How to Measure Accurately For A Wedding Dress
In order to get the best fit for your dress you will want to be sure you know the accurate way to measure to ensure a proper fit.
Bust size: This is not your bra size. Measure around your chest, at the fullest point of the bust (not under the bust).
Waist size: While standing up straight, bend at the waist to one side. The crease that forms is where your natural waist is located; measure there. It should be the narrowest part of your waist. You'll want to leave some breathing room, so don't hold the measuring tape to snugly. Hold the measuring tape how you want the dress to fit.
Hip size: Standing straight with your feet together, measure around the fullest part of the hips.
- Hollow to Floor: Standing straight with your bare feet together, measure from the hollow space between your collar bones to the floor.
