How to measure yourself

How to measure yourself

1: Use a flexible tape measure and make sure it is laid flat against you with no twists.

2: Stand in front of a mirror for the measuring part.

3: Breathe normally, don’t hold your breath!

4: Be as relaxed as possible.

5: Wear minimal clothing for the measuring part.

6: If you have long hair, tie it up in a pony tail. (or out of your way)


Full Bust: Lift arms and place tape measure under you armpits bustline.

Waist: Bend side to side. Where your body creases is your natural waist.

Full Hip: Stand naturally with feet together and measure around the fullest part of your hips.

Girth: Stand with your legs slightly apart and measure the whole of your torso.

For Sleek Edge custom costumes we will measure you if you are local to the Sheffield area. If you are not local we can do the measurements via zoom.

For leggings, skirts and ready made dresses sizes are based on full hip measurement.

And last but not least for crop tops sizes are based on full bust measurements.
