Measuring Guide

Please read carefully

  • Measurements should be taken while wearing a leotard or underwear, never over outdoor wear.
  • Please take all measurements in inches
  • Be sure that the hip measurement is around the fullest part of the bottom, NOT around the hip bones
  • Girth should be a loop around the entire body.  
  • With the dancer standing at their tallest, measure from the shoulder, past the crotch and back up to the same shoulder
  • When measuring skirts for lyrical dresses etc., please measure from the waist to your desired length
