General measurements

To ensure the perfect outfit, please provide Gaia with the following essential measurements: 

  • Chest
  • Waist

  • Height

Detailed instructions on how to measure:

1. Chest:

NOTE: If your garment will be worn with a bra, please take your chest measurements while wearing a bra for the most accurate results.

2. Waist:

- Wrap the tape measure at your navel and circle it around your waist, ensuring it is snug but not too tight.

- Locate the fullest part of your hips, typically around the widest point of your buttocks. 

- Wrap the measuring tape around this area, ensuring it is parallel to the ground and snug but not too tight.
