How to Measure Your School Uniform Properly

Are you excited about getting your new school uniform? Making sure it fits just right is important, so follow these easy steps to measure it properly.

  • Get the Right Tools: You'll need a measuring tape and a friend to help you get accurate measurements.

  • Measure Your Chest: Stand up straight and breathe normally. Wrap the measuring tape around the fullest part of your chest, just under your arms. Make sure it's snug but not too tight.

  • Check Your Waist: Measure around the narrowest part of your waist, which is usually just above your belly button.

  • Get the Length: For the shirt or blouse, measure from the top of your shoulder down to where you want the shirt to end. For the skirt or pants, measure from your natural waist down to where the skirt or pants should reach.

  • Sleeve Length: Extend one arm out and measure from the top of your shoulder to your wrist for the sleeve length.

  • Shoulder Width: Measure from the edge of one shoulder to the edge of the other shoulder, across your back.

  • Hips and Inseam: If you're getting a skirt or pants, measure around the fullest part of your hips and the inside of your leg from your crotch to where you want the pants to end.
