How to Measure Your Sweatshirt Size

It goes without saying that one of the most popular pieces of clothing is the sweatshirt, especially if you love playing games, like to work out or you are just simply a proud supporter of your local sports team whether it is a basketball team, a football team, etc. Due to the fact that sweatshirts are so popular, more and more people buy them every year but not all of the buyers know how to properly measure the size of a sweatshirt in order to get the best possible fit.
Measuring a sweatshirt can be very tricky business because they are cut differently from regular T-shirts and their sizes also vary according to the sex of the person wearing them however it is important to keep in mind that a good portion of manufacturers sell unisex styles and sizes which makes it a bit easier for buyers, nevertheless you need to know how to measure them for future reference. Let’s take a look at some of the steps you can follow to properly measure a sweatshirt:
Step 1
The most basic step is to check the size chart provided in the product page of the site you are planning to buy from. If you are buying from places such as eBay or Amazon you can always double check with the seller if the product size and specs isn’t clear. If you are buying from the store of an official sports site such as the NFL shop then you will have several simple options to choose from so by just knowing the size of the shirt you are wearing you will be able to pick the most appropriate sweatshirt size.
Step 2
If you are buying a sweatshirt from a retail outlet then make sure not to wear anything bulky beneath the sweatshirt by the time you try it out. Grabbing the shoulders of the sweatshirt and visually measuring it against what you are wearing is usually the worst thing you can do because your body is not a 2D model, it also has depth!
Step 3
If you don’t know whether your t-shirt size will be the same as your sweatshirt size then grab a measuring tape for clothing and Google your sweatshirt size in order to find out if you are a small, medium, large, etc. Remember that manufacturing companies measure clothe pieces differently which is why knowing your t-shirt and sweatshirt size is of the utmost importance.
