Sizing: Graded Specifications FAQ

Your graded specs give us the ability to understand your product sizing strategies.  Below are a few frequently asked questions that can help you locate the information required.

Where can I find the graded specification sizing information?

Graded specification sheets are most often located within each individual product’s technical package (tech pack). Along with the product’s graded specification sheet, tech packs often include technical sketches, construction details, bill of materials (BOM), trim and label information, and packaging information.


If your brand does not utilize tech packs, graded specification sheets can oftentimes be provided by the manufacturer upon request.

Do I need to send a graded spec sheet for each product?

Yes. Having a graded specification sheet for each of your products enables us to make product specific size and fit recommendations rather than assume all garments in each product category fit the exact same way.

Graded Specification Sheets help us understand the following:

  • The technical design of each product
  • How the product changes in size between size labels
  • How the product relates to other items in the same product category

How can I send this information to the customer support team?

Graded Specification Sheets can be submitted directly to our customer success team through this form

What format is okay?

We accept graded specifications sheets in Word, Excel or PDF format. Please see the minimum required information that must be included on each of your Graded Specification Sheets below per product category.

Tops:

  • Chest/Bust Garment Measurement (most often: Chest 1” Below Armhole)

Bottoms:

  • Waist Garment Measurement (most often: Relaxed Top of Waistband)
  • Hip Garment Measurement (measurement varies depending on product)

Full Body:

  • Chest/Bust Garment Measurement (most often: Chest 1” Below Armhole)
  • Waist Garment Measurement (most often: Relaxed Top of Waistband)
  • Hip Garment Measurement (measurement varies depending on product)

If we plan to discontinue an item do you still need that sizing information?

If the garment is currently being sold on your website, we will need a graded specification sheet regardless of whether or not it will be discontinued. 

Additionally, in the event that you add new garments to your website, please be sure to provide us with the graded specification sheets at least one full week prior to the release of the product.

What if I can’t find this information and can’t provide the tech pack?

If you do not have graded specification sheets or tech packs on hand, they can oftentimes be provided by the manufacturer upon request. Manufacturers may provide this information in different formats depending on the product. Please see examples of the different formats below.

If you are still unable to locate graded specification sheets or tech packs for your products, please contact our customer success team by emailing help@getwair.com to discuss our alternative approaches to sizing.

After providing the information what is the time frame I can expect for Fit Advisor to be live? 

Once all sizing information is submitted and technical integration of the widget is complete, you can expect to receive the green light from our customer success team to launch Fit Advisor on your website in as quickly as 5 business days.
