Firstly you must know the size of your clothes, therefore taking into account your proper body measurement and avoid frustrating situations later on.
But you should also take into consideration small factors such as, if you are a size 6 with a huge bust, go for a size bigger, to encompass the larger bust or If you are usually in between sizes, it is best to go for the bigger size in case of slim fit clothes and the smaller size in case of loose fit clothes. Also when taking your measurement, be sure to be in your undergarment in order to get the best fitting.To get a perfect fit, when measuring, hold tape a bit loose and not tight around the body and follow our guide.
HOW TO MEASURE A WOMAN
Bust - Measure the bust at the fullest part. Measure all around the body (total circumference).
Waist - Measure the waist where the body bends. It helps to bend side to side to identify exactly where to measure. You can put an elastic band around the waist to mark the correct placement.
Hip - Measure the hips at the fullest part, usually around the seat.
High Hip - Measure around the fullest part, about 3 - 4" below the waist. This is helpful when fitting a slim skirt or pants (to get an accurate idea of the shape of the hip, or the belly).
Front Waist Length - Start at the shoulder (right next to the base of the neck), and measure to the waist, measuring over the fullest part of the bust.
Back Waist Length - Measure from the base of the neck (in the center, not the side), to the center of the waistline.
Arm Length - Measure from the top of the arm (find the bone at the shoulder/top of arm) to the wrist (find the bone at the side of the wrist), WITH THE ELBOW BENT. It's important to keep the elbow bent to allow for movement when you make a sleeve.
Shopping online can be a serious gamble if you don’t know your proper measurements and how sizes of clothes convert into your measurement and if you order clothes that don’t fit your size, then you will have to go through the frustrating procedure of scheduling returns and exchanges.
