How to get your body measurements?
When taking these measurements, be sure to use a cloth measuring tape. This will ensure that you’re measuring your body accurately. When you circle your bust, waist or hips, the tape is level and neither too tight or too loose. Also, measure yourself on your bare skin, nor over clothes.
Place one end of the tape measure at the fullest part of your bust and across your back. Keeping the tape parallel to the floor.

Place one end of the tape measure at the fullest part of your thigh from front to back and then around to the front. Keeping the tape parallel to the floor.
