Here is the full guidance for you to complete the measuring steps if you want to order a tailor-made dress. Follow each step and remember that only correct measurements ensure the perfect fit.
Please note we do not provide fittings or measuring service so do only order if you are comfortable with this.
You can use this measurement guide to check your size compared to our size chart too, just bust/waist/hip are needed. If you are in between our size, we suggest to take a bigger size, smaller size will be snug fit. .
Attention before you measure:
- You should wear close-fitting underwear
- Keep your body in an upright, natural standing position without unnecessary actions
- When the girth around parts of your body is taken, make sure that the measuring tape is held not too loose nor too tight.
- Our seamstress will add allowance when she makes the clothes
- Have someone to measure for you, and measure TWICE to make sure.
