Need more help with measurements?
- Underbust circumference – (measure horizontally at the line marked A).
This is around your ribcage, about the same height as your bra band.
- Waist circumference – (measure horizontally at B).
This is your natural waist (not desired one), typically measured 1 inch or so above your belly button.
- High hip circumference – (measure horizontally at C)
This is around the iliac crest (“wings” of your hipbones) not around your bum! If your measuring tape crosses your butt crack, you are probably measuring too low.
Your high hip is where low-rise jeans sit, or around the height of your Venus dimples, if you have them. It’s usually about 4-5 inches down from your waistline.
Your “full hips” would usually be 7-9 inches below the waistline (this measurement is not needed).
- Torso length – while sitting down on a firm chair or bench, with a straight back and good posture, please measure vertically from under one breast (choose one) down to your “thighbrow”, the crease where your lap starts (where your leg meets your trunk). In the diagram you can see that it’s not in the center front, but slightly offset under one breast.
If your torso measures less than 8 inches long,
95% of the time, it was measured wrong!
Please use the following helpful checklist when troubleshooting your vertical torso length:
- Are you sitting on a hard, flat surface, like a wooden chair or bench, and not on a soft surface like a couch/ bed?
- Are you sitting with as straight a posture as possible, and not hunching or leaning forward to read the number on the measuring tape?
- If you wear a bra, are you wearing one that fits well and the underwire is sitting directly underneath the breast? (A sagging underwire can artificially make the breast seem to start lower down and make the torso look shorter).
- If you measure whilst standing up in front of a mirror (again from under the breast, down to where your lap would start (the crease where your leg meets your torso)), do you still measure the same torso length as when you were sitting down?
And if you still seem to measure anything less than about 8 inches in length:
- Are you under 5 feet (152 cm) tall in stature?
- Do you have any history of spinal curvature, like scoliosis or lumbar lordosis?
- If either of these are true, please be sure to state this in your contact form.
If you are ordering/ inquiring about an overbust corset, I will also need:
- Bust circumference – This is different to your bra size. Measure around the fullest part of your bust or chest, wearing a supportive but unpadded bra. “Squished bust” is best (e.g. from a high-compression sports bra).
Unfortunately at this time, custom corsets are not available through this website.
