Before start to make the costume, boots or armor, we need to ensure the measurements your measuring up are correct. Here is the detailed measurement guideline and your correct measurements are very importation to us.
Here are the basic measurements we need:
***Remember to provide your exact body size.
***Fill in inches / cm
(1) Gender: (Female / Male)
(2) Weight: (lb / kg)
(3) Height: (From head to foot)
+ Heel: (If you wear high-heel shoes)
(4) Shoulder width: (Width between shoulder ends)
(5) Bust: (Around the biggest past of bust)
(6) Waist: (Around natural waistline)
(7) Hip: (Around the biggest part of hips)
(8) Upper arm circumference: (Measure the girth around the largest part of the upper arm)(9) Thigh circumference: (Place tape at widest section of thigh at the top)
How to take the measurements correctly?
Measure height measurement:
Stand with your back against the wall on the floor, your heels should also be flush against the wall. Remember to take off your shoes and let down your hair from any high ponytails or braids that might boost your height.
If you order the gown dress, you have to provide the heel height of your high-heel shoes, we will add additional length on your dress to cover your shoes.
Measure Shoulder width:
Your back should be straight and your chest should be out. Locate the shoulder points and measure the space between your shoulder points.
*Keep in mind that you should be measuring across the broadest part of your shoulders. This usually lands out roughly 1 to 2 inches (2.5 to 5 cm) below the neckline.
*The tape measure will not be horizontally straight during this measurement. It must bend at a gentle curve along with your shoulders.
Measure your bust circumference:
Wrap the measuring tape around the fullest part of your bust. Make sure the measuring tape is not too high or too low. You should be measuring right where the most protruding part of your bust is, not underneath. That is a completely different measurement.
*The tape measure shouldn’t squeeze your bust too tight or slip down that will result in a measurement that is too big or too small, and ultimately your dress won’t fit correctly.
Measure waist circumference:
Your waist will also be the narrowest part of your torso and it is often located at or above your belly button. Then wrap the measuring tape around your waist, stand up straight and breathe normally. Make sure that the measuring tape is straight all the way around and is not twisted anywhere, especially in the back.
If you order the low-waist skirt/pants, you have to provide your low-waist circumference.
Measure hip circumference:
Wrap the measuring tape around the fullest part of your hips, across your butt and straight across the front of your pelvis. Make sure to keep the tape snug, but not tight, and ensure that the tape measure is level from front to back.
Measure arm circumference:
Wrap the tape measure around the widest part of your upper arm from front to back and around to the start point.
Measure thigh circumference:
Wrap the tape around the thickest part of your thigh. Stand with your legs straight. Find the thickest part of your thigh. This is your upper thigh, right under the buttocks.
Here are some tips we suggest:
➤ Always use a measuring tape and must not estimate with measurements or sizes.
➤ Get someone else to help so they can write down each measurement as you go.
➤ Try to wear Tight-fitting clothes when getting measured to make sure the measurements are accurate.
➤ Provide extra measurements if your order special costume or accessories like swimwear, low-waist pants, collar, wrist accessories etc.
◆ Neck: (neck size taken around base of neck)
◆ Wrist: (the thinnest part of your wrist)
◆ Under bust measurements:
◆ Low waist: (Start at the top of your hip bone, then bring the tape measure all the way around your body.)
We hope this measurement guideline will be useful to take your measurements clearly. If you have any problems of measuring up, please feel free to contact us.
