Step 2: Take your measurements

TIP: Each chest measurement should be taken all the way around your torso. The measuring tape should not compress your chest tissue but should touch your body. If the measuring tape is not touching your body - it’s too loose.
(1) Underarm measurement:Take this measurement just above where your chest tissue begins. The measuring tape should lay just below your armpits and at the beginning of your chest tissue.
(2) The largest part of the chest: Take this measurement around the torso and chest where the most chest tissue is (usually around the nipples, but this will vary person to person).
(3) Underbust measurement: Take this measurement directly under your chest tissue, where you would measure your band size for a bra.

Shoulder width: Place the measuring tape at the point of one of your shoulders. Then stretch the tape to the point of your other shoulder. Don't wrap the measuring tape all the way around your shoulders for this measurement--just point-to-point.
