Measuring a bust size requires wrapping a tape measure around the fullest part of the bust for the initial size and measuring just above and just below the bust makes for a more accurate measurement. Measure a bust size for fitted clothing with a demonstration from a self-taught seamstress in this free video on sewing.
Hi, I'm Deborah DeMirza and I'm at Deluxe a resale clothing boutique in Eugene, Oregon, and today I'm going to show you how to measure your bust size. So what you do is you take your tape measure and you put it around the fullest part of your bust and you take that measurement. If you're measuring for a fitted dress, you want to also take the measurement above your bust line right under your arms and see what that measurement is and also if it's going to be fitted below the bust, you can measure right at that point below your bust. So you have three measurements, but when somebody says to measure your bust line, it's usually up in the back so that it's even all the way around in the fullest part of your bust and that's how you measure your bust size.
