Measurement of a T-shirt

For measuring a T-Shirt you need to take the measurement of the following 7 parts of our body

    1. Chest
    2. Waist
    3. Bottom
    4. Center back length/ T-shirt length
    5. Sleeve opening
    6. Sleeve length
    7. Shoulder
  1. Chest

Lay your T-shirt on the ground or on a table and place the fabric of the T-shirt nicely so that there are no wrinkles underneath or on top. Now place the measurement tape 1 inch or 2.5 cm below of armhole and side seam adjusting point or armpit.

  1. Waist

For measuring the waist of the T-shirt we have to find out the narrowest part of the T-shirt. Generally, it is in the halfway of the armpit and the bottom of the T-shirt. Measure across from the left of the T-shirt to the straight right.

  1. Bottom

Place the measurement tape on the left of the T-shirt straightly to the right of the T-shirt. Ensure that there are no wrinkles during lay down of T-shirt.

  1. Center Back Length/T-shirt length

Lay the T-shirt on the ground or on a table facing up of the back of the T-shirt. Now, place the measuring tape at the seam where the collar band attaches with the yoke. And carefully measure at the straight direction to the middle of the back the T-shirt to the hem where the longest point.

  1. Sleeve Opening

Place the measurement tape on the left of the sleeve straightly to the right. Ensure that there are no wrinkles during lay down of T-shirt.

  1. Sleeve Length

Lay the T-shirt with the back facing up. Extend a sleeve of T-shirt (you can try right sleeve which will be easy to measure with right hand) smoothly avoiding any wrinkle. Place the measuring tape at the middle point on the armhole seam line straightly to the bottom of the sleeve.

  1. Shoulder

By laid flat with a back facing up, place the measuring tape from left top armhole hole seam point to the right top armhole seam point straightly. Take the reading. This is the shoulder of this T-shirt. Ensure then there are no wrinkles during lay down of T-shirt.
