What does NOA mean?

NOA means NO Allowance or Finished Sizes. Essentially, when measurements are submitted, they are deemed to have been taken directly from the body (unless otherwise specified) and so need additional allowances from 0.5 inches to 6 inches, for comfort of movement. Such allowances for comfort depend on the overall size of the wearer and the style of the garment chosen as well as the type of garment ordered.
Therefore when the acronym NOA is used, it is used to denote that a particular number is the Finished Measurement of the relevant dimension/area of the garment. A 42 NOA for the waist of the pants, means that the actual waist of the pants has been finished at 42 inches, and so on.
When you see an NOA size in your measurements portfolio, this indicates that the finished size of the relevant dimension is the indicated number. If you wish to denote that a certain part of the garment should be finished at XYZ inches, simply add the term NOA at the end of that number.
Alternatively you can use the lower portion of the measurements forms to indicate which of the measurements have been taken from a garment (and not from the body) so that the finished garment we construct also has the same finished size as the garment you had measured from when putting in the measurements in the form.
Alternatively, if all the measurements you wish to submit are taken from a garment that fits you well, simply use the Send Sizes to Copy forms linked from the Measurements Portfolio in your account.
