The videos show you how to take your body measurements correctly. The video guide is language accompanied and we recommend turning on the volume.
Let´s start taking your measurements. You need a measurement tape and 5 minutes of your time. Put yourself in front of a mirror, this can help. Wear tight clothes or only underwear for the best result.
To measure your chest, position and pull the tape measure around your body where your chest is as broadest (under your armpits, around your back and back to the front) to get the right measure.
Fold the measurement tape around your natural waist, where it is as smallest, a few cm above your belly bottom. Keep it parallel to the floor. Avoid holding your breath or pulling your stomach.
TIP: If you are unsure, measure 21 cm straight down from the chest. There is your most defined waist according to our measurement system.
Pull the tape around the widest part of your hips. Adjust the tape measure slightly up and down to ensure that it is the widest part. Look in the mirror to assure you keep the tape straight.

Are you experiencing that the sleeves of your top or dress often too tight around your biceps? We recommend measuring your biceps and adjust the measurement.

Measure the exact sleeve length you want. Place the tape on your shoulders and measure to your elbow. Hold the tape on your elbow and let go of the upper part. Then measure the final length from your elbow to the length desired.
