How To Measure Your Hips
Hold the start of the tape measure on one hip, wrap it around your buttocks and around your other hip and then back to where you started. Ensure the tape is held snugly around your skin, but resist the temptation to pull it too tightly.
How To Measure Your Waist
- Start at the top of your hip bone, then bring the tape measure all the way around your body, level with your belly button.
- Make sure it's not too tight and that it's straight, even at the back. Don't hold your breath while measuring.
- Check the number on the tape measure right after you exhale.
