How to Measure a Throw Pillow

Video Tutorial

This video shows step-by-step instructions on how to measure for a throw pillow.

Measurements Needed:

  • Height
  • Width

Throw pillows are a great way to pull together the design of any indoor or outdoor living space. Follow these steps to ensure your throw pillow is made to the correct specifications.

Measuring Tips

  1. Use a firm (carpenter's) tape measure, rather than a flexible (tailor's) measuring tape for the most accurate results.
  2. DO NOT measure the pillow diagonally. DO NOT measure the pillow across its center.
  3. Keep in mind that when ordering, you will need to round up or round down to the nearest 1/2 inch.
  4. You may find it helpful to have someone else hold the pillow while you take measurements.
  5. Pillow dimensions are based on measuring along the edge of the pillow, not the width of the stuffed pillow. Once filled with poly fiber, the height and width will be slightly less than the measurements ordered. For example, a 12" x 12" pillow will have perceived finished dimensions of 11" x 11" when stuffed.
