Measurement of size:

(1) The basic measurement principle is the same for all garments, but the measurement method will differ slightly for different customers.

(2) The measured garment must be flat, and the measured garment must not be stretched or curled before or during the measurement.

(3) The garment must be flat on the inspection table. The size of the inspection table must be big enough to put the whole garment flat. And it also must be flat and clean. The ruler is the most commonly used measuring tool. We suggest you use a ruler that is not easily deformed and flexible.

(4) Make sure that every size is measured during the measurement. You can randomly measure 2-3 pieces to ensure the correct result.

(5) The standard measurement error is 1-2cm because the garment is measured and made by hand.
