If this is your first time purchasing a kilt online, please read this advice carefully and follow all of the procedures outlined below to prevent any problems in kilt measuring.

Before making an order, it is critical to measure your kilt. It is simpler to measure the kilt size before purchasing rather than purchasing the incorrect size and returning the garment, which may be expensive and time-consuming. Remember that your pants/trousers size does not correspond to your kilt size. So, in this section, we’ll teach you how to correctly measure your kilt.

There are three critical measures that must be taken to prevent measuring mistakes. Here they are:

  • Determine Your Hip Size
  • Take your waist measurement.
  • Calculate the length of the kilt drop.

Determine Your Hip Size

The first thing you should do is measure your hip size. You may wonder why I measure my hip size. That’s because we need to know if you have typical hip size or not when we make your kilt. It’s because if you wear your kilt and your hips don’t fit, it’ll be unpleasant.

Determine Your Waist Size

The second step is to determine your waist size. Wrap a size tape around your waist or anywhere you want to secure the kilt. The kilt is often fastened at the belly button, however this is entirely up to you. Make careful to measure it with regular breathing and take notes.

People with huge bellies may choose to wear the kilt around the naval, as it gives them a more attractive image.

Determine the length of the kilt drop.

This is the third and last phase, which involves measuring the kilt drop length. The kilt drop length specifies how long your kilt should be while standing upright. A proper kilt should reach your kneecap, however this is not required; it is entirely up to you. Begin measuring from your waist or where you attach your kilt to the desired length of the kilt.

A kilt’s usual drop length is roughly 24 inches for men and 20 inches for women.
