Measuring Guide

A perfect-fitting dress starts with perfect measurements. Before ordering a made-to-measure dress from MiamaStore.com, we strongly encourage finding a professional local tailor who can help you measure accurately. Here, we'll show you which measurements are needed and how to correctly take them. Warning: measuring yourself at home is trickier than you think! For best results, always have your measurements taken by a professional local tailor.
