Women's Shirt Measurements: Effortless Ways to Look Hot in Your Outfit!

Are you looking at different women's shirt measurements to find the right one to get? If so, then you better know how to measure women's shirt length and width properly or you're going to be in trouble!


You see, while it's tempting to rip open the bag and sink your teeth into that sweet shirt that you just picked up, those shirts need a bit of love and attention – but don' t worry, we are here to help you with that!


How to Measure the Length of a Shirt? A Brilliant Way To Make Your Life Easier

When it comes to women's clothes, especially t-shirts, the length of the shirt is very important. The length can make or break a look, so it's important to know how to measure the length of your shirt properly. It doesn't matter if these are inches or centimeters—just make sure you have them written down for later reference!


When you're measuring, keep in mind that there are two different ways to do so: measuring from the shoulder seam to where you want the hem and measuring from your bust point down.

You can also measure from your underarm to where you want the hem, but this method is less accurate because it doesn't take into account how much extra fabric there will be around your bust area.

Here's what you need:


  • Measuring tape
  • Paper and pen (or calculator)


The first thing you should do is measure your own body from shoulder to waist. This will give you a rough idea of how long your shirts should be.

A good rule of thumb is that your shirts should come no further than 2 inches above your waistline. If they're too long, try folding them under and tucking them into pants or leggings (if they go over the top).

Should you Always use a Ruler to Measure Shirt Length? Nah, You Can Also Measure it  With Hands, too!


The measurement can be taken with a tape measure or ruler; however, if you do not have access to either of those tools, you can use your hand to help you get an accurate measurement.


To measure with your hand, simply lay the shirt flat on a table or other flat surface and measure from your wrist bone to your fingertips. If you have long arms, you may need to add a few inches onto this measurement.

Whoa! Bonus Tip to Measure Shirt Length…


The two easiest measurements to find are shoulder to waist and shoulder to knee. Just lie down on a bed or table, and let the fabric fall across your figure. Then, transfer your numbers to the chart below. The chart measures in inches and centimeters, so use your best judgment. Can you see the pattern developing? You'll need all that number crunching for what's next!

A Perfect Sassy Guideline on How to Measure Width of a Shirt


The width of your t-shirt depends on how you want it to fit. If you want it slim fitting, choose a size that is two inches narrower than your actual measurement at its narrowest point (the waist).


If you prefer a looser fit, choose a size that is two inches wider than your actual measurement at its widest point (the shoulders or chest). Remember, the material of your shirt will affect the width you need to order. 

To measure the width of your shirt:


  1. Stand straight with arms at your sides and feet together.
  2. Bend forward slightly from the waist until there is no more than an inch between your chin and the floor (A).
  3. This will ensure that the tape measure passes over your shoulder blades when measuring shoulder widths instead of across your back where it may be higher due to muscle development or posture problems.


As we said, women's shirts come in a variety of widths. From slim to oversized, you may have a preference for the fit of your shirt.


The best way to determine what size you need is by measuring the width of your shoulders with a tape measure.

Measurements are in inches and refer to the shirt itself, not the sleeve length. If your shoulders measure more than 18 inches, you need a wide shirt.


If your shoulders measure between 17 and 18 inches, you need an average or regular fit shirt. If your shoulders measure less than 17 inches, you need a slim-fit or skinny shirt.


How to Measure Shirt Size in CM? Get to Know Here!

Hey Ladies, to get the perfect fit, measure your favorite shirt – lay it flat and bust it out with a tape measure. The formula is below. Use it well!


Women's shirt sizes can be confusing, especially when you're shopping online. Even if you know your measurements, there are still some important things you should know before you buy something new


Measure the fullest part of your bustline (or where your bra band sits), keeping the tape measure horizontal. Don't pull too tightly as this could distort the measurement.


Measure around the narrowest part of your torso, usually just above or below your belly button but above hip bone level. It is usually 2-4" above your belly button for most people.


If there isn't a clear indentation in your skin then wrap the tape around yourself at this point then mark where it meets instead and make sure it is parallel with floor level and neither tight nor too loose.


Measure around the fullest part of your hips. With feet together, wrap the tape measure around one hip bone at its widest point. (It is usually slightly higher than where you took your waist measurement), across the buttocks, which would be approximately 1″ below where you would wear pants/skirt waistband), keeping it parallel to the floor. This is your hip size.

Sleeve Length:

Measure from the center back of neck (where a shirt collar would sit) and down over the shoulder, pass elbow and down to wrist the bone (or where a shirt sleeve would end). The measurement is taken on a flat surface, not around your body.

The Shoulder Length/Yoke:

Measure from 1 inch (2.5 cm) below your armpit, around the outside of one arm, across your back and down to the same point on your other arm.


“So what's up ladies? See how to measure shirt size in cm? It's easier than you think. All you need is your sexy stats—your bust size plus two inches and the length of your arms. Discover the art of flattering your curves, you deserve a shirt to make you shine!”

How to measure t-shirt size in inches? Take the Guesswork Out and Be Fit!

Wondering how to measure t-shirt size in inches? We're here to help. Don't let the perfect top slip through your fingers!


  1. Stand up straight and keep the tape measure flat against your body.


  1. Measure around your chest at its widest point (usually at the nipples). If it's too tight, add 2 inches; if it's too loose, subtract 2 inches from this measurement. This is your bust size!


  1. Measure around your waist at its narrowest point (usually above or below your belly button). If it's too tight, add 4 inches; if it's too loose, subtract 4 inches from this measurement. This is your waist size!


  1. For shoulders measure from the base of your neck (where it meets with your shoulder) down to where you want the sleeve of your shirt to end. This measurement should be taken while wearing a shirt with long sleeves so that there's no confusion about where exactly they should end up once they're rolled up or tucked into pants/skirts/etcetera!


  1. Measure around each leg at its widest point (usually about 8" below the crotch). If one leg is longer than the other by more than 1" (or half of a pant size), go up in pants sizes until both legs are even lengths (that means no extra fabric bunching up on one side or another).


It is critical that your t-shirt fits well. This can be difficult to gauge when you're alone, with only your mirror and a ruler for company. Instead, use these simple tips to accurately—and easily—measure your size.


“In a nutshell, it's not a hard concept. Cut out your shirt to the correct dimensions, then measure those dimensions. If you're off by even a fraction of an inch, the shirt won't fit. The chest area should be that measurement multiplied by 2!”
