How to take measurements for legs’ armor

How to take measurements for legs’ armor 2019-12-06

When taking measurements for any item, please be very careful. As good fit of item depends on the correctness and accuracy of taken parameters.

Use only soft measuring tape.

Please take measurements over padded chausses, on which you plan to wear plate or brigandine leg protection, or chainmail stockings.

For making of medieval armor, we need the following parameters of your leg:

1. Length of outer side of thigh

  • hold one end of tape at the coxofemoral joint;
  • stretch tape to the knee joint;
  • note, that tape should not be straight, but must repeat a slight curve of your thigh;

2. Length of knee

  • hold one end of tape at the upper part of knee-cap;
  • stretch tape to the bottom of knee-cap;
  • note, that tape should not be straight, but must repeat a slight curve of your knee
