Measurement Guide

How To Measure

It is highly recommended that you wear the same or similar underwear that you will be wearing with you dress in order to get the ultimate fit. If you choose to measure with clothes on, make sure the clothes are very light and tight fitting in order to get the most accurate measurements possible. Make sure there is no slack in the measuring tape when pulled across the body, and also that it is parallel to the floor whilst measuring.

We recommend using breast tape for ultimate fit and comfort as our dresses are designed to be worn without a brassiere.

Please round to the nearest half-centimeter (Ex: 37.0 cm, 37.5 cm or 38.0 cm)



1. Bust

  • This is not your bra size
  • Measures around your chest, across the fullest part of the bust
  • Use the same underwear as you will use with the dress

2. Upper Bust

  • Measures around your chest, above the breasts and across the armpit
  • Make sure you relax and let your arms hang at your sides
  • For strapless dress styles tighten the measuring tape a bit extra
  • This measurement should be less than the measurement of your bust (exceptions can occur)

3. Under Bust

  • Measures around your chest, underneath the bust
  • Make sure you relax and let your arms hang at your sides
  • Take the measurement around 7cm below your bust
  • This is not your waist measurement

4. Waist

  • Measure around the thinnest part of your upper body
  • Your waist is usually located slightly above your belly button
  • It is best to keep the tape slightly loose to allow for breathing space

5. Hip

  • Measure across the widest part of your hips

6. Shoulder to Shoulder

  • Measure from the edge of the shoulder, across the back to the same point on the other shoulder

7. Shoulder to Bust

  • Measure from top of your shoulder, right between your neck and the shoulder's edge, down to the widest part of the bust
  • Remember to use the same point as when measuring your bust

8. Shoulder to Waist

  • Measure on top of your shoulder, right between your neck and the shoulder's edge, down the back to your waistline
  • Remember to use the same height for your waistline as before
  • The measurement should be around 40 cm

9. Body Length

  • Stand straight with your feet together. Measure in bare feet
  • Measure in bare feet
  • Measure from the top of your shoulder and let the measuring tape fall straight down to the ground
  • The difference between, ”Your Actual Height” and ”Body Length” should be around 25 cm. The difference is equal to your neck and head

10. Your Actual Height

  • This is your regular height
  • Measure in bare feet
  • Stand straight with feet together. Measure in bare feet
  • Measure at the height of the top of your head and pull tape straight down to the floor
  • The difference between “Your Actual Height” and “Body Length” should be around 25 cm. The difference is equal to your neck and head

11. High Heels of Your Shoes

  • The total length the shoes add to you height
  • Put 0 if you would like to use the dress with flat shoes
