In order to ensure your dress fits like a dream, you’re going to need your measurements. Whether you’re having a dress made for you or having one altered to fit correct sizing is important. Getting measured by a professional will always be more accurate than measuring yourself, however if this is not possible then all you need is a fabric tape measure and a trusted friend or family member. Remember the more accurate the information the better your dress will fit.

First thing to remember is that you will not be wearing clothes under your dress! Try to take measurements in your underwear, if possible the same underwear you’re planning to wear on the day. You will need to measure the Bust, Waist, Hips, Hollow to Hem and if you are wearing a dress with sleeves the Arm Girth and Inside Sleeve. It’s a good idea to have your phone or a pen and piece of paper to hand in order to keep track.

Measurements Model

Bust– Your bust is not your bra size so don’t automatically go on what the measurement is in your bra.  Take the tape around your back and bring it across the fullest part of your bust which is across your nipples. Arms should ideally be down at your sides as they would be when wearing the dress. Make sure the tape is horizontal across your back.

Waist- Measure the smallest part of your waist, normally an inch or so above your belly button. Take the tape all the way around and back to the front to measure. Before noting the measurement while the tape is around your waist be sure to take a few deep breaths to ensure you’re not holding your stomach in. This will make sure you can breathe on the day!

Hips- The widest part of your lower body, measure across the hipbone usually about 7 inches below the waistline. Take the tape all the way around ensuring the tape is horizontal.

Hollow to Hem-  Take the tape and begin at the hollow of your neck and measure down to where you want the dress to end. And if you want a fuller skirt, measure out at an angle to allow for the full dress. If you can, wear the heels you will wear with your wedding dress if not wear ones of the same height.

The next two measurements are only required if you are planning on wearing a dress with sleeves;

Arm Girth- Measure around the largest part of your upper arm, make sure the tape isn’t tight otherwise sleeve won’t be very comfortable.

Inside Sleeve- Begin the measuring tape from your armpit along a straight arm to your wrist.

Remember it is always better to round the number’s up and have the dress a little big (don’t suck in as every woman does when trying on dresses it will give you unreliable measurements and you might get disappointed if the dress turns up and its too small). Also ladies, some of you may be thinking of losing weight for the wedding but don’t take this into account when measuring. To take the dress in is easier than taking it out, not to mention cheaper.

If you’re still not 100% sure where to measure use the above picture to get a basic idea of where to measure on your body.

Please don’t forget wedding dress sizes run smaller than everyday high street sizes. The number on the dress bears no relation to beautiful you look or how happy you feel. If you plan on buying a dress using UK sizes, knowing your measurements will help you and your dress consultant decide which size will be suitable for you to try on.

Hopefully we have provided you with some helpful guidance, and wish you the best of luck 🙂
