All the actual measurements given on the site as "armpit to armpit x 2" refer to the measurements of the garment and not the size it will fit.
The best way of checking if an item will fit is to measure a similar garment you have which fits well and compare the measurements.
When we give the "Armpit to armpit x 2" on an item it is measured directly at the top of the side seams (armpit to armpit) laid flat, then the measurement is doubled, giving the circumference.
If we state that an item is labelled "to fit xx" / XXcm" please check this against your own measurements.

How to return your order:
A great softshell that I use for going up Munros in all kinds of weather. Only twice have I had to swap it for my Gortex and that was in incredibly wet weather that only Scotland can get! More breatheable than you would expect something this waterproof to be and the cobra hood, which can be adjusted quite a bit, is top-notch. Being Helikon the sizing errs more towards the American-style so the arms are, somewhat bafflingly, quite billowy and I say that despite being perfect length the jacket as a whole isn't as snug as some would prefer. This however does allow several base-layers under it while still offering breathability so personal preference will dictate whether you see that as a pro or a con. Helikon get a bad rep for loose stitching, I have had no such issues even after machine washing multiple times and putting it through quite a bit of work. I'd buy this again.
