The Ultimate Guide to Measuring for our Eco-Friendly Hoodies

Hey there, hoodie lovers! Are you tired of buying hoodies that are either too tight or too baggy? Well, fret no more! We've got you covered (literally) with our new range of hoodie sizes. But before you dive headfirst into the world of cozy comfort, you need to know how to measure yourself properly. Don't worry, it's easier than trying to untangle a slinky!

Why is measuring important?

Now, you might be thinking, "Why do I need to measure myself? Can't I just eyeball it?" Oh, dear reader, if only it were that simple! Measuring is like the secret ingredient in a recipe—it ensures the perfect fit. Plus, it saves you the hassle of returning your hoodie because it's too snug or looks like a potato sack on you.

What you'll need

Before you embark on your measuring adventure, gather a few trusty tools. Grab a flexible measuring tape (the kind that doesn't resemble a construction worker's tool belt), a mirror (to admire your measuring skills), and maybe a pencil to write it down.

Step 1: Bust out the tape

Wrap the measuring tape around the fullest part of your chest, making sure it's parallel to the ground. Take a deep breath and relax—no need to suck in that gut! Jot down the measurement and give yourself a pat on the back (or chest) for completing the first step.

Step 2: Embrace your waist

Now, it's time to find your waistline. Don't worry, we're not talking about the one you had in high school. Locate the narrowest part of your torso, usually a couple of inches above your belly button. Wrap the tape around this magical spot and record the measurement. Congratulations, you've found your waist and your way to the next step!

Step 3: Hip hip hooray!

Time to give your hips some love! Wrap the tape around the fullest part of your hips, making sure it's snug but not too tight. If you're struggling to find your hips, just imagine you're doing the cha-cha slide—slide to the left, slide to the right, and voila! You've got your hip measurement.

Step 4: Arm yourself with sleeve length

Extend one arm out to the side, like you're about to give someone a big bear hug. Measure from the center of your back, over your shoulder, and down to your wrist. If you're feeling extra fancy, you can even do a little catwalk to show off your measuring skills. Meow!

Step 4: The bust cheat

Thinking maybe you need a comparative number?  Find a hoodie you love and measure the width across, from under one arm to the other.

Step 5: The final touch—length

Stand up straight and measure from the base of your neck (where your hoodie's hood would rest) down to your desired length. Whether you prefer a cropped look or something that covers your derrière, it's all about personal preference. You do you, hoodie aficionado!

And there you have it, folks! You're now armed with the knowledge to measure yourself like a pro. Remember, when it comes to hoodies, the perfect fit is like finding a unicorn—it's rare, but oh-so-magical. So, grab that measuring tape, get cozy, and prepare to rock your new hoodie like a boss!
