You Will Need
- Tape measure
Remove or raise clothing
Remove your shirt or raise it above your waistline and lower your pants.
Find your waist
Use your fingers to find the top of your hip bone at your side. Your waist is the soft area just above the hip bone, below your rib cage.
Hold the end of the tape measure at your navel and bring it around your waist to the front.
Read the tape
Place one finger on the tape at the point where the zero end of the tape hits your waist measurement and read the measurement.
Repeat the process
Repeat the measurement once more to ensure accuracy and the perfect fit for your next purchase.
