001: A Size Guide to The Simple Scrunch

Posted by Soap Box

When we look to the future of fashion, the need for better fit is a foregone conclusion. While we continue our mission to create circular modern clothes, helping you find your perfect fit is a large part of it. Shopping in today’s world is swift and sizing is not a priority but shopping vintage can become trickier, especially when it comes to non-stretch wovens. We accept and celebrate all shapes and sizes and kept this idea at our forefront as we redesigned these shirts, using what we found to make The Simple Scrunch as curve- and human-friendly as possible. 

While there are a lot of variables when it comes to fitting, we have simplified Reworked-Wear to three important measurements: chest size, shirt length, and sleeve length. It’s important to remember that measurements are just numbers so give yourself some grace during this process and follow the steps below to find your fit. 

Step 1: Measure Your Chest

Find a tape measure, preferably a soft tailoring tape measure and measure the widest part of your chest. For women, this would include the apex of your bust all the way around. For guys, this would typically align with your blazer sizing. 

In case you don’t have a tape measure handy, we’ve included a bra size chart for the ladies as an extra guide below. 

Step 2: Compare Your Chest Measurement to the Chart

Cross reference the size you typically wear plus the measurement you get with the measurements in the size chart. Remember, the chest width measurement is the garment measurement laid flat, so to find the circumference, you would simply double the number. For example, if you typically wear a size 2 and have a chest measurement of 34”, you would fit into the size XS-S. If you typically wear a size 10 and have a 38” chest, you would fit into the size M-L. It is important to remember, each size fits a range of measurements, and we are always available for questions and guidance at support@thebigfavorite.com.

Don’t worry guys, we didn’t forget about you! Similar to the above, you can take your typical blazer measurement and compare to the chest widths below. For example, if you’re 15 ½” neck size and a 38” chest, you could fit into the size S, but may want to go oversized a bit to the M-L to have some extra room. Remember the chest measurement ranges are the garment laid flat, so to get the circumference, you would double the number on each end. For example 18-26” is flat, and 36-52” in circumference.

Step 3: Recommendations 

Don’t worry if your measurements are not under the same size category! Our recommendation is to skew your size to your chest size unless you have specific style preferences. 

Step 4:  A Note about Sleeve Lengths

The sleeves on this style are what we call ‘bracelet’ length sleeves. That means they hit you where a bracelet or watch would, so they’re slightly cropped on this style. We've added ruching from the center front all the way down to the sleeve cuff to control the overall width of the shirt and create the shortened sleeve lengths.
