Submit your measurements
Accurate measurements are essential for the creation of a properly fitting corset that is both flattering and comfortable. It is extremely difficult to take accurate measurements on your own, so please ask a trusted friend or family member, or a professional seamstress or tailor to help you if possible.
PLEASE FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS PRECISELY FOR BEST RESULTS.
- When you take your measurements, wear a well fitting, unpadded, supportive bra, a tight fitting t-shirt or leotard and a pair of leggins or a stretchy skirt - do not wear tight jeans or anything which may cause a 'bulge' at the hips or waist, as this will give inaccurate measurements.
- Tie a ribbon/tape or elastic around your waist tightly - so that it stays in place, but not so tight as to cut off your circulation!. Wiggle and jiggle about a little until the string settles into a position. This is your natural waist and the point from where many measurements will start and finish. Leave the string in place at all times during measuring. The waist tape and the side seams of your tshirt/leotard will also provide many important reference points.
- Stand up straight with feet a hips width apart and arms by your side. Make sure you are standing up straight as slouching can affect measurements quite drastically.
- When taking measurements the tape measure should be snug but not constricting. Do not measure over fingers or thumbs and when measuring the bust, do not put your arms in the air - keep your arms by your side.
- Please be honest and accurate with measurements - vanity measuring or second guessing will cause problems and extra fitting time which will incur extra expense and probably delays - Your true measurements really will give the best results - trust me on this.
Optional: If you would like to submit photographs with your measurements they will help me to understand your build and body shape. Take pictures at the same time as measuring, of front, back and side torso.
Thank you for submitting your measurements. If I have any queries I will let you know. If not I will get to work on them and keep you informed of progress via email. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch too.
