Human and Pet Sweater Sizing

Human Sweaters

Human sweaters are unisex, but the sizing runs closer to women’s sizing. The dimensions are below. Please review the sizing carefully.  If you're unsure, size up.

Small: chest width 94 cm / 37 in, body length  66 cm / 26 in, shoulder width 40 cm / 15.7 in, sleeve length: 61 cm / 24 in (fits like a women’s small)

Medium: chest width 98 cm / 38.5 in, body length  68 cm / 27 in, shoulder width 41 cm / 16 in, sleeve length: 62 cm / 24.5 in (fits like a women’s medium)

Large: chest width 102 cm / 40 in, body length  69 cm / 27 in, shoulder width 42 cm / 16.5 in, sleeve length: 63 cm / 24.8 in (fits like a women’s large, men’s small)

XL: chest width 106 cm / 41.5 in, body length  70 cm / 27.5 in, shoulder width 44 cm / 17.3 in, sleeve length: 64 cm / 25 in (fits like a women’s XL, men’s medium)

Pet Sweaters

Pet sweaters are available in sizes small to 3XL. The most important measurement is around the chest. The sweaters do have a bit of stretch due to the knitting on the chest side. I would estimate there is 3-6 inches stretch on the small, medium, large and xl), and probably 7-12 inches stretch on the 2xl to 3xl ). If you're close on sizing, consider the size down instead of sizing up as the dog sweaters look better fitted than loose. The tradeoff will be in the length.

Please note that especially in the larger sizes, the sweaters are a bit loose around the neck.

How to Measure Your Pet

Supplies needed: 

  • Pet
  • Flexible tape measure or string (that you can measure with a ruler or tape measure after taking the measurements)

Step 1: Find dog or cat (or other pet).

Step 2: Ensure pet is standing up before taking the measurements.

Step 3: Use your measuring tape or string to measure around the dog or cat's chest at the widest part (usually behind the front legs). The chest measurement is the most important measurement. 

Step 4: Measure around the neck where your pet's collar would usually sit. Note that especially in the larger sizes, the neck measurement is pretty large. Perfect if have a thicc pet, but it may fit loosely on other pets. 

Step 5: Tell your dog or cat they are a good boy or girl, give them some treats, and let them free as you check out the size chart.

Step 6: Line up the pet's measurements against the size chart. The chest measurement is the most important. The sweaters do have a bit of stretch, so if you're close on sizing but the chest measurement is below the sweater measurement, you should consider sizing down instead of sizing up.
