For best results, we advise having a professional seamstress or tailor take your measurements. If you measure in between sizes, we recommend ordering the size larger and tailoring the gown down for a perfect fit. Please note that most gowns will require alterations regardless of measurements.
Bust: With arms relaxing at your sides, position the tape so that it covers the widest part of your back and the fullest part of your chest.
Waist: Position the tape around the smallest part of your torso, or approximately 1-2 inches above your belly button. You can also bend side to side and position the tape where your torso creases to find your waist.
Hip: With feet together, position the tape around the fullest part of your hip and bottom.
