Pants Measuring Process

Before You Begin

Gather

  • Fabric tape measure
  • Sharp pencil or fine pen
  • Ten to fifteen minutes

Find

  • A willing measuring partner (if available) The majority of the measurements can easily be self-taken, we have found the process to be faster if you have someone readily available to assist you. In addition, you could use a local tailor or seamstress. Just take in this form.

Wear

  • A pair of proper fitting motorpants if you have a pair. Or something very form fitting.
  • If you do not have these items, any form-fitting clothing will suffice (To include a t-shirt and boxers). No jeans, and empty your pockets!

About Measuring

  • When taking measurements the tape should be held flat against the body; it should be held snug enough so as not to droop, but never so tight as to feel restrictive.
  • All measurements should be taken in centimeters to the nearest quarter (.25) centimeter. A tape can be purchased at Joanne's Fabrics. Or, I will send you one.
  • Do not add wiggle room to your measurements. We will adjust the fit based off of your selected preferences and build. All measurements are “skin measurements”.

After you have taken all measurements, head over to our Custom Measurements page with your order number.
