Steps to take lingerie body measurement

Imagine you trying to build a house without accurate measurements, it would be a disaster, right? The same goes for lingerie! Without the right measurements, you could end up with bras that dig into your skin, panties that ride up, or bodysuits that pinch in all the wrong places. So, before you start shopping for your next lingerie set, it is important to take your body measurements and know your size. Lingerie comes in different sizes which range from sizes 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, and so on. Let’s walk you through the steps of taking body measurements for your lingerie. 

Step 1. Bust Measurement

To get an accurate bust measurement, stand up straight with your arms at your sides and wear a well-fitting bra.  Wrap the measuring tape around your bust, be sure it is parallel to the ground and not too tight or loose. Make sure the tape stays on your back to avoid altering the right measurement. Once you have the measurement, jot it down, you’ll need it to find your perfect bra size. 

Step 2. Underbust Measurement

To measure your underbust, stand up straight with your arms at your sides. Wrap the measuring tape around your ribcage, just below your bust, making sure it’s snug but not too tight. You want the tape to sit comfortably against your skin without digging in. Take a look in the mirror to ensure the tape is parallel to the ground and not riding up or down in the back. The underbust measurement is used to determine the band of your lingerie bra size. 

Step 3. Waist Measurement 

While measuring for the waist, you are required to stand in a position with your feet hip-width apart and your arms by your side. Wrap the measuring tape around the waist without inhaling a breath. Exhale your breath to give an accurate waist measurement. The measurement should be snug but not too tight. 

Step 4. Hip Measurement

Your hip is the fullest part of your buttocks and hips, so while taking the measurement wrap the tape in circumference around the hip. Move the tape slightly around the buttocks to get an accurate measurement of the hips. 

Behind every sexy and comfortable lingerie is an accurate body and size measurement. Keep in mind that lingerie is not only about looking good, it is about feeling good also. Ever tried taking your measurements yourself? Engage us in the comments section below.
