Size Charts & How to Measure

FOR ADULTS:

Most Lanico dresses come in standard UK sizes 8-22, if you don't think our standard size will suit your figure, simply use our 'Tailor Made' service.


How to take your measurements?

 It's easier than you think!

Getting started: Place the tape over your underwear, keep the tape comfortably loose, NOT too loose! Also make sure the tape is levelled from the front to the back. If you fall in between sizes, always go for the next size (if you consider ordering standard size). 


1. Bust: Place the tape around the fullest part of your bust. Follow the back of your bra strap to keep the tape levelled. (Keep your arms relaxed!). Please note, bust size is not your bra size. 


2. Waist
: Measure around the smallest part of your natural waist line.

3. Hips: Stand with your feet together then measure around the fullest part of your hips. If you have bigger thighs than hips, simply take your thigh measurement in same way as you measure your hips, and then inform us. Please leave approximately 1-2'' additional room for sitting.
 

Length: We'll break down your length measurements into 2 in order to know where your waistline will be. 

4. Shoulder-Waist: Measure the length from the middle of your shoulder, passing the nipple, to the waistline.
 

5. Waist-Hem: Measure from your waistline (the same place where you stopped last time) to hem. The tape should be kept tight when following the body shape. Remember to take the measurements with the shoes you will be wearing or a similar size heels if you choose a full length dress. 

6. Underarm-Hem(Optional): Place your tape under your armpit, where the bra line is(usually approximately 1.5 inches below your armpits), keep your arm relaxed, follow the SIDE of your body shape and go down to the hem. Don't forget to include the shoes. This is optional but will make length measurements more accurate. 
 

 7Shoulder Width(Optional): Measure from the back, the distance between the shoulder seams of your blouse. Usually we do not need these measurements for strapless dresses. 


FOR FLOWER GIRLS AND JUNIORS:

Lanico flower girl dresses and junior dresses come in kid's size 2-12 - tailor made is avaliable for any size.
