How To Measure Yourself

You may want some help when doing this.

Height

1. Stand straight with your feet together

2. Start at the top of your head and pull the measuring tape down to the floor (you may need some help with this)

3. Don’t wear shoes

Waist

1. Your waist is usually found 1inch above your bellybutton

2. Wrap the measuring tape around your waist, not so tight so allowing you to breathe comfortably

Hips

1. Your hips are generally about 7” below your waist (depending on your size)

2. Looking in a mirror, find the widest part of your hips

3. The measuring tape should brush across both of your hipbones

Shoulder

1. You start by measuring at the back, from one edge of the shoulder socket to the next shoulder socket

Bust

1. Relax your arms

2. Keep your bra on, as you’re not measuring your bra size

3. Pull the tape around the back across the shoulder blades, then under your arms and across the fullest part of your bust – take measurement

Dress Etiquette Tips for Women

* Remember, wear clothes that suit your body shape.

Shoulders: Broader shoulders should try and avoid shoulder pads and cap sleeves.

Legs: If you’re wider around your thighs, try to avoid tight-fitting trousers.

Shoes: It’s very important that the shoes fit you. Otherwise you’ll incur a lot of unwanted pain.

Painted toes: If you’re wearing open toe shoes, remember people see your feet, so make sure they’re painted!

Open-toe shoes: Not to be worn with nude tights. Wear a closed toe shoe if you must wear tights.

Hems: Make sure the hem is neat and there aren’t any stray stands. This can look messy.

Boobs or Legs?: You either opt to show your legs off or flaunt your chest, but it’s never both.

Low-cut Tops: It’s not very lady like to show too much of your chest, it’s distracting and can make people feel uneasy also.

Brightly Coloured Bras: Only should be worn in the right situation, not at work under a sheer shirt.

VPL: If you’re not a fan of the G-String, and would prefer slightly bigger smalls, but worry about showing your VPL. Why not opt for seamless knickers, they’re perfect for wearing under most garments and very comfortable too.

Animal Print: Can look cheap and dated. If you insist on wearing it, then make sure it’s strictly keep to one piece on your person at a time.
