Take It from Top Shirt Manufacturers: How to Choose the Right Fit for Your Body Type?
Updated: Apr 6
Did you know that almost 60% of all consumers would “do almost anything” to not deal with returning an item they bought online?
Not being satisfied with a purchase continues to be a significant issue for up and coming online retailers and brick and mortar stores as it leaves a rather unpleasant taste in one’s mouth and can negatively affect further performance. And for anyone operating in the clothing manufacturing business, having not optimal sizes for your line of clothing is an easy way to generate such dissatisfaction from your clientele.
Fortunately, as Jacky Angel, we know how important it is to secure the right sizes for your custom designed shirts and we employ various methods to assure you can obtain a product that fits your expectations.
For this week, let's take a look at some of the tricks that top shirt manufacturers use to assess which shirt fits what body type. By understanding these techniques, you'll be better equipped to find the right fit for your unique body shape and size and make sure your brand can serve your clientele in a more effective manner!
3 Tricks Top Shirt Manufacturers Follow When Assessing Which Shirt Fits What Body Type
At Jacky Angel, we understand how the fitting process is one of the core components of every successful shirt order and thus aim to provide excellent service when it comes to measurements and selection of fabrics.
Here are some of the tricks we follow when assessing which shirt fits who:
Body measurements: We listen to your demands and feedback, and we take great care to obtain precise body measurements of target customers to create shirts that fit well. We consider measurements such as neck size, chest width, waist width, sleeve length, and shoulder width to ensure demands can meet expectations. These measurements are then used to create a custom fit chart that helps customers choose the right size for their body type.
Fabric stretch and drape: We know our way around fabrics and materials - and that certainly helps when understanding who should wear what size!
The fabric used to make a shirt can affect how well it fits. We assess the fabric's stretch and drape to ensure that it conforms to the body's curves without feeling too tight or restrictive. A fabric that stretches well can accommodate different body types and provide a comfortable fit, while a fabric with good drape can create a smooth silhouette.
Fit testing: We also conduct fit testing to assess how well a shirt fits different body types. We use fit models or real customers to test the shirts and make adjustments as needed. This process can help us identify common fit issues and ensure that our shirts fit well on a variety of body types. During our design process, we may also use computer simulations to predict how a shirt will fit before it's produced!

How do I take accurate body measurements for a well-fitting shirt?
To take accurate body measurements for a shirt, use a flexible tape measure and have someone assist you or your team. You can measure around your neck, chest, waist, hips, and sleeve length, as well as the distance between your shoulders. Refer to a size chart or consult with us to determine the best size for the body types you are in the market for!
Common fit issues include the shirt being too tight or too loose in certain areas, the sleeves being too long or short, the collar not fitting properly, and the shirt bunching or wrinkling in certain areas.
Top shirt manufacturers address these issues through careful fit testing and adjustments thanks to various machines in their factories! To find out more about some of the core technology that fuels our industry, check out our article detailing the subject!
