Do you ever look at lingerie online only to be confused by sizing, realising you need to know your measurements? No stress we'll whip through how to measure yourself for lingerie - once you know, you know.
When it comes to finding the perfect lingerie fit, the first step is mastering the art of self-measurement. We know it's a super common question, so let's break it down. Here's your comprehensive guide to measuring yourself for a flawless fit that celebrates your unique silhouette.
What You Need: Before you start, gather your tools. For accurate measurements, you'll need:
- Tight-Fitting Clothing: Opt for something snug to your body, avoiding thick fabrics and padded bras. This ensures precision in capturing your natural contours.
- Flexible Measuring Tape: The key to a seamless measurement process. Its flexibility allows you to effortlessly reach that crucial cross point and obtain accurate readings.
How to Measure:
- Bust: Begin by wrapping the measuring tape around the fullest part of your bust, ensuring it sits parallel to the ground. This is your bust measurement.
- Underbust: Slide the tape around your ribcage, just beneath your bust. Make sure it's snug but not too tight; this is your underbust measurement.
- Waist: Locate the narrowest part of your waist, usually an inch or two above your belly button. Wrap the tape around and voilà – your waist measurement.
- Hips: Find the widest part of your hips, often around the hip bone. Wrap the tape, and there you have it – your hip measurement.
- Measure yourself in front of a mirror for better accuracy.
- Ensure the measuring tape lies flat against your skin without digging in.
