Measurements

Accurate measurements are very important to make sure we produce a garment with the Perfect Fit for you. Herefore we have prepared the "ESTA DIVA Measurement Image" and our "How-To-Measure-Guide" for your assistance when taking your measurements. Please let us know your personal measurements, which we need for tailoring your dance dress or costume.


How-To-Measure-Guide

We recommend you to wear tight clothes while measuring and have somebody else to take your measurements. Please use a non-stretch dress measure tape. While measuring the tape should not be pulled completely tight. Please input your measurements in centimeters (cm). Moreover, it is important that you review all your measurements to ensure that they are correct.

While measuring, stand straight with your heels together and arms down at your sides.

1. Full Bust:
Put the tape around your fullest part of your chest. Follow back of your bra strap to keep the tape level.

2. Under Bust:
Place the measuring tape underneath your bust.

3. Waist
Stand straight and keep your heels together. Place your hands at your natural waistline. This is where the tape should be positioned. Stand with your stomach at its natural position. Place the measuring tape around your natural waist.
