I see where the xs clothes on ebay has a girth of 8"? How do you measure this is it from leg to leg in the chest or is it like measuring your on chest with a measuring tape?

To measure her girth I use a piece of string and wrap it around the biggest part of Lily's chest, just behind her front legs. Then I measure from the base of the neck to the base of the tail for her length. Finally, I measure around her neck (I always add an inch or so to allow for her ears). I hope that helps. :)
