Measurements Tutorial

Important: A tailor's measuring tape is ideal for these measurements, however if you do not have one you can use a piece of string or cable as a placeholder and then lay it out against a straight ruler to measure the distance. If you use this method, ensure the string you're using is non-stretch. Any bit of stretch will throw off your measurement.


Waist

This measurement should be taken around your beltline. It will likely be at or slightly larger than your normal pants size. Careful to keep the measurement level and not go too far up or down your back.

Belly

This measurement should be taken around the biggest part of your belly for maximum cuddleability.

Chest

This measurement should be taken around the broadest part of your chest underneath your armpits. For women, ensure this measurement encompasses your bust.

Front

This measurement should be taken from the top of the front of your shirt collar to your beltline. For women, ensure this measurement takes your bust into account.

Back

Just like the front, this measurement should be taken from the top of the back of your shirt collar to your rear beltline.

Crotch

This measurement should be taken from your front beltline to your rear beltline. Be sure to pull the measuring tape nice and taut. This distance is very important for ensuring that your Kigu-Onesie will fit snugly in the crotch. If applicable, you should take this measurement while padded.

Shoulders

This measurement should be taken from the seam on your t-shirt where the sleeve begins, across the high part of your back and shoulders, and to the other seam on the opposite sleeve. This point is generally past your shoulder bone.
