Below we have put together a series of simple videos to demonstrate where on your body you are required to measure for each individual measurement.

If you do not have someone to help you measure yourself we have tried to advise tips and tricks on how to still achieve these accurate measurements.

If you do not have a tape measure at home, we now sell these on the website. Click on this link to be directed to our standard tape measures.

Measuring your waist:

This is very simple and easy to do by yourself, simply measure around the smallest part of your waist/stomach. We advise doing this in front of a mirror so you can see if you are pulling the tape measure too tight.

Measuring your Bum:

Simply measure around the largest part of your bum and thighs ensuring the tape measure is not squishing your bum down. Again we advise doing this in front of a mirror so you can see if you are pulling the tape measure too tight.


Inside leg to ankle measurement (this will be for joggers, leggings, ankle length jumpsuits and any other trousers you would like to end around your ankle):

It is very difficult to achieve a correct inside leg measurement when trying to measure this by yourself. We suggest asking someone else to help you if you can.

If you have someone to help measuring you, hold the start of the tape measure to your crotch as close a possible and then with straight legs get your helper to measure down your leg to your inside ankle bone as shown in the video above.

If you do not have someone to help you, get a pair of jeans or similar that you know reach your ankles (or your desired trouser length) and measure down the inside leg seam from the crotch to the end of the leg.

Inside leg to floor measurement (this will be for wide leg trousers, full length and wide leg jumpsuits):

Again It is very difficult to achieve a correct inside leg measurement when trying to measure this by yourself. We suggest asking someone else to help you if you can.

If you have someone to help measuring you, hold the start of the tape measure to your crotch as close a possible and then with straight legs get your helper to measure down your leg to the floor as shown in the video above.

If you do not have someone to help you, get a pair of floor length trousers (or trouser that reach where you would like your new trousers to reach) and measure down the inside leg seam from the crotch to the end of the leg.

 

Jumper dress or shirt dress length:

You can easily measure this length yourself in front of a mirror or have someone help you.

If you are measuring yourself in front of the mirror, measure from your shoulder down to where you would like your dress to finish.

Please remember when measuring your dress lengths that you want to ensure this length will not be too short for you at the back (especially when you bend over). If you have a larger bum this can affect the length of your dresses.

If you have someone to help measure you, hold the start of the tape measure to your shoulder and get your helper to measure down to where you would like your dress to finish.  

Alternatively you could measure a dress you already own that is the same length as you would like your new dress to be, measure from the shoulder seam to the hem (bottom) of the dress.

Mini skirt or dress length:

Again you can easily measure this length yourself in front of a mirror or have someone help you.

If you are measuring yourself in front of the mirror, measure from your waist down to where you would like your mini skirt/mini dress to finish.

Please remember when measuring your skirt/dress lengths that you want to ensure this length will not be too short for you at the back (especially when you bend over). If you have a larger bum this can affect the length of your dresses.

If you have someone to help measure you, hold the start of the tape measure to your waist and get your helper to measure down to where you would like your skirt/dress to finish.  

Alternatively you could measure a skirt you already own that is the same length as you would like your new skirt/dress to be, measure from the waist to the hem (bottom) of the skirt.

 

Midi skirt or dress length:

Again you can easily measure this length yourself in front of a mirror or have someone help you.

If you are measuring yourself in front of the mirror, measure from your waist down to where you would like your midi skirt/midi dress to finish.

Please remember when measuring your skirt/dress lengths that if you have a larger bum this can affect the length of your dresses.

If you have someone to help measure you, hold the start of the tape measure to your waist and get your helper to measure down to where you would like your skirt/dress to finish.  

Alternatively you could measure a skirt you already own that is the same length as you would like your new skirt/dress to be, measure from the waist to the hem (bottom) of the skirt.
