How to take accurate measurements:
Please take the measurements whilst wearing suitable undergarments and while standing tall and straight. Get a friend to help, if possible. Measure yourself holding the tape measure snugly and firmly (not tightly) against your body and make sure it is always parallel to the floor for circumference measurements.

Bust – With arms relaxed at your sides measure around the fullest part of your bust, keeping the tape straight across the back.

Waist – Measure around natural waist line making sure tape fits securely yet comfortably. Try to resist sucking your tummy in.

Hip
– Measure around the fullest part of the hip.

Waist to floor- Take when standing straight from your natural waist to the floor, without shoes.

If you are between sizes we suggest you order a larger size. It is much easier to take your gown in rather than let it out. Please note that the measurements are given as a guild for body size and not exact garment size, the garment measurements will vary according to the styling, fabric and ease of fit.
