Measurements – the How Tos

Each dress is custom made according to your measurements so it’s important that you measure well. We strongly recommend that you have your measurements  taken with a soft tape  by a professional or as a minimum with the help of another person.  Each dress will go through a quality control process to be sure it meets the requirements sent to us before shipping. If your measurements were not accurate for whatever reason, you will need to have final alterations  done locally

Please follow the measurement instructions, and measure yourself carefully.

Measurement Methods

To get an accurate body measurement, always keep the tape parallel to the floor when measuring. Wear undergarments only (what you would wear under this dress) including your normal breast forms. Do not measure over clothing
