Measuring Tips for Sellers & Buyers


You decide to sell of all the items in your wardrobe that no longer fit, well after sobbing for 3 days because those jeans you wore before your 1st was born no longer goes past your knee.

You patiently add them to ebay, upload the photos and click start. You think you have done enough…. Nope. The questions then start.

“Whats the waist measurement”
“Inside leg please”
“Can you get me the hypotenuse of the triangular formation of haystacks”

OK so not the last one, but you get the picture.

To help you as a buyer, and as a seller just add these little things into your listings. It takes a minute more, but its much worth it in the long run.

Imagine this senario – You wake up and find your most favourite pair of jeans in the whole wide world has split across the bum cheek. There is no way of salvaging them. The shop you had them from, no longer stocks them, and the label inside is so faded you cant even see what size they are. Before you throw them out (or bury them in the garden) take these following measurements. Waist, Hips, Rise, Inside leg & hem width.

 

Dont stretch the fabric, Keep it relaxed while you take your measurements.

You will never get a perfect match, but at least you can try.

Same goes for tops too.

If you measure armpit to hem or neck to hem, specify this in your listings

So now when you come to buy, or sell, you will have some of the more valuable information ready. Always remember, just because the jeans say they are a 14, doesnt mean they measure a 14 😉

You are not a size 8 !!
