Measure under your arms at the fuller part of your bust. Keep tape level across your shoulder blades. Keeping the tape around your back at band level, measure at the fullest part of your bust. Make sure the tape isn’t too tight by taking a full breath in and out, allowing the tape to slide to its most comfortable (yet snug) position. Make sure the tape lays flat, and goes only over your chest and shoulder blades, not over your arms or your cat or anything else. Wrap the tape around the biggest part of your bust, which on most gals is somewhere at or slightly above nipple level.
Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape comfortably loose.Stand with your feet hip-width apart and bend sideways-where you indent is your natural waist. Feel along your sides for the top of your hipbones, and then wiggle your fingers around the area until you find the natural indentation just above the bones-that’s what is supposed to be your waist. Wrap the tape around your body at the natural waistline. The tape should be flat against your body and parallel to the floor.
Stand with your feet together and measure around the fullest part of your hips. Again, this can be tough to locate. Feel along your sides for your leg joint, and then LOOK DOWN to see if this is the widest part of you. Wrap a measuring tape around your body at the fullest part of your bottom. Be sure the tape is flat against your body and parallel to the floor.
Using a pair of your pants that fit well, measure from crotch seam to bottom of leg. Tip: Remember to take into account the height of heel you’ll most likely be wearing with the new pair, and add about 1/2 inch if you’re going to be buying pants that you’ll machine-wash to accommodate a bit of shrinkage.
