Measuring for a kilt is an important step in making sure that the kilt fits properly and is comfortable to wear. Here are the basic steps to measure for a kilt:

  1. Waist: Measure around the narrowest part of your waist, typically just above the navel. This measurement is the most important one for determining the correct size of your kilt.

  2. Hips: Measure around the widest part of your hips, typically around the level of your hipbones. This measurement is important for making sure that the kilt will fit comfortably around your hips.

  3. Kilt Length: Measure from your waist (at the narrowest point) to the top of your knee. This measurement will determine the length of the kilt.

  4. Seat: Measure around the fullest part of your seat. This measurement is used to determine the correct drop of the kilt.

  5. Outseam: Measure from the top of the waistband to the bottom of the kilt.

It is recommended to take the measurement in inches. Once you have your measurements, you can use them to determine the correct size of kilt to order. Most kilts are worn on the natural waistline and should fall at mid-knee, it is also important to consider your height, body shape and personal preference.

It is also important to note that while taking the measurements, you should be wearing the clothes that you plan to wear with the kilt and also please note that the kilt will be worn with a kilt belt and kilt hose which will add to the overall bulk of the kilt.
