How to measure yourself for a custom made dress?
When shopping online I always have questions about the size to be delivered to me, and even when we order dresses from the Romanian designers made for us, we always have a hold. Fortunately, I have some tips that will make you an expert in buying clothing in the virtual environment.
Most online stores (even those with Romanian designers) have tables with special measurements that you have to take yourself to determine the size you fit.
Read my home measurement guide so that you become a professional in determining your desired size.
To greatly determine our size, we need a bust, waist, and hip, but when we order a customized product, we may need more sizes or specific sizes. In the images below you find the necessary size for a product made for you, and a little further in the article will explain how to take each one of them.
To start you need a meter of tailoring, paper and something to write. You can try with a snorkel and a ruler instead of a meter, but my advice is not to try this because you risk losing the centimeters on the way. You can also save the measures on your phone so you can keep them every time you find something spontaneous.
And now is the time to measure.
BUST is the most prominent part of the breasts. To find out the circumference of the bust put the tailoring centimeter around the chest in the breast area and measure (many times if necessary) until you find the largest measure around your breasts. WARNING, do not measure lightly, but measure directly on the body without raising the centimeter too hard (which is true of all the measures you will take).
WAIST is the narrowest part of the chest. To find the waistline you are looking for the area where the ribs end, and it is usually about two fingers above the navel. Measure it around the waist to find its circumference. Tips: Link a string or belt around your waist and you can find it.
ABDOMEN is the part a little more prominent than the waist, and usually is about 3 fingers under the navel and in the bones of the basin. Measures circumference around the abdomen.
HIPS is the most prominent part of the pool. Measure several times until you find the largest measure around the basin.
For all the other dimensions you have a fairly explicit film below, and we all know that a picture makes a thousand words.
