How to measure your body

Updated: Feb 23

For choosing a pattern size or for shopping from distance, is important to have the right body measurements.

How to measure your body

Learn how to measure your body accurate & easy!

- Take your measurements against your skin and not over your clothes. For the most accurate measurements wear only your bra and knickers.

- Tape measure has to sit firmly around the points you are measuring. Don't pull it too tight and keep it parallel to the floor. It may be helpfull to take your measurements in front of a mirror.

- All above measurements must be taken as a circumference.


Bust measurements sit at the fullest part of your chest.

Waist at the smallest part of your waist.

Hips at the widest part of your hips.

Hope this was helpful!
