How to take the Hollow to Hem Measurement

The Hollow to Hem measurement determines a specific length for the gown to be made. This measurement is suggested for heights under or over 5’8”. It is very important to wear the exact undergarments, slip, and shoes as the day of the wedding or event as this will affect the accuracy of the measurement. When selecting Hollow to Hem on the order form, please indicate the measurement in the space provided. Provide the measurement in whole inches. Half inches are not accepted.

· Stand straight and face forward with your arms at your sides.

· Place the tape measure ¼” below the hollow or depression of your neck and measure to the waist following the shape of your body.

· Measure from the waist to where you want the finished hem to fall following the shape of the slip.

· Place the measuring tape ¼” below the hollow of the neck and measure to the approximate finished hem. If this measurement does not equal the total of the previous two measurements, repeat all three measurements until the measurements agree.
