We wish to emphasize that these size measurements are approximate, and are to be used as an accurate guideline only for a “cycle jersey fit”, i.e. on the skin but not tight and certainly not loose. Recreational cyclists, preferring a more generous jersey fit, please need to specify a jersey size, of at least one size, or possibly even, two sizes bigger, than these measurements depicted.
The “chest” measurements refer to a measurement taken immediately below the arm-pits, with the subject’s arms relaxed at his side, and the “hips” measurements relate to a measurement representing the widest aspect of the hips: a hypothetical “belt measurement” and not the waist measurement.
The “bust” measurements refer to a measurement taken at the widest aspect of the bust, with the subject’s arms relaxed at her side, and the “hips” measurement relates to a measurement representing the widest aspect of the hips/bottom, and not the waist measurement.
