It is important to measure yourself in the correct way. Stand straight in front of the mirror, and start with the waist measurement first. Wrap the tape measure around the waist just above the navel. Measure your hips at the thickest part of your hips, just below your hip bones. The bust is also measured around the fullest part of the chest. You can give your mother or a friend to measure your shoulders, but if you want to do it, wrap the tailor's tape around the top of the shoulder at the widest point above the shoulder blade.
