Measurement Guide

How to find the perfect fit?

We guide you to find the perfect size for you!

At MAXIMUS, we offer a large assortment of different brands and styles, each one fitting a little different. With our goal of creating the best shopping experience possible and to reassure you that your shirt and pants will fit just right, MAXIMUS has added key measurements to all of our product listings.

Please note that all measurements reflect the clothing, not the body. It is also possible that the fabric of the garment affects the way it fits. Measurements are shown in inches and are taken flat. Now, go get your favorite t-shirt and favorite pair of pants, along with a measuring tape and you’re all set!

SHIRTS, T-SHIRTS, KNIT TOPS AND SWEATERS

TOPS

CHEST : Place measuring tape 1 inch under armpit and measure horizontally.

BELLY : Place measuring tape where the belly is at its strongest and measure horizontally (about the 3rd button from the bottom of a shirt or the middle of the top).

BODY LENGTH : Place measuring tape next to the collar, at the highest point of the shoulder, and measure vertically to the bottom of the garment.

SLEEVE LENGTH : This measure is taken in two steps. First, place measuring tape at the center of the back, just below the collar, and measure horizontally to the shoulder seam. Next, measure from the shoulder seam to the bottom of the sleeve. The sum of these two measurements gives you the length of the sleeve.
