Things to remember:

  • You first need to find a soft tape measure, that will allow you to curve it around your body easily. A standard measuring tape will not work!
  • When measuring do not pull the tape too tightly. Keep it just level across your skin.
  • Chest – Measure directly under your breasts or pecs, as high up as you can
  • Waist – Measure at the most narrow point, typically around the navel
  • Hips – Measure around the widest part of the hip/hipbones
  • Arms – Measure above your elbows at the largest part of the arm
  • Thighs – Measure around the largest part of the leg while standing up
  • Bust – Measure all the way around your bust and back
  • Midway – Measure between the widest part of your hips and waist
  • Knees – Measure just above the knee (around the leg)
  • Calves – Measure around the fullest part
  • Forearm – Measure below your elbows at the fullest part
