LADIES - HOW TO MEASURE

Dress Length:

Please measure from the top of your shoulder, over the fullest part of your bust, to hem or desired end of dress (without shoes).  For a full length dress, measure from top of your shoulder to the floor without shoes.  For a below or above knee length dress, measure from top of your shoulder to the desired end point (without shoes). (Required)

Bust:

Please measure around the fullest part of your bust and straight across your back, keeping the tape a little loose for comfort.  Kindly wear a bra when you take this measurement.  Be aware that wearing no bra versus a strapless or regular bra can make quite a difference in measurements.
