How to measure yourself
Our Written measuring guide
We are so excited that you are ordering from ThingsIAdore-Bridal. At ThingsIAdore we offer affordable luxury wedding dresses to suit all budgets. We do not believe in one size fits all so our dresses are made to fit your particular body measurements. All our designs have various options which allows you to change details to suit your own personal style.
We have created a step by step guide for measuring which should take no longer than 10 minutes. It's important to follow the steps correctly as we can only deliver great results with the right measurements.
To ensure you get your measurement accurate you will need a measuring tape and a mirror to make sure your posture is good. We recommend you take your measurements in the lingerie you will be wearing on your big day or something similar. This will help in getting your measurements correct for a perfect fit.
1. Measure your bust.
You will need to measure the fullest part of your bust to get accurate measurement. Make sure the measuring tape goes under your arms.
Keep the measuring tape snug but not too tight. If you do it too tight (if your bust will pop out over the tape) the measurements will be incorrect.
2.Measure your underbust
place the tape to measure firmly around your chest and let it rest just under your bust, making sure the tape is lying straight across your back. Pull it snugly, not too tight
3.Measure your waist
You can find your natural waist by measuring 2 inches up from your belly button. It's usually the smallest part of your waistline. At the crease, measure around your waist, making sure that the measuring tape is a bit loose
4. Measure your hips.
Stand with your feet together. Measure around the fullest part of your hips and rear. This is typically midway between your crotch and your belly button. Again you'll want to keep the measuring tape somewhat loose, so that your dress size doesn't end up being too small.
5 Measure your hollow to the floor
Mark where your collarbones are, and then measure from the marking down to the floor. You will need to take the measurement with the exact shoes you will be wearing. If you are ordering a short dress, then please measure from your collarbones to the end of the dress (hemline)
Measuring has never been so easy but if you require additional help,please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you for ordering from thingsIadore-bridal. We look forward to working on your bespoke gown for your big day.
