No jeans and empty your pockets!About Measuring When taking measurements the tape should be held flat against the body; it shouldbe held snug enough so not droop, but never so tight as to feel restrictive. All measurements should be taken to the nearest quarter (.25) inch. Do not add wiggle room to your measurements. We will adjust the fit based off ofyour selected preferences and build. All measurements are “skin measurements”. More measurement specific questions?
