If possible, get a friend to help. With arms relaxed at your sides, measure the fullest part of your bust, keeping the tape parallel to the floor.

Place your hands at your natural waistline. This is where the tape should be positioned. If you cannot find your natural waist, stand with your feet slightly apart and bend to the side. Where your waist creases is the natural waist. Keep one finger between the tape and your body.

Hips: Stand naturally with your heels together in a relaxed pose. Measure with the tape around the fullest part of the hips. Do not pull the tape tight.
