How to Measure for custom fit:
To get perfect fitting dress, you can help us out by giving your accurate measurements.

To measure yourself, please follow the below steps:


Not your bra size! But you must wear a bra when taking this measuring. Take the tape around your back and bring it across the fullest part of your bust.


This is the smallest part of your waist. Typically it's an inch or so above belly button.


This is the widest part of your hips, across the hipbone. Measurement is taken approximately 7 inches below the natural waistline.

Dress Length:

Measure from the shoulder point, and take the tape through the bust point, then down till the length as per your design.

Arm Hole:

Take the tape around the shoulder. This measurement gives the size of the sleeve hole that you are comfortable wearing.

Arm Round:

Take the tape around at the end of the sleeve length as per your design.

Sleeve Length:

Take the tape along the arm relaxed down at your sides till the required measurement as per the design Example: Short Sleeves, Elbow lenght, 3/4th, Sleeves and Full sleeves.

Blouse Length:

Measure from the top of your shoulder over your bust straight down to the ribbon on your waist

Neck Round:
