Follow these 5 easy steps to choosing the closest size to fit your body!
You will need:
- 1 x tape measure (measure in inches ") - someone to measure you - Heels that you would be wearing (or a similar heel height)
Step 1 (see A on diagram) Take the tape horizontally around your back and bring it across the the fullest part of your bust. **Handy Tip** the 'full bust' is not your bra size!!
Step 2 (see B on diagram) Take the tape horizontally around the smallest part of your waistline. This should be an inch or so above your belly button.
Step 3 (see C on diagram) For your hip, take the tape horizontally around the widest part of your bum.
Step 4 (See D on diagram) Take the top of the tape and place it in the indentation between you collar bones and drag tape down to the floor ensuring that you go over the bust and that person who is being measured is looking straight ahead (and not down)
Step 5 Please refer to our measuring chart below and using your 3 measurements work out which size you will be.
How to Work the Measuring Chart;
Zara has a 35" bust, a 31.5" waist and a 42" hip.
So even although she would be a size 12 with her bust, she must go by her biggest measurement which would be her hip. So Zoe would be a size 16 in our dresses.
Remember that this is just a number and not your standard sizing so please don't be put off going up a few sizes if you need to as it is much easier to take in a dress, than take out.
