How to take your measurements

When measuring yourself please make sure that you wear shoes with the exact same heel height as what you plan to wear on your wedding day. If you plan to wear a stick-on backless bra on your wedding day please make sure you put one on when taking your measurements. Please wear any slimmers or underwear you plan to wear on your wedding day as slimmers for instance can significantly alter your measurements.

 

In order to determine your size please have a look at the size charts below:
