Helpful hints:

  • Use a fabric tape measure.
  • Have a friend help, you need to be standing up straight with arms by your side in a relaxed position for accurate measurements.
  • Measure with the shoes and undergarments that you plan on wearing with the dress, if possible.
  • Try to keep the measuring tape as level/straight as possible. Keep the tape taut, but still comfortable.
  • Include bra cup size with measurements.
