How To Measure When Buying A Cropped Jacket With A High Neck?

Measurement guidelines can vary from brand to brand, but generally speaking, if you’re wearing a bra, take your measurement under the armpits while standing up straight. If you’re not wearing a bra, then simply measure over your breasts. For an accurate size, here are the measurements you need to take:


Measure along the back of your neck. Measure from the center of your shoulder up to where you want the top hemline to fall on your body. Cropped tops are usually midriff lengths, but if you prefer yours longer or shorter then that’s totally up to you!


Bust sizes are the most important measurements when it comes to cropped jackets. To determine your size, measure around the fullest part of your chest. You should measure around your ribcage under the armpit.  The range of sizes for this measurement will vary based on the manufacturer and how form-fitting the garment is.


Measure the hemline from the center of your shoulder to the bottom hem. Inline hemline measurements are often longer than the standard hemline. Cropped jackets tend to be shorter and more practical.

Sleeve Length

Measure from the center of your shoulder to where you would like the top sleeve hemline.


Measuring the shoulder width is simple, just measure from one end of your shoulder to another.
