How To Measure

We recommend having your measurements taken by a professional seamstress. If you cannot get a professional one to take the measurements, please have someone do it for you. To ensure proper fit, we have provided the following measuring guideline for your reference. Measurements should be taken in the undergarment you plan to wear with your gown.

  • Bust
    Bust - Not your bra size! Take 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
    Waist- This is the smallest part of your waist. Typically it`s an inch or so above your belly button. Also known as the natural waistline.
  • Hips
    Hips- This is the widest part of your hips, across the hipbone. Measurement is taken approximately 7 inches below the natural waistline. This measurement is not needed for full gowns.
  • Hollow to Hem
    Hollow to Hem
    Hollow to Hem- This is the length from your hollow ( the hollow just under your neck ) to your heels. (Take the tape from your front, with bare foot ). You should stand upright and your feet should keep together.
