Your Body Measurement Guild for Clothing Fit

Time to measure!

To find your correct size, use a tape measure and take these measurements in inches. Stand with your back straight in front of a mirror, to make sure that you measure correctly and that the tape measure is kept level (if you can, have a friend assist you).

1. BUST

Measure under your armpits, around your shoulder blades, and over the fullest part of your bust. . For fitting a bra, you also need the measurement just under your bust. Don’t pull the tape measure too tight, simply fitted to the area. 

2. WAIST

Measure around your natural waistline. This is the narrow part of your waist, about an inch above your navel. Relax and breath out before you measure for the most accurate result. 

3. HIP

Your hip should be measured around its fullest part, about 8 inch. below your waist.

4. INSEAM

This is the measurement from your ankle to your groin. Make sure you stand with your legs straight.  You can also measure a pair of pants with the proper length. (If possible, ask a friend to assist).
