You can make your body measurements through four parts: bust, waist, hips and hollow to Hem. Here is a guide. We recommend that whenever possible you get a qualified seamstress to measure your wedding dresses size. Always get someone else to make the measurements for you: measuring yourself will give inaccurate numbers and could lead to disappointment.
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 for your wedding dress.
Waist- This is the smallest part of your waist. Typically it's an inch or above your belly button. Also called the natural waistline.
This is the widest part of your hips, across the hipbone. Measurement is taken approximately 7 inches below the natural waistline. This measurement for wedding dress is not needed for full gowns.
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 high-heel shoes). You should stand upright and your feet should keep together.
This is the length from your top of the head to your heels. (Take the tape from your front, with high-heel shoes). You should stand upright and your feet should keep together.
