TAKE YOUR MEASUREMENTS


PLEASE NOTE

 

To accurately manufacture your garment, your BODY MEASUREMENTS (with underwear) are needed.

Please do not add any ease to your measurements. The measuring tape should be neither too loose nor too tight, just fitted. The descriptions and pictures provided will guide you through the process.

 

 

YOU NEED

 

* a flexible measuring tape

* recommendation: get help from another person, as this makes it easier to make exact measurements, a mirror can also be helpful if you measure alone

 

 

RECOMMENDATIONS

 

* Its is recommended to fill in this form on a desktop and not via a mobile phone for a better overview of the pictures and corresponding descriptions.

* Padded bras, a corset or shapewear and similar can make a huge difference. So please make sure to measure your body with the underwear you most likely will wear under the ordered garment.

* Advice: As many measurements are based on your waistline, it makes it easier when you pull a string around your natural waistline that will mark this line for all other corresponding measurements.

 

 

In case a measurement seems to be wrong or unrealistic you will be contacted by Prettie Lanes. Please note, Prettie Lanes can not take any responsibility for measurements taken inaccurately.

SPECIAL REMARKS ABOUT THE FIT

 

loose   =   very comfortable fit with a lot of ease to move


fitted   =   standard choice if you do not fill out this field. A close fit with ease to move but wonderfully

             'hugging your curves', according to the design.


tight    =  measurement of the finished garment equals your body measurement (no ease added).
