How do I measure for a bridesmaid dress?

Measurement guides for bust, waist, hip

Please measure only over the undergarments you will be wearing with your bridesmaid dress.

  • Bust: Measure at the fullest part of your bust with your arms down and relaxed.
  • Waist: Measure 3" - 4" above your naval, at the smallest part.
  • Hip: Measure at the widest part.

While bridesmaid dresses are not custom made to your measurements, it is important to be confident in your measurements as each designer's sizing may vary greatly from another. Be sure to match your measurements to the appropriate designer's sizing chart.

Unfortunately, our staff cannot choose a size for any bridesmaid. Please remember that formal attire tends to run smaller than normal "ready to wear" clothing.
