Do you want to know how to measure a thobe to decide which one is your perfect pick? To measure for a thobe, you'll need a flexible tape measure and possibly a friend to assist you. Follow these steps:
- Have the person stand with their arms relaxed at their sides.
- Measure across the back, from the end of one shoulder seam to the end of the other.
- Wrap the tape measure around the widest part of the chest or bust, ensuring it's parallel to the ground.
- Extend the arm out straight to the side at a slight angle.
- Measure from the shoulder seam down to the wrist.
- Decide on the desired length for the thobe (e.g., ankle-length, calf-length, etc.).
- Measure from the highest point of the shoulder to the chosen length.
Collar Circumference (if applicable):
- If the thobe has a collar, measure around the base of the neck where the collar will sit.
Izaar or Sirwal (if applicable):
- Measure around the waist or hips, depending on where the garment will sit.
Keep in mind that it's essential to measure while the person is wearing the typical undergarments they would wear with a thobe. Additionally, take note of any specific sizing guidelines provided by the manufacturer or retailer. If buying online, refer to the sizing chart provided by the seller to ensure the best fit.
