Made to Your Measurements

The Beauty of a Perfect Fit

When it comes to finding the perfect sofa, one size definitely does not fit all. That’s why at, we’ve made it our mission to create custom sofas that are tailored to your unique measurements and preferences. No more settling for a generic, off-the-rack option that leaves you feeling like a square peg in a round hole. With our made-to-measure approach, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy a piece of furniture that was quite literally made just for you.

Now, I know what you’re thinking – measuring myself for a sofa? That sounds about as fun as trying on a million pairs of jeans until I find the elusive perfect fit. But trust me, it’s a game-changer. Think of it this way: would you rather settle for a sofa that’s just “close enough,” or one that hugs your curves in all the right places (pun intended)? I mean, how often do we get the chance to custom-design something that’s going to be the centerpiece of our living room for years to come? It’s time to embrace our inner interior designers and get excited about the perfect fit.

Measuring Up

So, where do we start? Well, first things first – let’s talk measurements. I know, I know, the very thought of busting out the tape measure can strike fear into the hearts of even the most seasoned home decor enthusiasts. But I promise, it’s not as scary as it seems. In fact, with a few simple tips and tricks, you’ll be measuring like a pro in no time.

First up, let’s address the elephant in the room – or should I say, the sofa in the living room? Many of us have a tendency to associate measuring ourselves with negative feelings about our bodies. But I’m here to tell you, those measuring tapes are not the enemy. They’re actually your secret weapon for creating a piece of furniture that fits you like a glove (or a perfectly tailored pair of pants, if we’re sticking with the analogy).

The key is to approach the measuring process with an open mind and a positive attitude. Treat it as an opportunity to get to know your body and its unique curves and contours. After all, the better you understand your measurements, the better we can work together to create a sofa that’s tailored to your specific needs. And who knows, you might even surprise yourself and discover that you’re a lot more proportionate than you thought.

The Measuring Breakdown

Now, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty. When it comes to custom sofa measurements, there are a few key things we’ll need to take into account. First up, the overall dimensions of the space you have to work with. Measure the length, width, and height of the area where your new sofa will live, and jot those numbers down. This will help us ensure that your custom creation fits seamlessly into your living room (no more squeezing in that oversized behemoth that takes up half the room).

Next, it’s time to focus on your own measurements. Now, I know what you’re thinking – do I really need to strip down to my skivvies for this? The short answer is no, but the more form-fitting your clothing, the more accurate your measurements will be. Aim for something like leggings and a tank top, or even just your undergarments. That way, the tape measure can really hug your curves and give us a true representation of your shape.

Once you’re all suited up (or un-suited up, as the case may be), it’s time to start measuring. As the experts at Made by Rae suggest, begin with your upper bust measurement, taking the tape around your torso just under your armpits. Then, move on to the full bust, wrapping the tape around the fullest part of your chest.

Next up, the waist. Now, this one can be a bit tricky, as the natural waistline can vary from person to person. As the Made by Rae team explains, the waist measurement is typically taken “well above the belly button,” rather than at the low waist where most pants sit. So, try to identify your natural waistline, usually somewhere between your lowest rib and the top of your hip bones.

Finally, we’ll measure your hips. The Made by Rae blog suggests that this one can be a bit tricky too, as the location of the hips can vary from person to person. The key is to find the widest part of your booty, below your hip bones.

With all of these measurements in hand, you’re well on your way to custom sofa perfection. But the fun doesn’t stop there – we’ve got a few more tricks up our sleeve to ensure your new piece of furniture is a match made in heaven.

Comfort Counts

You see, at, we believe that comfort is just as important as the perfect fit. After all, what’s the point of having a sofa that hugs your curves in all the right places if it’s as stiff as a board?

That’s why we work closely with each and every one of our customers to ensure that their custom sofa not only looks like a million bucks, but feels like a cloud. We start by carefully selecting the highest-quality materials, from the plush, supportive cushions to the sturdy, yet flexible frame. And we don’t just rely on our own expertise – we also take the time to understand your personal preferences and priorities when it comes to comfort.

Are you the type who loves to curl up with a good book and sink into the cushions? Or do you prefer a more upright, supportive seating experience? Do you tend to run hot, or are you always reaching for a cozy throw? These are the kinds of questions we’ll dive into to ensure that your new sofa is tailor-made for your unique lounging needs.

But the fun doesn’t stop there. Once we’ve nailed down the perfect fit and comfort level, we’ll work with you to bring your vision to life. Whether you’re envisioning a sleek, modern silhouette or a more traditional, tufted design, we’ve got the skills and the resources to make it happen. And with our wide range of high-quality fabrics and finishes, the possibilities are truly endless.

So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to ditch the one-size-fits-all mentality and embrace the beauty of a custom-made sofa that’s been designed just for you. Head on over to and let’s get started on your perfect match.
