How to measure for the most flattering fit

Wedding apparel is typically sized differently than retail clothing, so it’s not uncommon to find yourself requiring wedding apparel one or more sizes larger than your normal dress size. 

 We always recommend having a professional take all of your measurements. Most bridal shops will offer a complimentary measurement. You can also have a seamstress or a tailor in your area take your measurements.

 

Please contact us If you need help locating a seamstress or tailor in your area.

Bust 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.
 
Hip size: Standing with your feet together, measure around the fullest part of the hips. 
 
Hollow-to-Hem Measurement (Length)
 
Your hollow-to-hem measurement is determined by measuring from the center of your collarbone (hollow) to the bottom (hem) of your dress. We highly recommend that you have a formal wear professional perform this measurement.
 
It’s very important that you wear shoes with a similar heel height to those you will be wearing with your gown, and you will also need to take into consideration the fullness of your gown’s skirt. For example, if your gown is an A-line with a full skirt, you will need to move the measuring tape away from the body to ensure that your gown will be the correct length.
