How to Measure Your Curves!
Chest: Place one end of the tape measure at the fullest part of your bust, wrap it around to get the measurement. (Hint make sure you wrap the measuring tape under you armpits and around the circumference of your breast).
Waist: Wrap the measuring tape around where you would place your belt. This would be your natural waistline. Don’t wear a body- shaper or suck in your stomach. You want a comfortable fit. Hint: If you generally wear your clothes below your waist, take that measurement as well.
Hips: Measure the circumference of your hips. Start at one hip and wrap the tape measure around your rear, around the other hip, and back to where you started. This will also allow give you and ideal of how far a skirt or dress might hang in the back! Make sure you have the largest part of your but included. Ask a friend or stand in front of a mirror.
Inseam: Measure your length by doing the following:
Ask a friend. While you’re wearing your perfect fit pants, have a friend stretch the tape from your crotch to the bottom of your ankle.
Do it yourself. Measure wearing your perfect fit pants. Take the measuring take and measure from the crotch to the hem.
The proper inseam on a pair of pants you’re going to purchase will depend on the height of the heel you’ll be wearing with them.
Thigh: Measure the circumference of the fullest part of your thigh. Wrap the tape measure around your thigh from front to back and then around to the front.
Upper arm: Wrap the tape measure around the widest part of your upper arm from front to back and around to the start point.
Sleeve length: Help needed for this one. Take the measuring tape and measure from middle of the back of your neck, down to your elbow, and then to your wrist.
