How to Measure 

 

  • Always stand straight with your heels together and arms down at your side while being measured
  • Bust, Natural Waist, Hip, Hollow to Hem are required to select a size
  • Measurements should be against the body with undergarments (bra, slips) that will be worn with the dress during the event.
  • Keep thumb behind the tape. Tape should be snug but not too tight.
  • Hollow to Hem. Wear shoes with the same heel height being worn in event to obtain measurement.
  • The size chosen is your decision. We are able to provide tips and advice when you contact us at info@jadeiteqipao.com
