When it comes to online shopping, skeptics aren’t uncommon. In may cases the biggest thought that goes through one’s mind is, “will it even fit?” or “what size am I?”
At FurSource, our products are very true to size, but that doesn’t mean we recommend skipping out on collecting your measurements. We’ve included garment measurements in the Product Details for our items, so combined with your proper measurements you are sure to have a perfect fit. Here are our tips for finding your measurements for Coats + Jackets, Hats, and Mittens + Gloves:
Coats + Jackets
BUST: Measure your bust around the fullest part. With your arms hanging naturally at your sides, have someone measure you with a measuring tape under your arms, around your back, and over the fullest part of your bust.
WAIST: Measure your waist around your natural waist line. Try bending to one side to discover exactly where your waist naturally folds. Take the measuring tape from this point and measure around your entire waist.
HIPS: Measure your hips 20cm (8 inches) down from your natural waist line. Stand up straight with your feet together to measure over the fullest parts of your hips and rear.
NOTE: Make sure the measuring tape is flat and snug, but not tight. Also always check for size measurements in the Product Description since some coats may not follow the standard sizing guide. If you do not see any additional measurements in the product description always follow the standard sizing guide located under the Size Chart tab. We do have two different sizing charts for women’s coats and vests based on the garment sizing which are Women’s Sizes and Ladies Sizes.
MEN’S SIZING CHART
To determine your hat size, measure the circumference around your head with a measure tape or string, keeping the string level and firm, across the temples and above the eyebrow ridges. Measure the length of the string.
NOTE: For in-between measurements go the next size up.
TIP FOR GIFT BUYING: The average female head size is medium. The average male head size is large.
Mittens + Gloves
Measure the circumference around your hand, keeping the tape level firm, across the knuckles. Measure your dominant hand–the right if you are right-handed, and the left if you are left-handed.
NOTE’: For in-between measurements go the next size up.
