How To Measure ?

 

It is better to have your measurements taken by a professional seamstress. If you cannot get a professional one to take the measurements, please have someone to do it for you. To ensure proper fit, we have provided the following measuring guideline for your reference. Measurements should be taken in the undergarment you plan to wear with your gown.

  

Bust Measurement

Measure the bust line at the fullest part of your chest. Stand naturally with your heels together. Let your arms rest by the side of your body. Position the tape so it covers the widest part of the back and the fullest part of your chest. Keep a thumb in the inside of the tape.

 

Waist Measurement

Place your hands at your natural waistline. This is where the tape should be positioned. Stand with your stomach at its natural position. Leave a little room by keeping a thumb on the inside of the tape. Do not pull the tape tight.

 

Hip Measurement

Stand naturally with your heels together in a relaxed posture. Position the tape around the fullest part of your hip. Leave a little room by keeping a thumb on the inside of the tape. Do not pull the tape tight.

 

Hollow to Hem Measurement

The hollow to hem measurement is taken from the center of your collarbone to the hem. When taking this measurement, you will need to account for the fullness of an A line or full skirt gown by moving the tape forward away from the body, at the hem. The tape should be pulled out according to the fullness of the skirt. You will need to take the measurement with the exact heel height you will be wearing.
