LADIES - HOW TO MEASURE

Measurement Questionnaires 

Measure over the undergarments you normally wear. Hold the tape measure comfortably snug, but not tight.

Dress Length: Please measure from the top of your shoulder, over the fullest part of your bust, to hem or desired end of dress (without shoes).  For a full length dress, measure from top of your shoulder to the floor without shoes.  For a below or above knee length dress, measure from top of your shoulder to the desired end point (without shoes). (Required)
Bust: Please measure around the fullest part of your bust and straight across your back, keeping the tape a little loose for comfort.  Kindly wear a bra when you take this measurement.  Be aware that wearing no bra versus a strapless or regular bra can make quite a difference in measurements. 

Do not use your bra size measurement! A woman who wears a 34A bra will have a much different bust measurement than a woman who wears a 34D! Also, please note that the time of the month that measurements are taken can cause the bust measurement to fluctuate.
