Thread: Onesie sizing?

  1. #1

    Default Onesie sizing?

    I need some help. So I ordered one from baby-pants but it's too big. Can't seem to return it. So I am gonna try to get another one. I measured myself though and am a little confused which one I should get.

    http://www.baby-pants.com/onezie.php

    My measurements:
    Length: 35"
    Chest: 46"
    Waist: 42"

    I think you are missing one critical measurement.
    Take a tape measure and pin it at either the top of the right or left shoulder and run it down under and thru your crotch and back up to the pinned point on the shoulder.
    This measurement is called a torso measurement. If you give this measurement to the place you are buying your onesies from you should be able to avoid the excessive
    bulky sloppy fit and get a fitting somewhat like you would with a leotard.
    A simple way to eliminate excess bulk is to create a false waist line by pinching the fabric at the waist - a half inch fold results in 1 inch less in the overall length of the garment. The folded fabric could be sewn inside the
    garment or a waist band on the outside.
    A easy low cost way and you could cinch up the waist by sewing in an elastic band to fit more closely to your body measurements.
    We have ways to make you snug as a bug in your clothing. If the bulkiness is in the crotch the same method could be used here all be it but warning you may reduce the amount
    of play in the leg band at the thigh. Like making a snap panel in the crotch bottom if one is not there. After awhile it helps to know what you can do to clothing to make a custom fit a real fitting.

    It did after one, I just washed it again last night and it was maybe slightly smaller than after the first "big shrink" mind you though, i ordered a large and I'm just over 6ft with a 34/35" waist and have a decent chest size. I like the other posters idea of possible sewing a seem strip, it's actually pretty engenius
