To take accurate body measurements you will require a non-stretchable measuring tape, pen and paper to note down the measurements, and someone who can help take the measurements. It is important to wear a snug pant and a T-shirt that fits you nicely without any layers of clothing over it. Stand straight and relaxed and avoid tucking in or pushing out your tummy.
Measure the circumference of the chest by wrapping the measuring tape around the fullest part of the chest or bust. To ensure that the measurements are precise make sure that the tape is levelled all the way round the chest.
Measure the circumference of your natural waist. Natural waist: Natural waist line is the smaller area of the waist and is usually an inch or to above the belly button. You can also locate it easily by bending towards one side.
Measure the circumference of your lower waist. Lower waist: Contrasting to the natural waist, the lower waist is the widest part of the waist and is usually at the belly button or just below it.
You can measure the hips by measuring the circumference around the fullest part of your hips.
To measure your sleeve, place the tape at the edge of your shoulder and guide it all the way down ending at your wrist at the length you desire.
To measure your shoulders, place the tape at the edge of the left shoulder across the back of the neck and continue it to the edge of the right shoulder.
