{Tip – Ensure the tape is at the base of the neck, where the neck and shoulders meet}

{Tip – When measuring naturally inhale so that your body is full, but don’t “puff” out your chest}

{Tip – Don’t hold your stomach in}

Cuffs – Measure at the wrist bone, typically where a watch is worn.

Sleeves – Measure with arm at your side, from the tip of the shoulder to the first knuckle of the thumb.

{Tip – Your first knuckle is where your thumb meets your hand}

Back – Measure across the top of your shoulder, from one edge to the other. Ensure you take the curved contour over the top of the shoulders.

{Tip – Measure your best fitting shirt in the back, by measuring shoulder seem to shoulder seem}
