If possible, get a friend to help. With arms relaxed at your sides, measure the fullest part of your bust, keeping the tape parallel to the floor.
Measure around your natural waist (bend sideways - the crease is it) Recommendation: keep one finger between the tape and your body.
Stand with your heels together, and measure around the fullest part of your hips, keeping the tape parallel to the floor.
Shoulder widths are shorter. Have a helping hand hold the beginning of the tape firmly against one side of the shoulder, perpendicular to the shoulder. Wrap the tape firmly across the bust and back of the shoulder blades so that the tape meets the first point. Where the beginning of tape hits on the tape is your measurement.
Stand in stocking feet with your feet slightly apart and your back to a wall. Measure from the floor to the top of your head. Your height will determine whether you are PETITE, REGULAR, or TALL.
