BOTTOM – Sizing and measurement guide
Sizing and Measurement Guide
To ensure that your bespoke custom faja will fit your body perfectly it is important that your measurements are taken accurately. Please take the relevant measurements required for your garment using a tape measure and following the instructions on the diagram below. We have also included a short video to show how the measurements are taken on our models.
Diagram 1. Contours and Heights – Legs and Body Trunk
Under bust contour
1. Take the measure of this contour, around the torso just in the line under the bust.
2. This height is taken, placing the tape measure from the line under the bust, completely straight to the floor.
3. Take the measure of this contour around the navel, between the lowest rib and hip, identified by bending the body to the side.
4. This height is taken, by placing the tape measure, from the bone where the leg begins, in the side above the hip, completely straight to the floor.
5. Take the measure of this contour around the mid- hip, middle point between waist and hip, right in the crease of the buttocks.
6. Take the height from this point, completely straight to the floor.
7. Take the measure of this contour around the fullest part of the hip and buttock.
8. Take the height from this hip contour point, completely straight to the floor.
9 & 10. Take the measure of these contours, placing the tape measure completely straight around the upper point of each leg, where the groin is.
11. Take the height from the groin, inner fold between the legs, with the tape measure completely straight to the floor.
For short and mid thigh fajas, you must take the measure of the contours (9) and (10) of the groin in each leg, and the measure of the contour (12A – short) or (12B – mid thigh) on the thighs where you want the length of your faja to be.
Also, very important, the distance from the groin (inner fold between the legs) to this length (13A – short) or (13B – mid thigh).
Above the knee
If the length of your faja is above the knee, you should take the above measures and the contour around the leg above the knee (14), and the distance from the groin to this length(15).
Under the knee and to the ankle
If the length of the faja in the legs, is to the calf or ankle, apart from the above outline, take the contours below the calf or where the gastrocnemius muscle ends (16) and the contour (18) at 2 cm (1 inch) above the ankle. Likewise the corresponding distances from the groin to each of the previous contours (17) and (19).
Diagram 2. lengths and Contours – Torso and Arms
Lengths – Torso
1. Take this distance from the point located at the base of the neck on the shoulders (shoulders straight line below the ear) to the line under the bust. This is a diagonal line.
2. Take this length from the little hole that forms in the union of the clavicles, at the base of our neck to below the bust line.
3. If you order a long Bra to the waist, vest or jacket, take this length, from the bust line below to the navel.
4. This distance is taken when the garment must be below the waist, without exceeding the hip.
5. Take this lateral extent under the arm, from the armpit to the line under the bust.
6. Take this length from the fold is made in the base of the neck with shoulder to shoulder where it ends (where the sleeve begins).
7. If your brassiere or girdle wearing sleeves, this distance should not miss. It is taken from where begins the arm at the shoulder to the crease of the armpit
with the arm, short sleeve Japanese type.
8. This contour is taken around the chest, above the bust line. You must either raise arms so that the tape measure is well above and that its location is straight back and forth. To register the measure, the arms should be down and position the chest at rest.
9. This contour is taken around the chest, just below the bust.
10. Take the measure of this contour around the navel.
Outline of the Middle Hip
11. This contour is taken around the distance (3A) or the middle hip, for those garments requested longest waist.
12. This contour is essential and is taken around the arm at the armpit above the shoulders.
13. This measure refers to the contour to be taken in the highest part of the arm at the armpit (short sleeved Japanese type), with the tape measure straight back and forth and unadjusted.
Measures depending on the length of the sleeves
For short sleeves above the elbow, take the contours of the highest part of the arm at the armpit (13) and on the desired length of the sleeve (14A), and very important, the distances from the shoulder, when the arm begins, to the shortest sleeve (6) and to the desired length (14).
If the sleeve is 3/4, take the contours at the height of the armpit (13), above the elbow (14A) and contours, below the elbow (15A) and even long sleeve 3/4 (16A). Thus also the corresponding distances from the shoulder, where the arm begins, to each of these points (6), (14), (15) and (16)
If the sleeve is long to the wrist, apart from the above outline, take the contour around the arm, 2 cm (1 inch) above the wrist (17A) and its distance from the shoulder (17)
