Since 1987, Vero Moda has been offering a variety of women’s clothing pieces—from dresses and jumpsuits to basics like shirts, jeans and jackets.

Now, you can shop Vero Moda pieces on eBay but before you do, check out these tips on how to properly measure yourself.

When measuring your waist, use the tape measure as you would a belt, circling it around your natural waistline. Your natural waist is located below the rib cage and above the belly button. Avoid sucking your stomach in to get a more accurate measurement.

For the chest, you should place one end of the tape at the fullest part of your bust and then wrap it around. Make sure it goes around your arm pits and shoulder blades, then back to the front. The tape measure should be parallel to the floor.

To measure the hips, wrap the tape around the fullest part, going over your backside. Make sure it is around the largest part of your rear. It is important to level the tape so do this in front of a mirror or call a friend for assistance.

For the upper arm, find the widest part and wrap the tape from front to back, making sure to go back to the start point.

In some cases, you’ll also need to measure the length of the sleeves. This is easier to do with a friend. Start by placing your hand on your hip, bending your arm to a 90-degree angle. Your friend should measure from the centre of the back, across the shoulder, down to the elbow and then to the wrist. Sleeve sizes are usually whole numbers so round it up as necessary.

Before adding to cart, always check the size chart because the sizes can vary depending on various factors. Check out eBay for Vero Moda dresses, tops and other women’s clothing.
