how to measure yourself



Liz guides us through some best practices on how to find the perfect fit!

bust

getting the right fit

• Measure around the largest part of the bust.
• Keep the measuring tape straight across the front and back.
• Keep your arms at your sides
• Breathe out (we tend to hold our breath when taking measurements)

waist

all around

Finding the natural waist is important. The natural waist is higher than most think; about 1 inch above your belly button. To find your natural waist, follow the photo below:

• Bend to either side. Where your body bends is the natural waist.
• Keep the measuring tape straight across the front and back.
• Breathe out (we tend to hold our breath when taking measurements)

hip

measuring your hips

• Measure around the largest part of your hips and bottom.
• Be sure that the measuring tape is straight across the front and back.
Now you can take this new education and find the perfect garment for every athletic venture! Have fun!

It’s so good to know how to do this — especially when creating a wishlist this time of year!

Great advice – I live in Hawaii and we get a lot of shoppers from the “neighbor islands” who call and ask about the fit & measurements, etc. Now we can refer them to this blog!

For the bust, are you talking about shirts and not bras? Because for bras, I’ve always been told it’s actually right below the breast and the cup size determines the largest part around.
