How to measure for leather race suit?

Motorcycle racing is a fast sport. Riders need to go to extreme limits to win the races. That races can be risky enough and even sometimes lethal if performed unprepared. A leather race suit with a complete racing gear is a must wear to reduce the risk of the injury to the lowest point.

You will need to take all the measurements correctly. Here’s how you’ll have to do it:

B: Neck: Take a skin-tight measurement around your neck just below Adam’s apple.

C: Sleeve: Keep your arm relaxed with elbow slightly bent, measure from the point of shoulder, and down outside of arm past elbow to wrist.

D: Chest: Take this measurement just below your breasts under arms firmly to the body.

E: Breasts (for women): Measure at the fullest part of your chest (across your nipples) under the arms, tightly around the body.

F: Waist: Take this measurement around your body at the natural waist level.

G: Hips: Measure around your hips and buttocks at their widest point, make sure the tape is not restrictive.

H: Inseam: Measure from the lowest part of the crotch, down to the ankle bone keeping the measuring tape tight.
