The bust measurement,

start by wrapping the measuring tape around the fullest part of your bust:

  • Wrap snugly but not tightly, going under the arms and all the way around
  • The tape should be parallel to the ground
  • Wear a bra for measurement accuracy

Bust Measurements

 

The bust length and hem length

  • For a shoulder to bust-length, place the tape tip on the top of your shoulder and bring it down to the bottom of your bust
  • For the entire length, start from the shoulder to where you want the hem to be
  • Keep the tape at a 90-degree angle from the ground

Length Measurements

 

The sleeve length and arm circumference

  • For circumference, wrap the tape around the widest part of your upper arm. Bend your arm at the elbow so it leaves a little room for movement

  • For length, simply place the tape at the end of your shoulder and down to where you want the sleeve to finish
