Measuring for Costumes
Skater’s measurements are required at the time of registration.
- We recommend that you print the Costume Measurement Worksheet to use before starting registration.
- Please measure carefully according to the instructions on the worksheet.
Key Factors in Measuring
- If your skater is still growing, remember it is almost three months before the show.
- It is much easier to alter a costume that is too big than try to fix a costume that is too small.
- We cannot return costumes for a different size. It takes 10-12 weeks to receive costumes.
- Skaters are responsible for accurate measurements.
- Costumes will be ordered according to the measurements you provide.
- If you have questions about your measurements, please email Jackie Woodland at email@example.com
Costume Fees are included as part of Ice Show Registration Fees.
- Registration will not be complete and your costume will not be ordered without all measurements and volunteer preferences filled in on the registration form
- Tights and other accessories may be required for some costumes. The cost for these items is not included in the registration fee. You will be notified as to what kind of tights and/or accessories are required as soon as costume information is finalized by the Costume Mistress.
- Costume pick-up will take place during regular Learn to Skate class times after costumes arrive, usually early November. You will be notified via email as to when your skater’s costumes will be available for pick-up.
- Skaters are responsible for any costume size alterations that may be required.
- Changes to the design of a costume will be made only at the direction of the Costume Mistress and Show Director.
- All costumes and accessories must be worn as directed by the Costume Mistress and Show Director.
Costume Measurement Worksheet
The following information is available on the Costume Measurement Worksheet. We recommend that you print this worksheet to use before starting the registration process.
- Use a cloth or plastic (flexible) measuring tape.
- It is best if skater does not try to measure him or herself
- The skater should be wearing a leotard, swimsuit or undergarments, not street clothes.
- Girth measurements are usually the deciding factor when there are conflicting measurements.
- Please remember skaters and/or parents are responsible for measuring accurately.
- If you have questions, email Jackie Woodland at firstname.lastname@example.org and wait for clarification prior to completing the form.
Chest: With arms relaxed down at sides, measure around the fullest part of the chest, keeping tape measure parallel to the floor.
Waist: Measure around the natural waistline, the narrowest part of the upper body (not over shirt or pants)
Hips: Measure around fullest part of the lower body, keeping tape straight and parallel to the floor.
Girth: Measure from the center of one shoulder, down the front through crotch and back to starting point. This is the most important measurement in determining costume size.
