Taking Your Own Measurements
Make sure you wear fitted clothing, undergarments or shapewear and shoes you plan on wearing with the garment. If you get a custom outfit made and need to take more than just a few measurements, we recommend tying an elastic around the smallest part of your waist to ensure consistent measurements.How To Take Measurements Video Guide
We determine your size based on three key measurements:
Measure around the fullest part of your bust, parallel to the floor. Make sure to relax your arms and have the tape lay flat and level.
Measure around the smallest part of your waist, also called the natural waist. You can make this more prominent by tying elastic or a band around this part.
Measure around the widest part of your hips, parallel to the floor. Use a mirror to ensure that the measuring tape is flat and level. Take the tape and slide it downwards to find the widest area of your hips, and record this measurement as your ‘full hip’. This is usually the main measurement you’ll need for pants or other bottoms.
Taking your measurements is extremely important because it dictates how well a garment will fit you. Also, remember to take fresh measurements because our bodies are always changing. Use our video guide to take your own measurements and to ensure that they are accurate!
