FINDING YOUR MEASUREMENTS
BUSTBegin with your arms by your sides. Measure under your arms, running the tape around the fullest part of your bustline and across your shoulder blades.
NATURAL WAISTFrom the natural crease of your waist, measure around your waistline. Be sure to keep one finger between the tap and your body to ensure a more comfortable fit.
LOW WAISTLow waist falls about 2 to 3 inches below the natural crease of your waist. Measure this point while keeping one finger between the tape and your body to ensure a more comfortable fit.
HIPSBegin 7 to 8 inches below your waistline. Place both feet together and measure around the fullest part of your hips.
INSEAMTaken for full-length pants, measure the inside of your leg, just below the crotch to 1 inch beneath your ankle.
