Wizard Wear Size Charts

"How do I compare misses sizes to a junior sizes? I really don't know which I should order or which size would be a better fit."

Get out your measuring tape because there is a difference between each size range. The questions here is how does a Misses size compare to a Junior size.

In an earlier post, we covered the differences between the two size ranges but here are the measurements to determine specifically which Junior size comes closest to an "8" in the Misses size range.

There is one other factor which can throw off all "sizing" and measurements - how generous the manufacturer is in their idea of sizing. The easiest way to put it is this...when it comes to comparing sizes, the more expensive the brand, the more true to size and the more generous the wearing ease.

Have you ever had the opportunity to try on various sweaters of the same size but from different labels and manufacturers? Try it sometimes - you will be amazed.

Let's start by comparing Misses sizes to Junior sizes.

The difference is not just in the finished measurements. You can also tell the difference in the construction and finishing method. The high end garments will be full fashioned (individual garment pieces are made separately then assembled) rather than completed using the cut and sew method.

The big ticket items also provide you with more wearing ease above and beyond the design ease.

Please note that the measurements given below are your actual measurements not the finished measurements of the garment itself.

Also, the style of a garment will affect how it fits - outerwear [jackets, vests, coats and cardigans] has varying amounts of added wearing ease - they are designed to be layered over other garments.

Certain sweater styles have "negative" wearing ease...in other words they are literally smaller than your actual body measurements.

Here are the wizard wear size charts for Hobbie's Wizard School uniform sweaters, vests and cardigans!

Hobbie's wizard wear is available in garment industry "standard" sizes of X-Small, Small, Medium, Large and X-Large for Misses, Men, Juniors and Children.

If you do not see the size you need, simply contact us with details. You can also check out how we approach measurement and fit in knits.

We've converted all measurements for these wizard wear size charts into centimeters and into the corresponding international sizes.

Our collection of Wizard Wear has always been available in custom sizes. All styles in sweaters, vests or cardigans can be ordered with custom specs.

We introduced standard sizing for "costuming" purposes and anyone who is not particularly interested in a totally customized fit.

Here are answers to potential questions which may come up with the introduction of standard sizes:

  • How do "standard sizes" differ from the individually sized and/or customized sweater, vest or cardigan?
  • Standard sizes are knit to set, standardized measurements which usually cover 2 sizes - a Ladies Medium, for example, will fit someone wearing either a size 8 or 10. On the other hand, measurements for a size 8 are different than those for a size 10. At Hobbie's House, you not only have the option of ordering a specific size but you can also customize it for a perfect fit.
  • What size should I order?
  • What is your bust/chest measurement? As an example, Ladies - let's say that your bust measurement is 36 to 37.5"...order the Ladies Medium; Men - if your chest measurement is 42"...order the Men's 42 which is a Large. Don't worry about the wearing ease...we automatically add the appropriate/correct amount for each size.
  • Are these sweaters of the same quality as the custom sized version?
  • Definitely! With standard sizing, the intent is not to compromise on quality. Offering standard sizing allows us to draft patterns which can be used for more than one customer. We use the same quality materials and apply the same quality of workmanship whether you order a standard size or the customized version.
  • I am tall - will your sweaters fit me as well?
  • Be sure to let us know if you are tall or short. We will make the necessary adjustments.
  • Height for regular Juniors: 5'3 1/2" to 5'7 1/2";
    Jr.Tall: 5'8" to 5'11".
  • Height for Petites: 4'11" to 5'3"
  • Height for Misses: 5'3" to 5'7"; Talls: 5'8" to 5'11"
  • Height for Men: 5'10"; Talls: 6' and above.
    • Thank you for taking the time to review garment industry standard size charts.

      Please note that these are standard measurements...which do not necessarily apply to all styles of Hobbie's "wizard wear".

      The RENT© sweater is knit to reproduce a specific look and style and does not have the same amount of wearing ease as a regular School Uniform sweater. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding sizing and measurements.
