Measuring Guide

All our dresses are individually made to the measurements you provide following the guide below. This ensures that you get the best fit possible, however please be aware that if you are on a crash diet you may need to do some further alterations just before the wedding.

When taking your measurements you need to have someone else measure you. No matter how careful you are to stand straight or hold yourself properly it still can make a difference.

Bust Measuring

Hips Measuring


Take the tape around your upper back, across the widest part of the bust (over both nipples).

Nipple to nipple

Shoe heel height

As your measurements above are all done barefoot, we also need to know your shoe heel height. Shoes are generally these heights:

Flat: 1cm
Low heel: 5cm
Mid heel: 8cm
High heel: 10cm
Platform: 15cm
We want you to be happy with your dress and therefore the measurements are very important in getting the fit just right. The tape measure should be firm but not too tight.
