To find your perfect fit it is important to measure yourself correctly. Here are the most significant parts of your body to measure when looking for your snow apparel.
It's essential to measure your chest. A tight fit will make you struggle when breathing. To measure your chest, place the end of the tape measure at the fullest part of your bust and wrap it around your body parallel to the floor.
It's also important that both your jacket and pants close properly, and that they stay closed during your ski day. Waist fit is important if you don't want to ski with your jacket untied on a below zero- day just because the waist is too small. To locate your waist you can bend sideways and seeing where you crease, roll up the waist to measure yourself and have an idea of your proper size.
Hips fit are also concerning bum size, and it is significant if you don't want to break your pants while sitting on a chairlift. A tight fit will create too much pressure, and it can damage the cloth. To measure yourself, stand with your feet together and measure the fullest part of your hip and bum.
The inseam is the distance from the uppermost part of your inside tight to your ankle. It means the length of the legs. Inseam is important as shorter ski pants will make the snow coming into your ski boots. Ski pants should also be a bit longer than your regular pants, as ski boots make you higher. Longer ski pants than your size will make your skis to get stuck in your binding.
