Measuring Guide

A perfect-fitting dress starts with perfect measurements. Before ordering a made-to-order dress from okbridalshop.com, we strongly recommend you to find a professional local tailor who can help you measure accurately. Here, we'll show you which measurements are needed and how to correctly take them. Warning: measuring yourself at home is trickier than you think! For best results, always have your measurements taken by a professional local tailor.

  • Standard Dresses


    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 (ca. 2.5cm) above belly button
    • Keep tape slightly loose to allow for breathing room

    Hips
    • Find the widest part of the hips
    • Usually about 7 inch (ca. 18cm) below natural waist
    • Tape should brush across both hipbones

    Shoulder
    • Shoulder - From the edge of the shoulder socket, measure across the back to the same point on the other shoulder.

    Hollow to Floor (Bare Foot)
    • Stand straight with feet together
    • Measure in bare feet
    • Begin at the hollow space between the collarbones and pull tape straight down to the floor
    • To fit high heels, we’ll add an extra 2 inch (ca. 5cm) onto custom-sized floor-length dresses and dresses with trains

    Height
    • Stand straight with feet together
    • Measure in bare feet
    • Begin at the top of the head and pull tape straight down to the floor
