To correctly measure your dress size, follow these steps:

Take your measurements, wearing only under clothes. This is to avoid bulk which adds centimetres and do not produce an accurate measurement. Stand in front of a mirror, or have somebody else taking it for you.  
  1. The tape measure has to sit firmly around the points you are measuring, without pulling it too tight into the skin, as this will give you the incorrect size.
  2. The bust, waist and hip measurements are taken as circumferences (A, B,C), and is done by holding the tape in a horizontal position. See the diagram to the right.
  3. The bust measurement is taken around the widest part of the upper back and over the widest part of the bust.
  4. The waist is the smallest part of torso, and the measurement is taken over the  smallest part of the back and the waist.
  5. The hip measurement is taken over the widest part of your hips.
A     BUST:
                 This point is taken as a circumference parallel to the floor at the fullest part of your chest.
  B     WAIST:
                 This point is taken as a circumference and taken at the smallest part of your waist.
C     HIP: 
                 This point is taken as a circumference parallel to the floor at the widest part of your hips.
