How to Take Measurements

If you have never measured yourself, it may seem like a difficult task. Don't worry! I have some tips to help make the process easier for you.

  1. Wear the undergarments you will wear with the item you order. Fit can be altered with the use of a different bra or shapewear.
  2. Likewise, wear the shoes (or a shoe of equal heel height) that you will wear with the item you order. This is especially important when measuring length for skirts.
  3. Do not round your measurements up or down. Additionally, do not guess, or assume measurements based on ready-to-wear clothing sizes. For the best fit, please provide exact measurements.
  4. Stand in front of a mirror. Ensure you are measuring parallel to the ground (or parallel to a wall, if measuring length).
  5. Use a tape measure. If one is not available, use a string and mark on the string where the measurement should be taken. Then, lay the string flat, and measure it with a hard rule or hard tape measure.
