- When measuring, be flexible with the tape and not tight
- No measuring tape? Use a piece of string and use a ruler to measure it.
- Ask a friend to help you take measurements or head to a tailor.
- Use your exact measurements when selecting your size.
OUR LENGTH OPTIONS
Measuring yourself will give you a more accurate idea of your size. Once you have determined your body measurement, it’s a good idea to consider your body shape and the styles and cuts to suit both your body measurements and shape.
Find yourself a tape measure for accuracy. Ideally, you should measure when wearing only your undergarments. Do NOT measure yourself wearing jeans, sweats, or other bulky clothing - the results will be inaccurate.
Measurements for product descriptions vary based on style; check the product page to confirm. We recommend choosing the length option based on your height and body type - some taller folks but have longer torsos and shorter legs and vice versa. All bodies are beautiful and different!
BUST - Measure the bust at the fullest part. Measure all around the body (total circumference).
WAIST: Measure around the natural waistline – the narrowest part of your waist – keeping the tape comfortably loose. The size of your waist, hips and bust may give you an idea of your body shape. An Hourglass body shape for instance, will have a small waist and bigger bust and hips.
HIPS: Measure around the fullest part of the hips. This is different for everyone; if you are unsure, take several measurements in this region and use the biggest measurement.
INSIDE LEG: Run the tape measure from the top of the inside leg down to the ankle bone to determine your legs’ length.
HIGH HIP - Measure around the fullest part, about 3 - 4" below the waist. This is helpful when fitting a slim skirt or pants (to get an accurate idea of the shape of the hip, or the belly).
FRONT WAIST LENGTH - Start at the shoulder (right next to the base of the neck), and measure to the waist, measuring over the fullest part of the bust.
BACK WAIST LENGTH - Measure from the base of the neck (in the center, not the side), to the center of the waistline.
ARM LENGTH - Measure from the top of the arm (find the bone at the shoulder/top of arm) to the wrist (find the bone at the side of the wrist), WITH THE ELBOW BENT. It's important to keep the elbow bent to allow for movement when you make a sleeve.
