HOW TO TAKE ACCURATE BODY MEASUREMENT
Using a fabric tape measure instead of a metal one to take these measurements. When you circle your chest, stomach, or hips, make sure the tape is level and not too tight or loose. Often, don’t weigh yourself over your clothes; instead, measure yourself on your bare skin. And, though it might seem ridiculous, don’t depend on your memory; write down the measurements.
- Chest:Measure the circumference of your chest. Place one end of the tape measure at the fullest part of your chest, wrap it around (under your armpits, around your shoulder blades, and back to the front) to get the measurement.
- Waist:Measure the circumference of your waist. Use the tape to circle your waist (as a belt would) at your natural waistline, which is located above your belly button and below your rib cage. (If you bend to the side, the crease that forms is your natural waistline.) Don’t suck in your stomach, or you’ll get a false measurement. If you generally fasten your clothes below your waist, take that measurement as well.
- Hips:Measure the circumference of your hips. Start at one hip and wrap the tape measure around your rear, around the other hip, and back to where you started. Make sure the tape is over the largest part of your buttocks. Because making sure the tape is level back there can be hard, do it in front of a mirror if you can.
- Inseam:This is the distance from the uppermost inner part of your thigh to the bottom of your ankle. You can measure your inseam in two ways.
- Thigh:Measure the circumference of the fullest part of your thigh. Wrap the tape measure around your thigh from front to back and then around to the front. You may be tempted to cheat by lowering the tape measure a few inches, but then you won’t get an accurate measurement.
- Upper arm:Measure the circumference of your arm. Wrap the tape measure around the widest part of your upper arm from front to back and around to the start point.
- Sleeve length:Get help for this one; it’s hard to do yourself. Place your hand at your waist (your elbow should be bent at a 90-degree angle). Then start at the middle of the back of your neck and measure to your shoulder, down your arm to the elbow, and then on to the wrist.
