Sizing & Fit
The final fit of your garments depends upon the accuracy of the measurements that you provide. Hence it is extremely important to send the right dimensions. Here are general guidelines for taking the measurements with higher accuracy.
If possible, stand in front of the mirror (so you too can monitor the process) or ask help of someone. stand straight, comfortable, don't suck in your stomach, keep arms hanging loose on sides, may tie your hair up. we prefer measurements taken by using inch scale of measuring tap, holding snuggly over the body, not too tight or too loose.
Wear a similar garment- if you’re taking measurement for saree blouse, then it is better to wear a thin dress or saree blouse with well fitting, regular bra underneath while taking measurements.
Know your comfort level- some prefer loose fitted garments while some prefer extremely tight ones. Keep a margin with the measure tape accordingly. Please find the measurement guide below to choose the size that is closest to you.
As you follow the above guidelines and steps properly, your measurement details will be accurate which will reflect on the final fit of your outfit. Still, if you get stuck up with the dimensions then it is better to call the customer care at +1 (630) 407 7419and get your doubt sorted.

This measurement has to be taken from the back side of your neck, from one edge of the shoulder to another. Keep your body straight, do not bend or shrink in your shoulders while measurement being taken.

When you start to zipper the dress, make sure that there are no hanger straps and/or strings in the zipper's way.
You can do one of two things:
You can attach the hook-n-eye first and start to zipper
Or you can zipper it up and then attach the hook-n-eye
