A dress maker is the best person to get yourself measured by as they will know what to measure and where.

You should also try to get a picture of the dress modelled by someone your size. A dress can look very different on a tall model when compared to how it looks on an averaged sized woman with the proper curves.

This will flatter you best and make you feel beautiful.
