So you found the perfect bridesmaid dress, and now it’s time for the great debate—what size bridesmaids dress to order. To help you find the best fit, we put together an easy-to-follow guide with tips for how to measure for a bridesmaid dress, so you can easily measure yourself before ordering your dreamy Carlyna style!
Before we get started, we suggest preparing with these items:
• A soft and flexible 60-inch measuring tape
• A notepad and pen to jot down your measurements
• Wear something form-fitting to ensure the most accurate measurements
• Grab your heels for the big day, or a pair that will be similar in height
Make sure the measuring tape is taut but not tight, so you have room to breathe.
Wear the bra you will be wearing with the dress, and pull the tape across the fullest part of the bust.
Bend to one side to find the crease, that's your natural waist. Pull tape across the narrowest part and keep tape slightly loose to allow for breathing room.
Stand straight and pull tape across the widest part of the hips and rear.
Hollow to Floor
Stand straight with bare feet together and measure from the center of the collarbone to the floor.
Height (Bare Foot)
Stand straight with bare feet together and measure from the top of the head to the floor.
Chiffon styles - If you are measuring between sizes, we suggest ordering the larger size.
Satin styles - Our Satin styles run small, we encourage ordering the next size up from your measurements.
