How to Measure for Shalwar Kameez / Punjabi Suit?

Salwar Kameez Measurement Guide Form

Measurements should be taken over body suit or undergarments. To ensure a comfortable fit, when measuring, hold tape comfortably (not tight) around the body.

Chest Measurement

Stand with your heels together. Hold tape lightly and measure across fullest part of the chest, under arm and across the widest part of back.

Waist Measurement

Stand with your stomach in natural position; do not pull in your stomach. Measure firm but not tight around natural waistline.

Hip Measurement

Stand with your heels together. Measure around the widest part of the hip-line, at the top of the legs, around 7-9 inches below your natural waistline. Hold the tape lightly not tight.

Salwar Suit / Shalwar Khameez Size Guide.

Once you have taken measurements, how to select the Right Size Salwar Kameez? Some Kameez Styles are semi fitted while others are loose. It depends on personal style. Some like to wear it semi fitted others like it loose.

In general, our garments have 2-3 inches ease (looseness) to ensure comfortable fit. In other words, 2 -3 inches larger than body measurements. Individual garments may vary depending on the style and cut. If your body measurement falls between two sizes, select the larger size.

The table below provides a general guideline for Body (Chest) along with Garment measurements.

  1. First select the Khameez (top) size.
  2. The Salwaar (pants/trousers) that comes as a matching piece can be read of across the chart. Check this  against your hip measurements. As the Shalwar has a drawstring to adjust to different waist sizes, it is the Kamiz that has to be selected first. It is only in rare cases, you may have to select a different Kamis size for a better fitting Shalwar.
  3. Kameez and Salwar come as a pair only. That is you cannot select Khameez and Shalwar sizes independently.
