How to measure yourself correctly.
When measuring yourself it is important to stand up straight, comfortably, and to not 'suck in'. Remember to keep your tape-measure level with the floor.
You need to find the ball of your shoulder, which is just before the curve of your shoulder. Using your tape-measure, place the start of your tape-measure at the ball of one of your shoulders and pull it across your upper back (below your neck) and place in the same place on your other shoulder. Make sure this is taught and level with the floor.
This point of measure is approximately 27.5 cm from your high shoulder point, or simply the fullest part of your chest. To measure your bust circumference, pull the tape-measure around your body, holding flat against your back, and pull taught around yourself until it meets in the front at your true bust point.
This point of measure is where the bottom edge of your bra band sits, under your breast. To measure your under-bust circumference, pull the tape-measure around your body, holding flat against your back, and pull taught around yourself until it meets in the front at your true under-bust point.
This point of measure is approximately 42 cm from your high shoulder point, or simply the narrowest part of your figure. To measure your waist circumference, pull the tape-measure around your body, holding against your back, and pull taught around yourself until it meets in the front at your true waist point.
This point of measure is approximately 52 cm from your high shoulder/side neck point, straight down, or, approximately 10 cm below your waist point. To measure your high-hip circumference, pull the tape-measure around your body, holding against your back, and pull taught around yourself until it meets in the front at your true high-hip point.
This point of measure is approximately 62 cm from your high shoulder/side neck point, straight down, or, approximately 20 cm below your waist point. To measure your high-hip circumference, pull the tape-measure around your body, holding against your back, and pull taught around yourself until it meets in the front at your true low-hip point.
This point of measure is approximately 2.5 cm below your inner-crotch point.To measure your thigh circumference, pull the measuring tape around your thigh, holding flat against your leg, then pull taught against your thigh until it meets in the centre of your top leg at your true thigh point.
This point of measure is approximately 2.5 cm below your inner arm-pit point. To measure your bicep circumference, pull the measuring tape around your upper arm, holding flat against your arm, then pull taught against your bicep until it meets in the centre of your true bicep point.
