Measuring  –  measuring is the best way to get a good fit. If you can,  have someone help you. The measuring tape should be held snug, tight and level around your bust, natural waist, and hips while you stand tall looking straight ahead.

You should have a friend, family member or, for the best results, a professional seamstress or tailor to take your measurements.

Taking your own measurements will almost always result in inaccuracies.  
It's best to be measured wearing the exact undergarments, slip, and shoes you'll be wearing.
Use ONLY a standard cloth measuring tape. Do not pull the tape tightly; it should be just tight enough to stay in place.                             

Taking the Bust Measurements           
          1. Stand straight with your heels together and your arms down at your side. 

          2. Position the measuring tape so that it covers the widest part of your back and the fullest part of your bust.  
 Taking the Waist Measurements     
          1. Standing straight, measure around the smallest part of your waist, about 1-2 inches above your belly button.

          2. Stand straight and keep your heels together.

          3. Place the measuring tape around your natural waist.

Taking the bust measurement    
          1. Stand straight with your heels together and your arms down at your side.

          2. Position the measuring tape around the widest part of your hips.


Chose the size that represents the largest measurement .
Once you have taken your measurements, refer to the designer’s size chart that applies to your garment.

The designers’ size charts show the approximate measurements they use to make each size.

Compare your measurements to the size chart to determine the correct size.              
If you cannot match your exact measurements to all three measurements indicated on the designer’s size chart we suggest ordering according to the largest measurement, have it tailored for a perfect fit. Remember, it is easier for the seamstress to alter your dress to your true measurement than getting into a dress too small and starting your special occassion a disaster!
