How to Measure Yourself

Which size should I choose?

All products are sold by the international sizing scheme used by the designer/brand. 

As X sizing can vary considerably at times between different brands, a size guide is provided in the description of each individual item that is sold in X sizes. Simply browse through our products and find what you like, then open the product page to see what size you need.

Most of our trousers and shorts are sized by the waist measurement in centimetres. Some of the trousers will have a "T" or "XL" after them, for example 87T or 102XL. This means "tall" and "extra long" and both will have extra length in the leg and an average inseam of 98cm.

We understand that finding the right size is the most confronting task of buying online. We have worked very hard on trying to develop a method to ascertain a garments true size (by measuring the actual chest underarm to underarm) of the garments.

How to take your measurements

Neck - Measure around the base of the neck, allowing a finger width of room

Chest - Measure loosely around the broadest part of the chest

Waist - Measure tightly around the waist , where you wear your trousers

Hips - Measure around the seat (bum) and top of thighs , firmly measure

Sleeve - Measure from the centre back (under the collar) to shoulder point then to wrist/cuff

Leg - Measure from the crutch to the cuff of the trouser (inside leg)

Here we are assuming you have an accurate cloth measuring tape, a metal tape measure or ruler is not going to cut it! If you do not have one of these then you can purchase them from any haberdashery or fabric store. 

The most accurate way of measuring is to take garments that fit well...lay them out and then measure them.

You can then either email the results to us at sales@kingsize.com.au or look at the brand specification chart above and make a decision on your size.
