Here's a list of the measurements I had to get:
Shoulder - measure from tip to tip
Bust - place tape measure under the arms, take tape around the back and get measurement at fullest part of the bust.
Bust point - shoulder tip to middle of bust.
Bust distance - distance based on the two bust middles
Waist line - this is easy ;)
Figure - start at shoulder, have tape go over middle of bust and end at navel
Arm hole - have tape go around the armpit
Hips 1 - have tape go around about 3" below your waist
Hips 2 - have tape go around approximately 7" below your waist (middle of your behind)
Front deep - shoulder tip to waist line (just straight down)
Back deep - should tip to waist line from the back (just straight down)
Round under bust - have tape go around under the bust
Round under arm - have tape go around the arm (at the armpit area)
From shoulder to under bust - measure from shoulder tip to under the bust (go over middle of bust)
Full length - shoulder tip to heel
So these terms came from our mananahi.
