TIPS FOR FASHION THAT FITS
Sizes are based on body measurements as shown in the size chart, not the measurements of the clothes.

Peace of Cloth sizing runs slightly generous when compared to other brands.

Why don't I wear the same size in Peace Of Cloth Garments vs other brands?
Other brands do not follow vanity guidelines and measurements for fit, so you will most likely not wear the same size in non-vanity brands. Please refer to our size chart and recommendations for the best fit. Customers who are between sizes generally choose the smaller size.

 

TAKING MEASUREMENTS FOR PANTS

Measure Your Waist

Strip down to your underwear and stand in front of a full-length mirror. To get the correct waist measurement, make sure your underwear isn't cinching your waist.

 

Peace of Cloth pants sit right below the navel. Wrap the tape measure around your waist at that point. Keep it parallel to the floor. Do not hold your breath or suck your stomach in. Hold your body erect in a comfortable standing position. Be sure you don't draw it too tight.Record the measurement by looking at the number in the mirror or carefully down at it while keeping your back straight. 

 

 

 

 

Measure Your Hips

Wrap the tape measure around the fullest part of your hips and buttocks. This is usually located 7 to 9 inches (17.8 to 22.9 cm) below your natural waist. Keep the tape measure parallel to the floor.

 

Bring the tape measure together in the center front. Be sure to prevent yourself from drawing it too tightly. Record the measurement. Look at the number in the mirror and bend your head down while keeping your feet together and your legs straight.

 

Measure Your In-Seam

This is used for dress slacks and other pants, and is especially helpful in determining the best length to search for. Remember to take your shoes' heel height into account. Enlist the help of a friend if you can, or if no one's around to help, select your best fitting pair of jeans to measure your inseam.

  • Measure the inside leg. Ask your friend to use a tape measure to measure the length of your leg from your ankle up to the bottom of your crotch. You should be standing with your leg straight while this is done.
  • If you're using a pair of jeans, extend the tape measure from the bottom hem straight up to the lowest point of the crotch area.
  • Record the measurement.

 

 Measure Your Thigh

  • Stand in front of a mirror with your legs slightly apart.
  • Wrap a tape measure around the thickest part of your thigh. Keep it parallel to the floor and taut, but do not pull so tight that it digs into your flesh.
  • Bring the ends together in the front of your thigh.
  • Record the measurement. Read the number using the mirror or by looking down while keeping your leg and the tape measure still.

 

Measure Your Rise

All Peace of Cloth pants are based on a 10" front rise.

  • Stand in front of a mirror with your back straight and your feet and legs slightly apart.
  • Hold the end of the tape measure at the center back of your waist.
  • Gently and loosely pull the tape between your legs and over your crotch, keeping the other end positioned at the center front of your waistline at the point just below your navel.
  • Look at the measurement in the mirror or by cautiously bending your head down without changing your posture.

 

 

TAKING MEASUREMENTS FOR TOPS & JACKETS

Measure Your Bust
Stand with your back straight in front of a full-length mirror. Having good posture is the key to taking accurate measurements. Wrap a soft tape measure around your bust.

Bring the ends together in the center front. Place your thumb beneath the tape measure and keep yourself from pulling too tight, as this could give you an incorrect measurement. Record the measurement.
