To ensure accurate measurements, we suggest having a professional seamstress measure you. If you do not get a professional seamstress to take your measurements, please follow this guide to ensure a good fit.

We can only be guided by your selection of sizes, no responsibility is taken. Always get someone else to make the measurements for you: measuring yourself will give inaccurate numbers and could lead to disappointment. Measure with undergarments similar to those you will wear with your dress; do not measure over other clothing.


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.


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.


This is the widest part of your hips, across the hipbone. Measurement is taken approximately 7 inches below the natural waistline. This measurement is not needed for full gowns.
