How to Measure

Measure with undergarments similar to those you will wear with your dress. Do not measure over other clothing. Make sure the measuring tape is parallel to the floor and pulled evenly across the body with no slack. You may want to consider getting yourself professionally measured. Consult the Size Chart to determine which size you should purchase. You can also fill in your details to get a special dress tailor-made for you.

*Length from Hollow to Hem

Measure from the center of the collarbone (Hollow) to the dress hem. Note: The length is not measured starting from the garment neckline.

 

 
 

Bust

Not your bra size! Place the tape around your back and bring it across the fullest part of your bust. Your arms should be relaxed, down at your sides. You must wear a bra when taking this measurement.

Waist

This is the smallest part of your waist. Typically it is an inch or so above your belly button. Also known as the natural waistline.

 

Hip

This is the widest part of your hip, across the hipbone. Measurement is taken approximately 7-9 inches below the natural waistline. This measurement is not needed for full gowns.

Note:
Hollow to Hem: Do this with the shoes you will be wearing with your full length gown or dress for best results. A short length dress should measure to the hem of the dress.
Height: Measure in bare feet. Begin at the top of the head and pull tape straight down to the floor.
Always get measured by a professional. Bridal sizes are different than your normal clothes size.
 

Arm Girth

Relax your arm and measure around the largest part of the upper arm.

Arm Length

Start the tape at your shoulder down to your hand.

Shoulder to Shoulder

This is the width of your shoulder.

Nape of Waist

Measure from the base of the neck at the back to the Natural Waist.

Waist of Hem

Measure from your Natural Waist to the dress hem. Note: The length is not measured starting from the garment neckline.

 

 

Neck

Measure loosely around the neck. You will not need this measurement unless your dress has a high neck or collar.

Length of Shoulder to Bust

Measure from the top of your shoulder to the nipple.

Nipple to Nipple

Measure across the bust nipple to nipple.
