How to take body measurements

To choose the correct size for you, measure your body as follows:

Wrap the measuring tape around your back and under your arms at the fullest part of your bust.
Stand up straight and bend to one side - the crease created is your natural waist. Wrap your measuring tape around the narrowest part of your natural waist.

To measure you hips, start by standing with your feet together. Wrap the measuring tape around the fullest part of your hips and butt.


Before you start you need:

  • Approximately 10 minutes.
  • A flexible measuring tape.  
  • Stand in front of a mirror or have someone on standby to assist you.

 Bra or no bra?  Decide whether you will be wearing a bra or no bra with the garment, as your bust level and circumference measurement will change with and without a bra.  

Good Posture. Stand upright in a relaxed position with your feet together. Don't suck in your tummy, to avoid a potentially tight fitting garment.
