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.

What’s my size? Blouse fitting guide.

A guide to choosing the right size blouse.

Trutex blouses are sized by chest size so you’ll need to measure your child’s chest size to find the best fitting blouse.

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.

What’s my size? Girls trousers fitting guide

How to measure your waist
Measure around the waist at the natural waistline (smallest part). In younger children this is usually midway between the bottom rib and hip bone.

Inside leg length
When measuring make sure you are stood up straight, with shoes on. Measure from the top of the leg (inside near to the crotch area) down to where you would like the trouser to fit. This is usually an inch or so from the floor or where you feel you would like the length to finish.
