How To Measure
Measurements of your dress are taken to determine the size that provide the closest fit. We always recommend you visiting our shop having a professional take all of your measurements. For the most accurate measurements, don’t measure wearing your clothes on. Your dress size measurements should be taken while wearing undergarments similar to the ones you will wear with your wedding dress on the occasion. The measuring tape shouldn’t be pulled too tight or have too much loose, and should always be parallel to the floor.
PROPER WAY TO TAKE MEASUREMENT
- Please use a fabric tape only for measurement.
- Always keep the tape measure taut, but don’t stretch it tight or put it too loose.
- Wear the heels that you plan to wear on your wedding day.
- Wear similar undergarments that you will wear on your wedding day.
- Keep your feet six inches apart and start taking measurements.
We recommend you to have someone with knowledge of measuring to help you take your measurements. This can be a professional seamstress/tailor or friend.
These are the measurements we need, along with instructions about how to take each measurement.
- Bust: This is not your bra size. But, this is a measurement of the fullest part of your bust. While keeping your arms relaxed and at your sides, run the tape across the widest part of your back and fullest part of your bust.
- Waist: This is your natural waistline, or the smallest part of your waist. It is usually found an inch or two above your belly button. Don’t suck in your waist, You want to be able to breathe on your wedding day.
- Hips: This is a measurement of the fullest part of your hips. Run the tape across the hipbone to get it.
- Hollow to hem: For this measurement in particular,wear the heels you plan to wear on the wedding day. Place the tape at the hollow base of your neck and measure down to where you want the hem to end.
- Sleeve: Place the tape in your armpit. Measure your straight arm and stop at your wrist to get it.
