How to Measure


The Dark Pony Designs Measurement/Size Guide

To measure your waist it is best to use a sewing measuring tape (flexible usually plastic) but if you don't have that available you can always use string or yarn and then measure that length against a regular metal contractors measuring tape.

*Waist- always measure at your true waist just above your belly button.

*Bust- Bra Size is usually best - keep in mind that if you are ordering a waist length bustier the waist will always be smaller than the bust measurement.

*Hips- the largest point below the belly button

Length- starting from your true waist measure down to where you would like the hem (bottom) of the dress or skirt to fall.
Typically all lengths above the knee are called MINI
All lengths to the knee are called MIDI/KNEE LENGTH
All lengths from the mid calf to ankle are called TEA LENGTH/COCKTAIL LENGTH
All lengths below the ankle are MAXI/FLOOR LENGTH

Remember when you are ordering a floor length garment to wear the shoes you will be wearing with your ensemble when you are measuring.
