Choose fabric-to-measurement guideIf all these steps sound like a lot of work, don’t worry – we’ve got a handy guide to help you get started.1 – Choose the clothing brandYou’ll need to check the website of the brand you want to buy from before you start.
The best place to look is www.ladyandman.com, which shows which brands are still available in your country and the price of each item.2 – Choose coloursThe brand you choose should be one that you like and that is compatible with your measurements.
For example, a black shirt should fit you for a 34A, but a grey shirt should be a size large.
Choose your fabric- to-measuredment guideYou can usually find out the sizing of your items using the fabric-measuring guide.
The guide is helpful to get an idea of how much your fabric will stretch, which is how much the fabric will need to stretch to accommodate your waistline.
You can also find out how much fabric is needed for your waist.4 – Choose fabricsThe best fabric to use is cotton, which will give you the longest length of fabric and will give the best support.
You’ll need a size 6, 6, or 8 cotton shirt for a size 34A or 36A, a size 10 cotton shirt or 10 cotton jeans for a 36B, and a size 11 cotton shirt and a 10 cotton pants for a 38B.5 – Measure your waistTo measure your waist, measure around your widest point and the lowest point of your torso.
This is called your “natural waistline”.
The lower you measure the more support you need.
The lower your natural waistline, the more you’ll need.
To find your natural hip line, find your lowest point at the fullest point of the thigh and then trace it down to the fullest part of your thigh.6 – Measure the length of your fabricThe best way to measure the length is to measure from the top of the armhole to the bottom of the shoulder blades.
To determine how much material your fabric should stretch, measure your fabric with a measuring tape, as shown above.7 – Measure how much you needFor example, if you’re wearing a 32A cotton shirt, you’ll want to measure around 5cm (2.8 inches) from the bottom.
This would put you at your natural “natural” waistline of 33C, or 5cm in the middle of your arms.
You’d need to measure 5cm for a 32B cotton shirt.8 – Measure for your bustSize depends on the shape of your waist: a 32D bust might need around 4cm (1.9 inches) of fabric, while a 32E bust would need 8cm (20.4 inches).9 – Measure and tapeYour waistline is the measurement of the widest part of the fabric that stretches.
To measure this, measure from your natural hips, measuring from your “curvature point”.
This is usually your “sleeve” area, which should be around your mid-thigh.
To know how much to tape, you can use a measuring spool, which measures from your waist to your fullest part.10 – Measure again and tapeA measurement spool is a special piece of fabric that you can buy at a shop.
It measures from the fullest of your natural crotch to the shortest of your crotch, which means that the spool measures around the fullest area of your tummy.
You also need to tape it, as seen below:You’ll want your spool to be tapered to fit your bust.
To tape it securely, attach a long straight piece of tape around the spindle.
You need to wrap it around your waist as well, as the tape will keep it secure.
You might need to use a fabric brush to gently rub the tape around your belly, so that it’s smooth and smooth.
Once you’ve measured, you need to add the size of your garment.
You usually want to add a size if you plan to wear the garment a lot or it’s something you like to wear, or if you want the garment to be worn once a week.
For some people, the size will be a matter of preference, as others like a specific fit.
To do this, you’re likely to want to go into the garment shop to check it’s correct, or at least check the measurements that have already been taken.
If you’re not sure, just ask.
There will usually be a price on the spools and a price list on the back of the sponges.
You may also need a friend to help with the tape if you have to go to the shop for an appointment.
The amount of tape you need will depend on your
