how to properly find your jersey size

People like to wear custom jerseys because they’re comfy and versatile. You can dress a tee up for date night or wear it casually while running errands. Ultimately, your favorite custom jersey reflects your personality, interests, experiences, and sense of style.

Your jersey is also a moving billboard for all you hold near and dear. Whether it features your favorite number, is printed with a brand logo, or has a funny quote across the front, it represents something that you love. There’s a reason why a custom jersey sits right over our hearts!

However, people come in all kinds of shapes, and every manufacturer has different guidelines when it comes to their clothing sizes. If you don’t know how you like to wear your jersey, the next step is to figure out what size will fit you the way that you want.

How to measure for Jersey Sizing

Measure around the fullest part of your chest under the arms for your total chest circumference.

The best way to measure jersey chest size is by laying it out flat on a surface and measuring it from armpit to armpit on one side. Take baseball uniforms as an example, if the armpit to armpit is around 25 inches on one side, then to circumference will be 50 inches, which is L size. You can similarly get other sizes.

Another option is to take the measuring tape and wrap it around your chest, just under your armpits.

If you are worried about the length, you can also measure from the top of your shoulder, down to your waist area to give you an idea of where the typical jerseys will lay on your waist or leg area. Once you have the measurements you can look at a size chart.

Remember, if you want a tight fit, then go with the size jersey that is closest to your measurements. If you want your jersey to be baggy, then go to the next size up.

With that in mind, don’t take this recommendation as the end all, be all. For any size problems, please feel free to contact us.

Pro Tips for choosing the correct Jersey size:

  • If you plan to wear shirts or other layers under your football jersey, you may want to order the next size up to ensure a comfortable fit.
  • If your measurement is between two sizes, you can either order the smaller size for a tighter fit or the next size up for a looser fit.

How do women's Jerseys fit?

Women's jerseys have a slender tapered cut, not boxy like the men's jerseys. Order one size up if you like your jersey to fit looser.

How Should My Jersey Fit?

You’re officially an expert on shirt sizes, styles, and fabrics, so it’s time to find your perfect fit! Be on the hunt for the following when shopping for custom jerseys:


The jersey shouldn’t be too tight. You want to be able to easily move your arms, while not feeling like the collar area is choking your neck. Find a tee that’s breathable and comfy to wear.

Not Too Loose

A loose jersey is unflattering as it makes it look like you weigh more than you do. The perfect one will slightly hang off your torso, but not so much that it looks like you’re wearing a garbage bag!

Falls Below Your Hips

Avoid that weird bump at the bottom of your jersey! Make sure it falls around the middle of the fly area of your pants. If it’s a little long, you can always tuck it in instead.

Hides Your Belly

Unless you’re wearing a crop top, the jersey should be long enough to hide your stomach. Test the length by raising your arms above your head to see how far it rides up.

Works With Your Height

Big and tall jerseys are right for you if you’re over 6 feet tall. If you’re petite, on the other hand, you may need to buy a youth size.

Flattering to Your Shape

Some jerseys are built like boxes and end up hiding your best features. Choose a cut that works with your body type.

Do Fansidea Jerseys run big or small?

In general, our Men Jerseys will fit properly, Women Jerseys run small, but that depends on the jersey type. We recommend buying the next size-up jersey if you plan on wearing clothes underneath (hoodies, t-shirts, etc.).
