Take your actual body measurements as they are more accurate than measuring over your clothes.
(a) Bust: measure around the fullest part of your bust and across your shoulder blades.
(b) Waist: measure around the natural waist, keeping the tape measure taut.
(c) Hips: stand with your feet together. Put the tape around the fullest part of your bottom at the top of your leg, about 20cm (8’’) below your natural waistline.
(d) Inside Leg: measure from the top of the inside leg at the crotch to where the trousers are normally worn on the shoes.
Jacket Length: measure from the centre back of your neck to your hemline. Then length measurement will vary depending on the style of garment.
Skirt Length: measure from the natural waistline to the desired hem position on the leg.
Dress Length: dress lengths are measured from the waist as you would for a skirt length.
