Points on How to Measure Your Body

  • Measuring yourself is difficult, and, in turn, will be inconsistent. Having someone else measure your body is recommended.
  • When the order is for a group, having one person do everyone's measurements helps to reduce inconsistencies.
  • Please measure with back straight, relaxed shoulders, relaxed stomach, and a natural posture.
  • Please measure yourself with the same undergarment you would use when wearing the dress. Sizing will differ with what undergarment you are wearing.
  • Please measure wearing the footwear you intend to wear the dress with. If you will be barefoot when wearing the dress please measure your body while barefoot.

How to Measure

1 Bust

Measuring along the fullest part of your chest, wrapping around in a straight horizontal line.

*Please note the measuring tape tends to slack and lower near the shoulder blade.

2 Waist

Measure along the smallest part of your waist, wrapping around in a straight horizontal line.

*Please measure your waist without tensing up or tucking in your stomach, as doing so may result in lack of room to move comfortably.

3 Hip

Measure along the largest part of your hip, wrapping around in a straight horizontal line.

*Please measure your hip 6 – 7 in. below your waist.

4 Dress Full Length

Measure starting from the back of the base of your neck, vertically straight down to the floor.

*Please do not measure along your body, and pull the measuring tape straight from the back of the base of your neck down to the floor.
