How to Measure


Bust
If possible, get a friend to help. With arms relaxed at your sides, measure the fullest part of your bust, keeping the tape parallel to the floor.
Height
Stand in stocking feet with your feet slightly apart and your back to a wall. Measure from the floor to the top of your head.
Arm
Bend your elbow 90 degrees and place your hand on your hip. Hold the tape at the center back of your neck. With a friend's help, measure across your shoulder to your elbow, and down to your wrist. The total length in inches is your sleeve length.
