How to Measurements Correctly

Key Rules for Accurate Measurement Taking

  • Stand up STRAIGHT, avoid slouching or tilting your head down. Maintain a balance between relaxation and tension in your body.
  • Perform measurements WITHOUT CLOTHES, preferably in the morning.
  • Ensure that the tape fits SNUGLY against the skin without overtightening or sagging.
  • Always keep the tape strictly PARALLEL to the floor; using a mirror for reference is ideal when taking measurements.

 

BREAST
Put on the bra you plan to wear with the item. Measure the chest circumference at the most protruding points. Place one end of the measuring tape on the protruding point of the breast and wrap it around the body under the arms.

WAIST
Wrap the tape around your waist at the NARROWEST point, slightly ABOVE the navel and just below the rib cage. If you have trouble finding the measuring line, lean to the side, and the crease that forms is your waist. Record the measurement on the measuring tape at the end of exhalation.

HIPS 
Stand with your feet together.Wrap the measuring tape around your hips so that it passes over the WIDEST part of your hip.
