How To Measure

The below is just a guide. We recommend that whenever possible you get a qualified seamstress to measure your dress size. Always get someone else to make the measurements for you: measuring yourself will give inaccurate numbers and could lead to disappointment. Measure with undergarments similar to those you will wear with your dress, do not measure over other clothing.


Bust: Measure around the fullest part of the bust

Waist: This is the smallest part of your waist. Typically it's an inch or so above your belly button.

Hip: around hips at fullest point, taking note of how far down from the waist that you are measuring.

Hollow to Floor(With shoes): Measure from the place between the collarbones and pull tape straight down to floor, stand straight with feet together, Measure with shoes on.

Shoulder to Shoulder: Only needed for dress with sleeves. This is the width of your shoulder.

Nipple to Nipple: This is the distance between your two nipples.

Shoulder to bust: Measure from the top of your shoulder to the nipple.

Shoulder to waist: Measuring from the same point on your shoulder, go down over the top of your nipple to the waist.

Armhole: This measurement show the size of sleeve hole, It's entirely subjective and you can make it as deep or as tight as you are comfortable with.

Waist to Hem: Measure from your Natural Waist to where you want the hem to be.

Arm Length: Shoulder point to wrist,arm straight.

Bicep: Around arm at fullest part of upper arm.

Neck: Around neck loosely. You will not need this one unless your garment has a high neck and or collar.

Upper bust: Measure above your breasts in the same manner as you measured across them.
