B-BUST- This is not your bra size. Wrap a measuring tape around your body at the fullest part of your bust. Be sure your arms at your side. Consider if your clothing will have built-in padding. If you are wearing undergarments under your clothing, make sure to measure with that on your body.

H-HIP- Find the widest part of your hips. Usually about 7” below natural waist. Tape should brush across both hipbones.

S-SHOULDER- Measure the length across left shoulder, back and right shoulder.
L-LENGTH- Measure length of clothes.
SL-SKIRT LENGTH- Measure length of skirt
