Size Guide

Measurements

Please read through our entire size guide below before making any purchase. If there is any sizing question, you can contact our Live chat support or post a question in the product page.Fashionapolis: Fashion For Fashionista - Size Measurement

Tips for choosing the clothes:

1) Top (Shirt, Blouse, Suits, Coat, Sweater) - Measure Chest and Shoulder.

2) Pants, Shorts, Skirts - measure Hip and Waist. If it is a jeans, it may be good to check the front rise, back rise, inseam, thigh circumference and calf circumference. You can take it that inseam of the jeans is approximate the full length of the jeans minus the front rise

3) For dress and jumpsuit, measure bust (loose fit or tight fit), shoulder, waist and sleeve length (if applicable). Also, do check that the length of the dress (especially long maxi dress) is suitable for your height

4) Please use the tag size information given by us as a guide. There are three methods that you can use to pick your best size: the 1) height tag, 2) bust / waist measurements and 3) the size conversion.

Some Notes:

For best view in mobile, please rotate to landscape view to view the Size Table. Please understand due to mobile display size limits, some size table alignment may be a bit off as there is a limit to how many columns we can put. If the table spacing allows, we will try to show the measurements in inch, but either round up/down to nearest digit or nearest one decimal place. 

To use the conversion chart, locate the size under US column in the size table in the product page. Then look for the corresponding US Size in the size conversion tab.

If no US size is recommended for the appropriate tag size, it means it doesn't follow the standard sizing conversion. Usually, these clothing are free size, loose fit type or stretchable type and can fit a range of sizes.

For pants and shorts, do note that stretchable material and elastic waist can mean different things. Stretchable materials do not mean your pants waist size is adjustable unless it says the waist is adjustable or elastic. Casual or Sports Pants like your sweatpants and drawstring pants etc usually come with adjustable waist. Pants that are designed with a fixed waist are usually your formal dress pants (business pants), jeans and your cargo pants. For pants with fixed waist, we recommend you to pick a inch size bigger, if you want to play safe. The reason is if the pants is a bit loose, you can always wear a belt.

If we indicate season in the product details, it means it is designed for cold seasons (spring, autumn, winter). If season is not indicated in the product details, it means it is not fixed to any particular season, subjected to the climate and temperature in context, whether it is indoor, outdoor or in aircon places. If we did not indicate the thickness, that means the thickness is standard. If the fabric is thicker or thinner than standard thickness, we will indicate in the product specification. You have to make your own judgement whether the fabric fits the climate condition that you are in. 

Size Conversion

A) Men's Clothing - Top (Suits, Coat, Sweater etc)

A tag size of 165/84A means the clothes is designed for a person of height of 165 cm +/- with a bust around 84 cm. A chest size of 84 cm corresponds to 32-33 inch (UK size) and half of this number corresponds to EU (FR, GE, IT etc) and RU size, which is size 42 in this case. Similarly, 170/88A means the clothes is designed for a person of height 170 cm +/- with a bust around 88 cm. In this case, it corresponds to around 34-35 inch (UK size) and size 44 for EU and RU.

What constitutes a regular body build? Picking the right height tag.

The correct way is to look at your BMI. A BMI between 18.5 to 24.9 is considered to be in the healthy zone. Below 18.5, you are underweight. Above 25, you are overweight while above 30, the body build is classified to be obese.

Fashionapolis - BMI

For example, a person of height 170 cm and BMI in the blue healthy zone should pick the 170 cm height tag, the tag that is closest to his or her actual height. This size system can is fairly accurate for those with BMI in the blue healthy zone, especially for tops (shirt, jacket, dress etc). For bottoms (pants, shorts and jeans), waist measurement is still the most accurate measurement. If your BMI is near the borderline zone or outside the blue normal healthy zone, the accuracy can get a bit tricky and you should use your bust / waist as a second indicator confirmation to find your best size. If a person is underweight (tall but skinny type with BMI under 18.5), then pick one size lower (sometimes two size lower, if severely underweight), which will be the 165 tag. If a person is overweight with BMI between 25 to 30, then pick one tag size bigger, which is the 175 tag. If a person is obese with BMI between 30 to 40, then pick two tag size bigger, which is the 180 tag. This height tag system works accurately well, regardless of gender (male / female) or race (Asian /Caucasian). Nevertheless, stay healthy, exercise more and try maintain a healthy BMI in the blue zone. The table below gives a summary.

Actual Height 155 160 165 170 175 180 185
Severely Underweight - - 155 160 165 170 175
Underweight 150 155 160 165 170 175 180
Normal 155 160 165 170 175 180 185
Overweight 160 165 170 175 180 185 190
Obese 165 170 175 180 185 190 195 


You can expect the sizing tag to fit consistently, once you have identified which tag fits you most comfortably. For example, you have tried out a Playboy Physical T Shirt with a 165/84A tag and the T shirt fits you comfortably. Then similarly, a Playboy Physical Hoodie or Jacket with the same 165/84A tag should also fit you comfortably as well. This is true, especially if the clothing is under the same brand.

As you can see from the picture below, the sizes conform to international clothing measurments.
