Measuring Guide


A perfect-fitting dress starts with perfect measurements. Before ordering a dress from BjsBridal.com, we strongly encourage finding a professional tailor to accurately measure your body. This will help you find your best fit on our Size Chart. Here, we'll show you which measurements we use and how to take them or have them taken correctly.

Warning: measuring yourself at home is trickier than you think! For best results, have your measurements taken by a professional tailor or a friend.

Bust
* This is Not your bra size!
* Wear an unpadded bra (your dress will have a built-in bra).
* Relax arms at sides.
* Pull tape across the fullest part of the bust.
Waist
* Find the natural waist.
* This is the smallest part of the waist.
* Usually about 1 inch above belly button.
* Keep tape slightly loose to allow for breathing room.
Hips
* Find the widest part of the hips.
* Usually about 7 inches below natural waist.
* Tape should brush across both hipbones.
