Do not measure yourself! Some measurements are impossible to take properly.
User should be wearing the clothes they intend to wear underneath the jumpsuit
Tape measure should be flush against the body (except where specifically specified otherwise), but not pulled tight
Do not add or subtract from measurements for fit - if you want a tight or loose fit, please request this (certain suit types will have a tighter or looser fit as standard)
Where possible, we advise ordering through one of our dealers, who are trained and experienced in taking measurements and can also advise you on option selection and show you colour samples.
Take measurements of both sides of your body for limb measurements (arm and leg)
Measure twice! This reduces the chance of error and helps us make a suit that fits properly.
Upon receipt of an order, we will run some statistical checks on the measurements provided. We will get back in touch if we feel any measurements should be checked.
Please feel free to provide photos (front, back and side) of the person being measured, as this can help us understand the measurements
Basic measuring instructions are shown on each order form. The guidance below is supplementary to the guidance on the order form.
Measure between the two hard points of your shoulder (the point that stays still when the arm is moved). This is usually in line with the seams of a well fitting t-shirt.
The measurement should take roughly the shortest route between the points, which will usually run over the bone at the base of the neck.
Note: The way this measurement is taken changed in November 2022.
With the arm relaxed at the side of the body, measure from the centre / tip of the shoulder bone to the wrist bone. This should be taken from the same point as the shoulder measurement.
Stand relaxed and measure round the widest point.
MStand relaxed and measure round the widest point.
Measure around the wrist bones.
Measure around the widest point. For men, this is often higher and just under their arms. Keep the tape level, DO NOT take a sloped measurement.
Measure just below the bust
This measurement is designed for female fit suits. If the measurement is provided we will build the suit for female fit, if it is not provided we build the suit for a male fit
Measure around the smallest part of the waist.
Stand with your feet together and measure around the widest part of the bum and hips. Make sure the tape stays level.
Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and measure around the widest part of the thigh. This is usually just below the bum cheek. Make sure pockets are empty!
Measure around the bottom of the quad muscle. This can be found by measuring 12.5cm (5") up from the kneecap and measuring around the leg at this point.
Measure around the widest point of the muscle.
For both inseam measurements, the tape must start centrally (on both axes) under the crotch and run down the leg without running over your fingers. Stand as straight as possible with feet shoulder width apart.
Hold the tape in the centre of crotch and run it down the leg to the side of the knee (in line with the centre of the kneecap).
Hold the tape in the centre of crotch and run it down the leg to the ankle bone.
Repeat this measurement twice to ensure the tape is in the correct place. Measure down each leg and take the longer measurement. If the difference is larger than 2.5cm (1"), retake a third time.
Inseam to Floor
Wearing the shoes intended for use with the suit and standing with feet shoulder width apart.
Hold the tape in the centre of crotch and run it down the leg to the ankle bone. The tape should take a straight line to the side of the knee, then down to the floor, measuring to where the bottom of the shoe meets the floor
Required for suits with an ankle cuff (freefly suits and trousers).
With shoes off, point your toes (as you would when putting your foot into the suit) and measure from the heel over the top of the foot around the widest point.
Measure around the ankle bones. This is not needed for suits with Booties.
Shoe Size and Circumference
Required for booties. Measure around the full circumference of the shoe.
Record the shoe size and the measuring system (US, EU or UK).
Run the tape from the centre of the crotch up the front and centre of the body to the middle of the hollow of the neck (between the 2 bones).
Repeat this measurement twice to ensure the tape is in the correct place and the customer does not have their thumb under the tape.
If the difference is larger than 2.5cm (1"), retake a third time.
Run the tape from the hollow in the neck (between the 2 collar bones), under the crotch to the C7 bone at the back of the neck (easily found by tilting the head forward - straighten back up for the measurement to be taken).
This measurement should be taken with no involvement of the person being measured. The person being measured should stand relaxed, looking straight forward, with feet shoulder width apart.
Measure around the base of the neck, just above the hole in the throat, where the collar will sit. As with all measurements, the tape should be flush to the skin, but not pulled tight!
Armpit to lateral
Put on your rig, and do the chest and leg straps as usual. Measure from the middle of the armhole to the top of the lateral webbing. This is where the wings of your camera suit or jacket will sit.
