At Avanyah, we offer garments that fit your figure in a modern and stylish way. If you prefer a looser fit, we recommend that you consider ordering the garment you want slightly larger. Our sizes are based on body measurements in centimetres, which you will find under each product on the Avanyah Clothing website. By providing these measurements, we hope to avoid indiscriminate bulk orders, which often result in countless returns, to avoid unnecessary hassle and help the environment.
To ensure you order the correct size, we have included a detailed description of our size charts and information on how to accurately measure yourself. It is important to use a tape measure and make sure it is close to your body when you measure. Please refer to our size charts to find the right size for you. Please note that all measurements for Avanyah garments are approximate and in exceptional cases there may be slight variations in our handmade garments. If you require exact millimeter measurements for a particular garment or would like personal advice, please email us and we will be happy to assist you!

When it comes to buying t-shirts and tops, getting the right size is crucial for both comfort and style. Wearing something too tight can be restrictive, while something too loose can look unflattering. With so many different brands and styles available, it can be confusing to know which size to choose. That’s why we’ve put together this guide to help you find the perfect fit. Whether you’re shopping online or in-store, these tips will help you navigate the world of t-shirt and top sizing with confidence.
- CHEST (A)
Measure around the fullest part, place the tape measure under your arms and make sure it lies flat on your back. Make sure the tape measure fits snugly but does not pinch. If it is a little loose, about one finger should fit between the tape measure and your body.
- WAIST CIRCUMFERENCES (C)
Waist circumference is measured by placing the tape measure parallel to the floor and at the narrowest part of the torso, above the navel. This measurement is different from the waist measurement, which is taken on the finished garment. The waist measurement is taken by placing the trousers flat on a surface and measuring from side to side across the waistband.
- LENGTH (X)
Right next to the neckline vertically from the shoulder seam to the hip seam. Measurements are always taken at the marked points, we also use this method of measurement for shirts, tops, hoodies, jackets etc.
SLEEVE LENGTH (F)
Place the tape measure at the shoulder, using the outside edge of the shoulder bone or the shoulder seam of the sleeve. The arm length of a long-sleeved garment is measured in a straight line from the elbow to the wrist. About 2 cm is usually added to this measurement. The arm length of a short-sleeved garment is measured from the same starting point in a straight line to the desired area of the end of the sleeve.
jackets | hoodies
kimonos | dresses
sweaters | vests

With our helpful tips and measurements, you can easily determine the right size for your body type and preferences. So, let’s get started and find your perfect fit for your next adventure!
- INNER ARM LENGTH (H)
Place the tape measure low under the armpit, just below the shoulder bone, and follow it along the inside of the arm to the end of the sleeve till the end. To this measurement is usually added about 2 centimeters. The arm length of a short-sleeved garment is measured from the same starting point in a straight line to the end of the sleeve.
- HIPS (C)
Measure around the fullest part of your hip. Make sure the tape measure is flat against your back and slightly loose. A finger should fit between the measuring tape and your body.
- INSIDE LENGTH (D)
Again, place the tape measure low under the armpit, just below the shoulder bone, and follow the edge to the bottom of the item of clothing.
- OPEN SLEEVE
Measure the width of the open beginning of the sleeve. Preferably along the seam when the sleeve of the garment is lying flat.

With our helpful tips and measurements, you can easily find the right size for your body type and preferences. So get started and find your perfect fit for your next adventure!
- HIP CIRCUMFERENCES (H)
The lower hip area is 20 cm below the waist. For our skinny fits, you only need the hip measurement. Stand relaxed and put your feet together. Hold the tape measure firmly and parallel to the floor. Make sure you measure the circumference at the strongest part of the hip.
- LEG LENGTH (X)
Please note that the leg length is the length of the inseam in the dress size. It is measured by holding the tape measure perpendicular to the floor, from the groin to the ankle.
- UPPER THIGH (O)
Measure around the fullest part of the thigh, about 1″ below the crotch, keeping the tape straight and parallel to the floor.
- INNER LEG (Z)
Measure from the top of the inner leg along the inseam to the bottom of the leg just below the ankle. If you have difficulty measuring yourself, try measuring the inseam length of a pair of trousers that fits you well. The crotch length will tell you what length you should consider when buying a pair of trousers. To get an accurate measurement, place the tape measure as high as possible on the inside of your thigh. Place the tape measure flat against your leg and measure the bottom of your ankle. Take this measurement without shoes.
- WAIST (C)
Measure around your natural waist. Make sure the tape measure lies flat on your back. Again, make sure the tape measure fits snugly but is not pulled too tight. A finger should fit between the tape measure and your body, this is always a good criterion.
