, you may provide your measurements. It's important that you are as accurate as possible. Some dry cleaners have a seamstress on staff and will take your measurements for you.  Or, you can take them  yourself by following the tips below: 

  1. Wear only undergarments when measuring.
  2. Use a dressmakers measuring tape. One can be purchased at your local fabric store.
  3. Always make sure the dressmakers measuring tape is flat, not twisted or curled.
  4. BUST Measure your bust by placing a dressmakers measuring tape under your arms, across your back, and over the fullest part of your bust.
  5. WAIST Measure your waist by placing the tape measure around the most narrow section of your mid section or the area at the top of your hip bone and at the same level of your belly button.
  6. HIPS Standing with your feet together, wrap the tape measure around the fullest part of your hips. This area is typically around 7-9 inches below your waist.

     How to Measure for Rings

    Our leather rings are sized using a jeweler's ring mandrel.  To get the most accurate ring size measurement which will ensure that the right size ring is made for you, I highly recommend a ring sizer is used. You can purchase one here or, visit your jeweler and have them measure for you.
