These measurements are used to ensure that your wedding dress is tailored by the seamstress for a perfect, custom fit. IF YOU ARE LOST WITH A TAPE MEASURE -Dry Cleaners in major cities have a tailor on hand that can take your measurements accurately.
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: 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.
Hip: This is the widest part of your hips, across the hipbone. This measurement is not needed for full gowns.
Measuring for the Hemline of your wedding gown: This is the length from your hollow, the hollow just under your neck to your heels. Take the tape from your back, stand upright with your feet kept together wearing the same height shoes you will wear on your wedding day.
