How to measure correctly

The best way to measure, is to use a tailors measuring tape. If you don´t have any of these at home, you can simply use a longer piece of cord and a ruler. (Put the cord around your bust, waist or hips and mark the beginning and the end with your fingers. Then measure the marked length with a ruler.) You can take the measurements by yourself while looking into the mirror, or ask a friend to help you.

  • BUST
    Take a tape and measure around the widest part of your chest. (without bra, unless you are wearing it during dancing as well)
  • WAIST
    Position the measuring tape around the narrowest part of your waist.
  • HIPS
    Measure horizontally around the fullest part of your hips and buttocks. The best way to find the fullest part, is to look at you in profile.
