Accurate Measurement Guide for Dresses:

To ensure a perfect fit for your dress, focus on a few key measurements: your bust, waist, and hips. Start by wearing form-fitting clothing or undergarments that won't add bulk to your measurements. This will ensure the most accurate fit. Follow these steps:

  1. Waist MeasurementMeasure around the narrowest part of your waist, usually an inch or two above your belly button. Keep the measuring tape snug but comfortable.

  2. Bust and Hip Measurements: Measure around the fullest part of your bust, keeping the measuring tape parallel to the ground. Measure around the fullest part of your hips and buttocks. Again, ensure the measuring tape is parallel to the ground and not too tight.

     

  3. Record Measurements: Jot down these measurements for reference when comparing with the size chart.

Consider Height:

Dress designs typically account for hemming to match your height. If you're taller and plan to wear heels, you can add up to 4 inches in length. For specifics on pricing and production time, contact our team.

Selecting the Right Size:

To find your ideal size, align your measurements with our sizing guide. Remember, formal wear might require adjustments due to intricate designs and non-stretch fabrics. If you fall between sizes, sizing up is often recommended. For personalised advice, email us at hello@parisinthestrand.com with your measurements.

Example Scenario:

With a bust measurement of 101cm (between size 14/16), a waist of 87cm (size 16), and hips of 117cm (size 16), we recommend selecting size 16 and considering alterations for a better bust fit.

Important Note:

Our dresses adhere to standard size charts, but your dress might still need alterations upon arrival to achieve the perfect fit. Your satisfaction is our priority, and we're here to assist you in achieving a flawless look.
