How To Measure
 
Measuring Guide
 
 
General Measurement
 
Bust: To measure you bust, please dress yourself in only a good fitting bra and underwear, take the measuring tape around your back at bust level and over your nipples without pulling too tight or leaving too much slack. Please note, the bust measurement is not your bra size!
 
Waist: Find your natural waist. Stand up straight and relax your abdominal muscles. Wrap the measuring tape completely around your waist starting at the belly button.Make sure the tape is level around your waistline--not too loose, not too tight. Tips: Do not place the measuring tape over clothes, you'll get the most accurate results on bare skin.
 
Hips: Please take the loose tape measure and wrap it around your hip area. The tape measure should be secured at the fullest part of the hip area; this is almost always over the buttocks.
 
Hollow To Hem: Start the tape at the hollow at the base of your neck and measure down to where you want the hem. If your skirt will be full, be sure to measure out at an angle to allow for the fullness. Also, be sure youre wearing the same height heel you'll wear on your big day.
