How to choose the correct product category

When you click on the “Category” field, a drop-down list opens with all available category options. Look at the garment that you need to measure, and determine which of the listed categories to apply.

We strongly recommend you look through the entire list of categories.

In cases where you’re unable to find a particular category, please choose the one that is most appropriate.

For example: you need to measure specification garment that you refer to as “leggings.” There is no such category in the Assistant. Look for the most appropriate category from the list of options. In this case, the correct category would be, “Women’s trousers and shorts.”

Some important features of defining categories are described below.

Women’s trousers and shorts

Note that a variety of products relating to categories such as “Trousers and shorts,” as well as “skirts” are products with a bib and straps:




It is important not to confuse them with products from the category “Jumpsuits.”

Trousers and skirts with bib and straps are not jumpsuits in the AstraFit system!
