Sometimes, big and tall clothes sizes look like a stereotype.
So who needs to wear big and tall sizes? How big do you need to be, before regular sizes won’t work for you?
This is a good question, and it deserves a good answer.
Some of the information can be found in sizing charts, and some of it needs to be learned from personal experience.
Sizing for Big and Tall
If you truly need big and tall sizes, chances are you’ve noticed.
You know all the problems, and the solution is big and tall sizes.
There are some rules of thumb that you can follow, and should follow, when buying clothes.
The most basic rule is this: order “tall” sizes if you are 6’2″ or taller, and you chest size is greater than your waist size.
Order “big” sizes if you are under 6’2″ and your waist size exceeds your chest size. But how do you know your measurements?
Most of us know our height, but to get your chest size and waist size, you’ll need to measure yourself. It’s easier than you think.
It’s important to note that different clothing brands will size their products differently, so make sure that you consult the correct sizing chart when you measure yourself.
