What’s my size? Blazer fitting guide

A guide to choosing the right school blazer

Choosing the right size blazer is key to getting a blazer that lasts and also feels comfortable for your child to wear. We recommend watching the short video here, for a few tips and techniques to find the right size for your child.

Blazers are bought by chest size, so you will need your child’s chest measurement to start. To take your child’s chest measurement, measure around the fullest part of their chest. For younger children, place the tape measure a few inches below their armpit and measure their chest there. For older children, particularly girls, the fullest part of their chest might be a little lower. Your child will be able to tell you what feels comfortable to them. Be sure not to pull the tape measure too tight as this can lead to buying shirts or blouses which are too small and strain at the buttons.

School shirt fitting guide.

A guide to choosing the right boys school shirt.

To find the right size school shirt for your child, you will need their collar measurement.

To measure their collar, wrap the tape measure gently around the base of their neck. Put two fingers between the tape measure and their skin while you do this; this will ensure a more comfortable fit. Choose boys’ school shirts based on this measurement but do also check the chest measurement of the garment as well to make sure these two areas both fit. It’s better to have a comfortable, fitted chest and a slightly looser collar than a well-fitted collar and a chest that’s straining at the seams.

A guide to choosing the right senior boys Trutex trousers.

To choose the right size senior trousers for your child, you will need two measurements:

  • Waist – for a comfortable fit and decide if you need sturdy fit or classic fit

Measure your child’s waist by finding the narrowest part of their torso; this is normally a couple of inches above their hip bone and often, but not always, in line with the bellybutton. If your child has no natural narrower part to their torso, take their waist measurement from about halfway between the bottom of their rib cage and the top of their hip bone. Pull the tape measure so it’s snug but not tight against their waist and make sure they’re not holding their breath! You don’t need to add anything to the measurement for comfort as good quality school uniform will be designed with a little bit of ‘ease’ included.

  • Inside Leg – to decide if you require short, regular or long length

To take the inside leg measurement, ask your child to put on their school shoes and stand naturally. Run the tape measure down their inner leg, from their crotch to an inch or so above the ground where you’d like their trousers to finish. Try to ensure the tape measure is in a straight line, not wrapping around their leg, and don’t pull it too tight or they’ll end up with too-short, uncomfortable trousers.

What’s my size?  Senior skirt fitting guide.

A guide to choosing the right size senior skirt.

Senior skirts are sized by two measurements:  waist size and length of skirt, so you’ll need two measurements to get your right size:

  1. Waist

You’ll need to measure your child’s waist for girls skirts, even if the skirt style is designed to sit on their hips, it is the waist measurement that you will need.

Measure your child’s waist by finding the narrowest part of their torso; this is normally a couple of inches above their hip bone and often, but not always, in line with the bellybutton. If your child has no natural narrower part to their torso, take their waist measurement from about halfway between the bottom of their rib cage and the top of their hip bone. Pull the tape measure so it’s snug but not tight against their waist and make sure they’re not holding their breath! You don’t need to add anything to the measurement for comfort as good quality school uniform will be designed with a little bit of ‘ease’ included.

  1. Skirt Length

To take your child’s skirt measurement, it’s easier if they wear an existing school skirt or other skirt that they like the length of. Measure from their natural waist down to the hem of the skirt, ensuring the tape measure is in a straight line. You should also check their school’s uniform requirements for skirt length to make sure any item you buy adheres to regulations.

Below you’ll find 4 size guides to view depending on the style of skirt.
