Thinking of ordering custom made clothing online? Think again.
The Internet is jammed with sites that tell you how easy it is to take your own measurements then send them in for a garment made just for you. What they fail to mention is that up to 40% of clothing measured by customers doesn’t actually fit.
Online shoppers may be enticed by lower prices and the convenience of shopping from home, but if the end result doesn’t meet their expectations and it’s a hassle to return them, what good is it?
Unless you’re a master clothier…chances are you shouldn’t be measuring yourself.
The only way to truly achieve the correct fit for custom clothing is to be measured by an experienced custom clothier. He can correctly identify your body type, knows the proper way to hold a tape and how specific areas of the body should be measured. For instance there is a different way the tape should be held when taking a waist measurement than a chest measurement and an exact place the tape should be placed for shoulder-to-shoulder measurements.
