How to Measure Yourself for a Quince Dress Step-By-Step

Jocelyn Pasillas

Are you planning on purchasing your dream Quince dress online?

In-store shopping for your quince dress can be a bit frustrating if you don’t see what you’re looking for. But everyone’s fear when buying online is the fitting.

We get it, online shopping can be risky, but we have the solution to your problem!

No need to worry with a basic step-by-step guide that can help you.

Here are the proper measuring tools needed: 

  • Measuring tape (inches side)
  • Pen and paper to write down measurements

(There’s no specific order on what to measure first, as long as you get all measurements down)

Steps:

  • Bust

The bust is not necessarily your bra size. Make sure to wrap the measuring tape around your fullest part of your bust. Also keep the measuring tape as parallel to the ground as possible and measure under your arms, not around them.

  • Waist

Your natural, slimmest part is about 1 inch above your belly button. Do not wrap the measuring tape to tight in order to allow for breathing space. You do not want your dress suffocating you!

Can’t seem to find your natural waist?

Bend over to one side, where your side creases is where your natural waist is at.

  • Height

For this step, you can get some help for accurate measurements. Make sure your barefooted. Measure from the top of your head to the floor.

  • Hip

Make sure that you’re not only measuring the front side, wrap the tape all around at the fullest part of your hips. Your hips are usually 7 inches below the natural waist

Things to consider:

  • When shopping online be sure to check out the online website’s measurement chart so you can have better understanding of what size suit you better.
  • Some websites encourage you to be barefoot and will add on about 5cm of your height, just in case you’re wearing heels.
  • Depending on the style of your dress there will be different kinds of measurements that may be needed.
