Fur coats and jackets are different kind of clothing, compared to regular clothes. They are meant to fit differently, as they are intended to fit snugly, giving a fashionable look. The appropriate measurements are essential for a good result.
As you may already know, buying clothes from a picture can be a great challenge for sellers and buyers. Wrong measurements may lead to loss of time and money for both parts. Especially for fur clothing, a luxurious and costly kind of clothing.
However, you must not be afraid. Every fur apparel is handmade. Every step of manufacturing process is made by experienced hands. Because of that, fur manufacturers are able to offer a perfect fit for every body and taste. Some simple measurements are only needed.
These measurements are presented in this guide.
Taking the Measurements
There are two options to appropriately take your measurements.
- Measure a cloth that you already own and fits you appropriately.
- Take your own body measurements.
If you choose the first option, do not measure a fur garment that you already own. Prefer a regular coat, because the measurements that you will take will be as close to the design pattern as possible. In addition, make sure that you will measure a loose-fitting coat, because you will be probably wearing winter clothes underneath your fur apparel. Otherwise, if you prefer a slim-fitting coat, you can measure a more regular fit coat. Finally, use a flat surface and the button up the coat.
For every measurement use a measuring tape! The measurements that are needed are the following:
When you are gauging the length of a fur coat, you will measure it from the base of the neck to the bottom of the hem. If the coat has a collar on it, you will not measure the collar. If you are trying to determine the length you want, measure from the base of your neck to the area where you want the coat to fall, such as your thighs or your ankles.
The length of the sleeves is also important. To gauge the length of the sleeves, measure from the neckline all the way to the cuff of the sleeve. To determine the proper length for you, measure from the base of the neck to your wrist to ensure you get the right size.
As you measure your chest size, it is important to measure at the largest point. This will ensure the fur coats you buy will fit properly. A fur coat should be fitted but not tight.Taking this measurement more than once will ensure you get it right so you don’t have a coat that is too small for you.
