For upper body garments (the ones that are held on the shoulders) it is important to correctly determine whether the elastic is positioned at the waist, under the chest or below the waist.
Important! When the elastic is positioned under the chest or well below the waist, we do not take this into account.
An example of elastic positioned at the waist:
An example of elastic positioned well below the waist:
An example of elastic positioned under the chest:
Please note that for garments where the elastic is positioned at the waist, but not around the entire circumference (for example, only at the back of the garment), the correct answer for the question, “Elastic band on the waist?” will be “With an elastic band.”
Elastic inserted into the waistband
If the insert in the waist is stretchy or very stretchy, and the main fabric does not stretch or only slightly stretches, then it will be correct to indicate that the garment has an elastic waistband.
