The Miss Patina Guide to taking your Measurements

Online shopping can be so much fun, but not when you open your parcel to find the item is too big or too small! At Miss Patina we list  all the necessary measurements for each and every item,  so you may be sure your that your new dress will fit you perfectly.

To ensure you pick the best size for you we have a little Vine Guide on on how to take your measurements…

How to take the following measurements,

Bust – You will need to measure the circumference of your chest. Place one end of the tape measure at the fullest part of your bust then, pass the tape under your armpits and across your shoulder blades back to the front again.

Waist – To take your waist measurement we recommend taking your measurement at your natural waistline,  to get this right you will need to measure above your belly button and below your rib cage.

Item Length – The length of each dress is given in centimetres. To work out where the dress will fall on you we recommend using a marker of some sort (we used a sticker) to mark the total length on a tape measure. Place the tape measure on your shoulder at the nape of your neck then let the tape measure fall.

Remember when taking body measurements to not pull too tightly as this will not be accurate!

Happy Shopping! Love from Team Miss Patina x
