Indicates required field
The smallest part of your waist, usually at or just above your belly button.
While measuring your natural waist, pull the tape tightly to get see how small you can go. Usually around 4 inches.
Measure your circumference 3-4" below natural waist, where most modern pants waistlines lay.
Measure around the fullness of the hip and rump, usually about 8-9" below natural waist.
Measure just below the bust to get a measurement of the full rib cage. Usually 4-5" above natural waist.
Measure around the widest point of the bust, with and without a bra. provide the smaller of the two measurements.
Waist to Full Bust
While wearing a bra (with the straps sitting at a nicely tightened level), measure the distance between your natural waist and the point of your bust (apex).
Waist to Underbust
Measure from your natural waist to just under the bust. Usually around 4".
Waist to Underarm
Measure your waist to your underarm, preferably while the arm is down against the body. Place the end of the tape lightly against the pit, and lower the arm. Check where it falls against the waist.
Waist to Lap over Thigh
Sit in a firm chair. Measure the distance between your natural waist and the top of the thigh vertically. This determines how low the corset can go and still allow you to sit.
Measure from where the neck meets the shoulder, over the full part of the bosom, down to natural waist.
Nape to Waist (back)
Measure from where the shoulder and neck meet at center back down to the natural waist.
Measure the back horizontally, the distance between both shoulderblades. It helps to use standard bra straps as a reference.
Measure from where shoulder meets neck to the tip of the shoulder.
