Pillow covers are measured from seam to seam for the most accurate measurement. To measure, remove the pillow cover from insert / filler, turn the cover inside out, lay the cover on a flat surface and measure from the inside seam to seam. If the measurement is taken from the front of the pillow cover side to side, the sizing will be smaller than the actual pillow cover size.

1. Remove the pillow cover from the insert / filler
2. Turn the cover inside out and lay on a flat surface
3. Measure from inside seam to inside seam (length + width) with flexible tape measure for a pillow cover size
