How to measure your body correctly?
- The best way to find out the collar size is to use a so-called tailor's tape measure. Stand up straight and put the tape measure around your neck, preferably at the level of the Adam's apple. Make sure that the tape measure is continuous and smooth.
- The bust size is best measured at the widest part of the chest, at the level of the nipples. Again, stand straight and upright and put the tape measure around you. Make sure that the tape measure lies smoothly.
- The waist size is measured at the narrowest part of the torso. Stand upright and put the tape measure around you. Make sure that the tape measure lies smoothly.
Tip: If you don't have a tailor's tape measure, you can also simply use a string by placing it around the desired area just like a tape measure and marking the measured width on the string. You can then use a ruler to measure your width from the beginning of the string to the marked point.
