The Magic of the Princess Line

Do you feel like royalty when you slip on a garment with a princess seam? The princess line runs along the front and back, halfway between your shoulder and neck, down to halfway between your side and center. This line also identifies where waist darts typically go.

Princess seams bring to mind wedding gowns and other special-occasion garments. But they're great for everyday dressing too. 

Check out this video on how to find and measure your princess line.
