Lulu here from the Shopify Support team. Thanks for reaching out here, and I'll be more than happy to help you out.
A size guide is always a great idea as customers feel more satisfied and are more inclined to shop if they know the items are going to fit them. The one thing I would advise is not to have too many things to fill out as most customers won't do this and will abandon the checkout. Online shopping should be quick and easy for the best customer experience. There are two apps that have this function here:
Height & Weight: This app allows customers to enter their height and weight to a product page and clicks submit. The app calculates the most recommended size and shows a note about the recommended size.
Apparel Size Recommender: I love this app because there is no need to measure yourself, chances are customers don't know their measurements and are more than likely shopping on their commute to work or relaxing watching tv. Realistically they won't grab the measuring tape out so this app allows customers to answer four questions and it will get the correct size recommendations easy and fast.
If none of those apps suited, you would need to hire a Shopify Expert to help build it for you. You can actually post a job on the Shopify Experts Page and see what feedback and quotes you get. You can find where and how to do this here.
I hope this helps but please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you. Even if you just want our opinion about your business plan or site layout, even with marketing and growth aspects you're curious about, then be sure to reach out.

With our app Naiz Fit Chart: Recommend Size you can give size recommendations to your customers automatically and create smart size charts easily.
We saw many apps that allow you to insert body measurements and give sizes in return, which is perfectly fine, but the real problem is still there.
What is the real problem?
The problem is that most users either don't know their body measurements or don't have the time (or the measuring tape ) to give you the information you are asking for. Consequence? You are losing that sale.
We solved this by developing a technology which gives size recommendations with the information your users know: age, gender, height and weight.
The set up is super easy and we reduced the input required to the minimum. Happy to assist you if you need any help!
Give it a try and let me know how it works for you.
