Measurement Guide for Bridal Tops

Please make sure that whoever takes your measurements read the instructions below or the measurements can be wrong.  Thank you!

Remember, it’s easier to cut a bridal top down than to try to lose that last inch, especially with all the goodies at the parties and showers!  We recommend you have a professional tailor who will alter/fit your bridal top to take your measurements for you.  DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TAKE YOUR OWN MEASUREMENTS - THEY WILL BE WRONG!  Use a vinyl tape-measure; fabric ones tend to stretch over time and your bridal top will be ordered too small. When you measure, wear a similar bra or bustier.  Our production team may not need all these measurements, but it's good to have them all, just in case.
