A few tips for measuring yourself:
*You can get a flexible measuring tape at any fabric store and some grocery stores.
*Make sure to measure around the fullest part of your bust. Keep the tape level to the floor to get an accurate number. It's easy to let the tape slip down your back if you don't notice, giving you too small a number.
*Your waist is the smallest part of your torso. It's where you bend to the side when you sing "I'm a Little Teapot." Typically this is right above your belly button. Make sure you're leaving enough room to breathe (& eat) here!
*Measure your hips at the fullest point. For most people this is lower than your hip bones. Most of the clothing Mallory makes has a flared skirt. Keep in mind the fuller the skirt looks the more you can cheat the hip measurement to match your top measurements if you are pear shaped.
