How to measure a dress :

Lay garment flat.  Measure underarm to underarm and double.  This is the bust measurement.  Some dresses will have more of a cup shape, particularly strapless dresses.  Those you will want to measure inside, following into the cup to get a more accurate measurement.  Do the same at the waist and hips, while garment is flat.  Hips are usually 6″ down from natural waist, or close to the bottom of a back zipper.  Also measure shoulders, sleeve, bodice length and arm opening.
