Before you start measuring, remember to use a non stretchable tape. Make sure the tape is level around your body and parallel to the floor. Keep the tape close to your skin without depressing it.

BUST: To measure the circumference of your bust, place one end of the tape measure at the fullest part of your chest, wrap it around (under your armpits, around your shoulder blades, and back to the front) to get the measurement.

WAIST: To measure the circumference of your waist, use the tape to circle the waist at your natural waistline, which is located above your belly button, below your ribcage. Don’t suck in your stomach as you will get a false measurement. The waist measurement is the narrowest part of your waist.

HIP: To 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. Make sure the tape is over the largest part of your buttocks. Use a mirror to help you. The hip measurement is the widest part of your hips including the buttocks.
