Measuring Guide

Notice: V.P highly recommend you to have your measurements taken by a professional seamstress. If not, please follow our measuring guide carefully.

Here Are Some Tips For Measuring:
  • You should have a friend or a professional seamstress measure you.
  • Measure with undergarments similar to those you will wear with your dress, do not measure over other clothing.
  • Make sure the measuring tape is parallel to the floor and pulled evenly across the body with no slack.You should be able to breathe.
  • If your measurements fall between sizes, it is best to order one size up.
  • Measure yourself twice for accuracy.

Follow Five Steps To Take Proper Measurements:

Stand straightly and comfortably with equal weight on both feet and arms resting easily at sides.
  • Bust: Measure around the fullest part of the bust, keeping the tape measure parallel to the floor.
  • Waist: Find your natural waistline. Measure around the narrowest part.
  • Hip: Measure 8-10″ below the waist to find the fullest hip. Measure the fullest part of the hip, keeping the tape measure parallel to the floor.
  • Front length to the waistline: Measure from the neck base through the bust tip to the lower edge of the measuring tape at the waist.
  • Length from Hollow to Hem: Measure from the center of the collarbone (Hollow) to the dress hem. Note: The length is not measured starting from the garment neckline.
  • Arm Girth: Relax your arm and measure around the largest part of the upper arm.
  • Width of shoulder: Measure from the arm base to other arm base.
  • The sleeve length: The elbow slightly bent,from the sleeve head through the external edge of the elbow to the wrist.
  • Height: Stand straightly and measure your height without shoes (from Head to Toe) . Also measure the height of your wedding shoes.

Size fit guide

October 6th, 2007 admin Posted in Measurement No Comments »

   We strongly recommend having your measurements taken by a professional seamstress.If you can not get professional measurements, we strongly advise that you do not take the measurements by yourself. Have someone help you and follow the guidelines on our website. Do not forget to tell us the height of your Wedding Shoes and this is very important. The length of your gown is your height Without Shoes and the height of your Wedding Shoes. 
   We don not suggest you ordering a dress using only your dress or bra size. Bridal gowns are meant to have a close fit to the body so they tend to be cut smaller than sportswear. When ordering, you will be asked for your body measurements. Based on those measurements you would order a size that would best fit your own measurements. What happens often is that women fall between two sizes. So we suggest you ordering the size that should fit your larger measurements. For most women that is the waist. Obviously the dress would then be a little bit too large in one area. That can be resolved with alterations. These dresses are made in a way such that alterations will not be a problem.
   There is some suggestion for different gown styles to make your dresses fit your body well.
   A-LINE style gowns fit closely on the bust and waist, so the size you choose should be the larger measurements in those areas.
   BALL GOWN or PICK-UP style gowns fit closely on the bust and waist, so the size you choose should be the larger measurements in those areas.
   SHEATH or SLIP style gowns fit close on the bust, waist, and hips, so the size you choose should be the larger measurements in those areas.
   MERMAID or TRUMPET style gowns fit close on the bust, waist, and hips, so the size you choose should be the larger measurements in those areas.
   EMPIRE style gowns’s high waist makes the important measurements the bust, so the size you choose should fit snugly across the bust and midriff, yet flow at the waist and hip.
   TEA-LENGTH style gowns no matter where they hit your lower leg, so the exact length is really a matter of personal preference. As with other styles, the bust, waist, and hip measurements are important to the fit, so all the sizes you choose should be the larger measurements.
   Furthermore, vast majority of our wedding dresses have 2 inches of seam allowance. The bust and waist measurements of that wedding dress can be altered 2 inches bigger (1 inches on each side). In other words, if the wedding dress has seam allowance, the bust and waist measurements of that dress can be altered bigger or smaller easily.

How to measure?

August 6th, 2007 admin Posted in Measurement No Comments »

It is very important that the correct measurements should be taken before a gown to be ordered. We strongly recommend having your measurements taken by a professional seamstress. To measure yourself, you must be dressed in only a good fitting bra and underwear. To measure you bust, take the measuring tape around your back at bust level and over your nipples without pulling too tight or leaving too much slack. Do the same at your waist going over your belly button. To properly measure your hip, go around the fullest part of your buttocks, about 7-9 inches below your belly button. One important thing you should care about is that the length of the gown should be the one you measure with the heels you plan to wear with the bridal gown.
