Both women and men and children love them. The most important thing - to pick them up on the figure. Having correctly defined the size of T-shirts, you will look not only sporty, but also stylish and beautiful. How to choose these items of clothing?

## How to determine the size of T-shirts for men?

So, first you need to measure the chest girth using a measuring tape. The size of T-shirts for men is calculated as follows: ninety eight centimeters is 44-46, or S. Ninety-nine - one hundred - 46-48, or M. If the man’s chest is between a hundred and a hundred and ten centimeters, it’s already 48-50 , or L. With the results of one hundred eleven - one hundred eighteen centimeters, a T-shirt is purchased one size larger.

Things XXL, or 52–54, are bought with a chest girth of no more than one hundred and twenty two centimeters. Well, and t-shirts of the big sizes are designated by number 54, or XXXL.

## Patterns for women

So, with men, everything is clear. But what about the size of T-shirts for women? Here, the indicators are slightly different. Seventy-six centimeters is 42-44, or XS, eighty is 44-46, or S. With a breast volume of eighty-eight centimeters a t-shirt of 46-48 size, or M is purchased, from eighty-eight to ninety-six - 48-50, or L , from ninety six to one hundred - 50-52, or XL, from one hundred to one hundred four - XXL. However, the ideal option for selecting the necessary thing is, of course, fitting.

## How not to be mistaken?

Choosing the necessary size of T-shirts, you need to remember some more features. You can’t go wrong if you look at the label underneath the collar from the inside on the things you wear. The label can also be on the side or bottom seam. On the label, as a rule, information about the manufacturer, data on the care of the product and size are indicated.

It is determined, as already mentioned, by American or European standards: in Latin letters or numbers. The main thing - do not forget that in different countries, the same dimensions may differ slightly from each other. The fact is that many manufacturers began to engage in the manufacture of clothing before the same standards were established. As a result, they had to develop their own. Nevertheless, basically everyone is trying to stick to the standard of standard size that has been created.

And one more thing. The size of the T-shirts is better to choose, also considering the height of the person. The fact is that the volume of the chest can be quite large. At the same time growth is small. In a word, non-standard figure. That is, in any case, the most reliable way is fitting.

## Do not forget about shrinkage

Remember also that both women's and men's sizes of T-shirts can change literally after the very first wash. Things can sit down, that is, decrease in size. This is not surprising, because shrinkage is the natural behavior of natural fabrics that are not treated before washing with special methods and means. Clothing tends to sit up to 5% of the original size. This must be taken into account before purchasing.

Inherent shrinkage of practically all the t-shirts from the not so expensive category. Expensive brands usually do not sit down. And this is no secret. It's not tissue, and an additional stage of its preparation. The material is initially subjected to shrinkage. Only after that sewn him a shirt.

Manufacturers of the average price category take shrinkage into account before manufacture. Therefore, the products already indicate the sizes that they will acquire after washing. Accordingly, one should not be surprised that the T-shirt you buy turns out to be slightly larger than stated on the label.

In short, observing all these rules, you will by no means go wrong with the choice of the right thing. It is not difficult at all.
