Custom Order Measurement Guidelines

For ALL Measurements we suggest getting another person to help you. It is very hard to get proper measurements alone.

Salwar Kameez Measurements:

  1. Bust: measurement should be taken around fullest part of breasts with bra on and tightly supported.
  2. Upper arm: this needs to be the circumference of the largest part of your upper arm
  3. Sleeve Length: Measure from your shoulder down to the place you would like your sleeve to end. We will get this as close to your measurement as possible.
  4. Shoulders: This should be done with your shoulders as straight as possible from the outside of one to the outside of the other.
  5. Waist: Right above your belly button, measure around your entire stomach.
  6. Hips: Measure around the fullest part of your hips.
  7. Length of kameez (blouse): From your shoulder measure to the length you would like your blouse to fall to, traditionally this is to below the knee, however you can make it as short or as long as you like.
  8. Length of salwar(pants): Measure from your waist (or the place you want your salwar waist to sit) to below your ankle. (Your entire ankle should be covered)
  9. Length of Waist: This is a tricky measurement.T he best way to do this is take a tape measure and position it at your belly button. Measure down to the inside of your thigh, about 2" below your private area. This is to make sure you get a proper fit in the tummy and bottom.
  10. Ankle Circumference: Measure around your entire ankle. This is the minimum for your salwar's ankles
  11. Drawstring or Elastic Waist: Drawstring waists are free and a drawstring (nale) is provided at no additional charge.
  12. With Duppatta or Without: Duppattas (long scarfs) are provided at no additional cost. Ends are sealed at no additional cost.
  13. Long Sleeves, Short Sleeves or 3/4 Sleeves: Please be sure to provide your measurements along with your choice.
  14. Loosing: Salwar Kameez suits usually come with 2" extra loosing in the bust unless otherwise noted. Example: Your bust measurement is 42", your suit's bust measurement will be 44" for synthetic and 44 1/2" for cotton. This results in a close fitting, tailored look. However, if you prefer a looser fit (more like a t-shirt) we suggest 3-4" loosing. We do not recommend more than 4" loosing in the bust.
  15. Any Special Needs? Please let us know if you have any special needs or wishes. We will gladly do our best to accommodate them.

Lehnga Choli Measurements:

  1. Bust: measurement should be taken around fullest part of breasts with bra on and tightly supported.
  2. Upper arm: this needs to be the circumference of the largest part of your upper arm
  3. Sleeve Length: Measure from your shoulder down to the place you would like your sleeve to end. We will get this as close to your measurement as possible.
  4. Shoulders: This should be done with your shoulders as straight as possible from the outside of one to the outside of the other.
  5. Waist: Right above your belly button, measure around your entire stomach.
  6. Hips: Measure around the fullest part of your hips.
  7. Length of choli (blouse): From your shoulder measure to the length you would like your blouse to fall to, traditionally this is right at the belly button or a little below, however you can make it as short or as long as you like.
  8. Length of lehnga(skirt): Measure from your Belly Button to your ankle. It is important to remember to wear the same shoes when measuring as you will wear with your lehnga. If that is not possible, wear shoes that are of the same height. If you are wearing a shoe with any heel at all, you might want to add additional inches to cover part of the shoe. Traditionally these suits are worn with the lehnga touching the ground and no shoe visible. However, this is not necessary today but you should try to get the lehnga as close to the ground as possible without dragging.
  9. Drawstring or Elastic Waist: Drawstring waists are free and a drawstring (nale) is provided at no additional charge. Elastic waists are an additional charge of $1-$2 depending on your size.
  10. With Duppatta or Without: Duppattas (long scarfs) are provided at no additional cost. Ends are sealed at no additional cost.
  11. Long Sleeves, Short Sleeves or 3/4 Sleeves: Please be sure to provide your measurements along with your choice.
  12. Loosing: Lehnga Choli  suits usually come with 2" extra loosing in the bust unless otherwise noted. Example: Your bust measurement is 42", your suit's bust measurement will be 44". This results in a close fitting, tailored look. However, if you prefer a looser fit (more like a t-shirt) we suggest 3-4" loosing. We do not recommend more than 4" loosing in the bust.
  13. Any Special Needs? Please let us know if you have any special needs or wishes. We will gladly do our best to accommodate them.
