It is recommended to fill out this form via a desktop/Computer (not mobile phone). It makes it easier because the descriptions and corresponding illustrations are organized horizontally to keep the best overview of what to submit.
‚Franziska Schlupski' manufactures garments for ladies of all shapes and sizes. Some measurements are obligatory (marked with an asterisk) and others are optional. However, the more measurements you provide, the more accurate is the final fit. The measurements you send will be securely stored in your personal client folder so you don't have to re-measure for future orders (unless your measurements changed).
To accurately manufacture your garment, your BODY MEASUREMENTS are needed (with underwear your are most likely wearing under the ordered garment). Please do not add any ease to your measurements. The measuring tape should be not too loose nor too tight, just fitted. The descriptions and pictures provided will guide you through the process that only takes around 10 minutes. In case a measurement seems to be unrealistic you will be contacted by email to double check on that.
SPECIAL REMARKS ABOUT THE FIT
fitted = Standard choice if you do not fill out this field. A close fit with ease to move but wonderfully 'hugging your curves', according to the design.
tight = Measurement of the finished garment equals your body measurements (no ease added). Ladies tend to love this fit especially for strapless gowns.
very tight =Measurements of the finished garment are slightly less than your body measurements (negative ease added). Popular for ladies who like a very snug fit especially at the waist (hourglass silhouette). Not recommended for your bust measurement.
Padded bras, a corset or shapewear and similar can make a huge difference. So please make sure to measure your body with the underwear you most likely will wear under the ordered garment. As many measurements are based on your waistline, you might want to pull a string around your natural waistline that will mark this line for all other corresponding measurements.
A flexible measuring tape. Getting help from another person or using a mirror can be helpful to take accurate measurements. Please note, 'Franziska Schlupski' can not take any responsibility for measurements taken inaccurately.
