How to Measure for:

Undergarments and Jackets

Knickers

Unitards

Plastrons and Underarm Protectors

Gloves

Masks

UNDERGARMENTS and JACKETS

 Zen Warrior Armory's undergarments are made using the sizing guides below. Add one size up to determine the size of a fighting tunic. Our undergarments fit women and men very well, our fighting tunics only fit men. We carry inventory in the size scales listed, however our seamstresses can fit you regardless of your size or shape. Please call if you do need special fitting as they may need measurements other than the ones on the chart. Custom orders are an additional $20.00 over the usual price and may take as much as 7 days to complete.

Jacket Measurements

When measuring, make certain to get accurate measurements with a good tape measure.

MEN- We need four measurements please. Include these figures in the comments section of your order. Your chest should be measured as high as possible on the chest with the arms down. Your waist should be measured at the navel, not at the pants line. Record your height and weight and put your feet up and relax.

WOMEN- We need five measurements please. include these figures in the comments section of your order. Measure your chest at the largest place, your waist at the smallest place, and your hips at the largest. Please record your height and weight also.

KNICKERS

When measuring for your knickers, make certain to get an accurate (use a tape measure, not a string and a ruler) measurement of your waist.  MEN- measure your waist at your navel, not your pants line. WOMEN- measure your waist at the smallest place, and your hips at the largest place.  Since our sizes are in two inch increments and your waist may not be on our sizing guide, choose the next size up.  For example, if your waist measures 30-1/2 choose a size 32. Inseam measurement is to two inches below the knee for knickers, but full length for long pants.

UNITARDS

Measurement will be the same as the jacket instructions plus the knicker instructions.

PLASTRONS and UNDERARM PROTECTORS

When measuring for your plastron/underarm protector, make certain to get an accurate measurement of your chest.  MEN- measure as high on the chest as possible with your arms down. WOMEN- measure your chest at the largest place. Choose the size plastron/underarm protector that is your chest measurement.  Since our sizes are in two inch increments and your chest may not be on our sizing guide, choose the next size up. For example, if your chest measures 38-1/2 choose a size 40.

GLOVES

When measuring the hand we will need the circumference of the four knuckles where the fingers connect to the palm. hold your hand out like you are going to shake hands with a politician, so your thumb is up and out of the way, it is not involved in the measurement. please be as accurate as possible, as a difference of a half inch can change your glove size.

MASKS

When measuring the head we will need the circumference of the face area. Measure the face starting under the chin half way between the chin and throat. Continue up the side of the face just in front of the ear. Continue up and over the forehead (note to guys: this is just above where your hair line used to be) down the other side ending where you started under the chin. Remember that all heads are shaped differently and may measure one size when they are actually another. We find that children under 8 wear extra small masks, children from 8 to 10 wear small, teen through adult women almost always wear medium and adult men large unless they are over 6ft. 2in. in which case go extra large.
