How To Measure

A perfect-fitting dress starts with perfect measurements. Before ordering a made-to-measure dress from our shop, we strongly encourage finding a professional local tailor who can help you measure accurately. Here, we'll show you which measurements are needed and how to correctly take them. Warning: measuring yourself at home is trickier than you think! For best results, always have your measurements taken by a professional local tailor. Standard Dresses


This is not your bra size, when measuring you must wear a bra. Your arms should be relaxed, and down at your sides. Then, take the tape across the fullest part of your bust and around your back.


This is the natural waistline, which is also the smallest part of your waist. Typically it's about an inch above your belly button.


Please measure the widest part of your hips, across the hipbone, which is approximately 7 inches below the natural waistline. This measurement is not needed for full gowns.

Hollow to Floor

Stand upright and keep your feet together. Then measure the length from your shoulder to your heels. (Just take the tape from your front, with bare feet).

As to the bust size, you can also measure as the method below. But please remember that before measuring, you must raise up the bust area by placing some material inside the dress and then remeasure the dress to get an accurate bust measurement in 4 steps as below:
1. One side to nipple. 2. Nipple to nipple. 3. Another side to nipple. 4. The back of your bust.
Shoulder - From the edge of the shoulder socket, measure across the back to the same point on the other shoulder.
