Body Armor FAQ

Before we begin, ensure you have your actual padded under-armor kit ready: gambeson, chausses, and c-belt. Using anything else like modern jackets, sweatpants, or layered sweaters won’t provide the accurate measurements needed for fitting your brigantine. If you’re planning to order both your padded kit and brigantine from our shop simultaneously, sending your bare body measurements is acceptable. However, please inform us of this so we can properly adjust the sizing based on your true dimensions.

Additional Tips:

  • When taking measurements, stand relaxed with good posture.
  • Make sure the measuring tape is snug but not tight.
  • If you’re unsure about any measurements, it’s always best to err on the side of being slightly larger.
  • Consider having someone else take your measurements for greater accuracy.

This table should give you a good starting point for taking all the necessary measurements for your medieval body armor. Remember, precise measurements are crucial for a comfortable and well-fitting suit of armor.

Required measurements:

A. Body Weight: Stand on a scale without shoes or other heavy clothing.

B. Full Body Height: Stand straight, barefoot, with your back against a wall. Have someone measure from the top of your head to the floor.

D. Neck Circumference: Measure around the base of the neck, just above the collarbone.

E. Shoulder Width (Back): Measure from the seam of one shoulder pad to the seam of the other, across the back.

R. Shoulder Width (Front): Measure from the seam of one shoulder pad to the seam of the other, across the chest.

O. Chest Width (Arms Together): Measure the front of the chest with arms holding each other, from armpit to armpit.

F. Maximum Chest Circumference: Measure around the chest at its fullest point, usually while breathing in.

G. Waist Circumference: Measure around the narrowest part of your waist, above the hips.

H. Maximum Hip Circumference: Measure around the widest part of your hips, usually at the level of your buttocks.

U. Neckline to Waistline: Measure from the lowest point of the neckline just under the neck to the waistline, usually above the belly button.

X. Neckline to Groin Line: Measure from the lowest point of the neckline just under the neck to the groin line, where you want the armor to end. This helps ensure the pelvis is covered.
