Ease is the amount of "space" in a garment. It allows you to move and be comfortable. These questions tell us important information, allowing us to fit the garment to your preferences.
Everyone wears his or her clothes differently. Some prefer garments to be snug, such as jeans. Others prefer them very full and baggy (such as jeans?!). Ease is the difference between your actual body measurements and the finished dimensions of your garment.
Keep in Mind: If you order a garment too loose and decide you want it tighter, we can take it in. But, if you order it tight and want it looser, we may not be able to enlarge it.
