Note: Most girls will need slight alternations. A local tailor can easily alter your dress. If you are between sizes, we recommend that you go with the larger size and have the dress altered to achieve the perfect fit.
“Hollow” means the “hole” at the base of your neck.
All measurements taking without shoes.
Dress Measuring Guide
The below is just a guide. We recommend that whenever possible you get a qualified seamstress to measure your dress size. Always get someone else to make the measurements for you: measuring yourself will give inaccurate numbers and could lead to disappointment. Measure with undergarments similar to those you will wear with your dress; do not measure over other clothing.
For Standard Dresses
Not your bra size! Take the tape around your back and bring it across the fullest part of your bust. Your arms should be relaxed, down at your sides. You must wear a bra when taking this measurement.
This is the smallest part of your waist. Typically it`s an inch or so above your belly button. Also known as the natural waistline.
This is the widest part of your hips, across the hipbone. Measurement is taken approximately 7 inches below the natural waistline. This measurement is not needed for full gowns.
|Hollow to Floor
This is the length from your hollow ( the hollow just under your neck ) to your heels. (Take the tape from your front, with bare foot ). You should stand upright and your feet should keep together.
Stand straight with feet together
Measure in bare feet
Begin at the top of the head and pull tape straight down to the floor
