BUST – Stand Straight. Don’t wear bulky layers Measure under the arms, around the fullest part of their bust with only the bra they intend to wear with the dress.

NATURAL WAIST – Measure around their natural waistline. Approx 1.5 inches above the belly button.  Ensure customer is relaxed and not inhaling.

HIPS – Stand Straight – Ensure nothing is in pockets Run the tape around the hip/middle bottom. Not the hip bones. Tape should be firm but not overly tight.

LENGTH If your customer measures over 5’9 in height, we recommended extra length be ordered. Extra length is set at 4 inches. Hollow to floor is 61 inches.

Tania Olsen Designs strongly suggests the store of purchase take the measurements of the customer. After writing down all the measurements, look on the size charts provided to see which sizes the customer is lining up with.

Sizes cannot be changed once ordered are confirmed. It is normal to be between 2-3 sizes and the correct size should be chosen based on their shape and the style of gown. All sizes should be selected based on the customers measurements on the size chart.

Dress samples should be used for the style only as they can stretch and change shape over time and not give an accurate size. It is recommended to keep their sizes on file and to re-measure before they try/collect their gown as they may have changed shape over the ordering period.

NOTE: It is customary for most people to have minor alterations to get a perfect fit. If you are unsure about which size to order please contact Tania Olsen Designs.
