Before you begin
Measurement instructions are different for each garment so please make sure you are reading the instructions specific to sari blouse, salwar/churidar, and lehenga.
What you'll need
Soft tape measure
Print out of measurement form
When taking measurements the tape should be held flat against the body; it should be held snug enough so not to droop, but never so tight as to feel restrictive. It is best to be measured wearing the same undergarments, slip, strapless bra, body shaper you’ll be wearing the day of the wedding or event. If you don’t have them yet, wear the closest approximation. Please measure to the closest half inch.
We strongly recommend having your measurements taken by a professional seamstress. If you cannot get professional measurement, we strongly advise that you have someone else take the measurements for you.
