HOW TO MEASURE A T-SHIRT?

There are various ways to measure women’s T-shirt size. But generally, a bust and waist measurement will suffice. So you will need to take two points of measurement:

  1. Start by taking your bust measurement. Bring the tape measure up and measure around the fullest part of the bust. Make sure that, as you do so, the tape is level and snug against your body, but not too tight.
  2. Then measure the waist size. Take the tape measure and wrap it around the natural waist, again making sure that the tape is snug but not too tight.
