How to measure your body for your custom dresses

As all our dresses are custom made specifically for you, we need you to
provide us your body measurement precisely. Perfect measurement is the
way to a perfect fitting custom dress.

Helpful tips for perfect measurement

  • Take a loose measuring tape – it could be cloth or plastic but a tape which is flexible and not carpenter tape.
  • Be careful to measure using the beginning of the tape and keep it firm.
  • Wear fitted clothing for taking the measurements – such as tights, cycling shorts, leggings, preferably just your undergarments.
  • Measure your body accurately – do not make any additions or deductions to your body measurement while specifying here. Based on the design selected our designer will make appropriate changes to the measurement to make your favourite dress.
  • If you need to provide any specification with respect to your measurement provide it in additional instruction column.
  • It will save you time if you note the measurements on a piece of paper first and then fill it all together. This is important as in case the details are lost while feeding on the site, you still till have them on paper.
  • A friend or relative may also help you take your body measurement.
  • Do not provide any measurement from any label size of any of your garment.

Once you place the order we will check all your measurements and see if they are in proportion before making your dress.
We will contact you if we need to reconfirm the measurements.
