How To Take Proper Dress Measurements
Stand with your heels together, measure from the high point of your shoulders down the length of your back measuring from the shoulder to the hem of the garment.
To get the accurate body measurements wear under garments only and record the measurements of the three key fit points, bust, waist, and hips. These areas are key to finding your optimum fit.
Bust - Measure around the fullest part of your bust. Place the measureing tape underneath your arms, and keep your arms to your side.
Natural Waist - Measure around the smallest part of your waistline below your rib cage above your belly button.
Hips - Stand with your heels together, measure around the fullest part of your hips and rear.
