HOW TO MEASURE FOR A BRIDESMAID DRESS

OK, BEFORE YOU GET STARTED, WEAR SOMETHING FORM-FITTING TO GET THE MOST ACCURATE MEASUREMENTS. ALSO, DON'T PULL THE MEASURING TAPE TOO TIGHT AROUND YOUR BODY. YOU'LL WANT TO GIVE YOURSELF SOME WIGGLE ROOM SO THAT YOU CAN BREATHE.

NOW, GRAB SOME MEASURING TAPE AND LET'S GET STARTED!

BUST
WRAP THE MEASURING TAPE AROUND THE FULLEST PART OF YOUR BUST, USUALLY ABOVE THE NIPPLE. NOTE: THIS IS NOT YOUR BRA SIZE!

WAIST
WRAP TAPE AROUND THE SMALL OF YOUR WAIST, USUALLY AN INCH ABOVE YOUR BELLYBUTTON.

HIPS
WRAP AROUND THE WIDEST PART OF YOUR HIPS.

DRESS LENGTH
TAKEN FROM THE POINT DRESS HITS YOUR SHOULDER, DOWN TO THE HEMLINE.

STRAPLESS DRESS LENGTH
TAKEN FROM THE TOP OF THE NECKLINE, DOWN TO THE HEMLINE.
