Size Chart-Uppers

Buffery® Men’s Upper Flex Uniforms™

Sizes are designed to fit the following male bodybuilder measurements. Men’s Uppers are sized using V-Core Fit sizing, based on chest and navel circumference measurements, and the difference between the two, called a "drop." We offer both a 10-inch (25.4 cm) drop (slim fit) and a 14-inch (35.5 cm) drop (super slim fit) for those with a more dramatic V-taper.

How to measure:

  • Standing relaxed, level the tape measure under the armpits at the widest lats and fullest part of your pecs, typically just above the nipples, for your chest size.
  • Find your navel measurement by standing relaxed (don't suck in or vacuum) and level the tape measure around your midsection at the navel, as shown below.
  • If fitting for a blazer or suit coat, take your measurements over a shirt, something you would wear normally with your suit.

Note: Fit to your chest size first. For a more relaxed fit, choose the 10-inch drop.
