The actual requirements of body dimensions revolve around your chest, waist, hips, and height. The process of properly taking body measurements by yourself is simple, but many people do not know precisely when to start/stop measuring for a more accurate outcome. So, here is a perfect way by which you can easily take your body measurements.


In order to measure your height by yourself, grab a pencil and stand with your back against a wall. Take your shoes off, pat down your hair, and stand erect, Then, using the pencil, mark where the highest point on the top of your head meets the wall. Last step is getting a measuring tape and measure the distance from the mark on a wall to the floor.


The chest measurement is taken circularly around your chest at the widest point. Do not get tense, stand straight in a relaxed posture, and breathe out. The next step is to take the tape measure and wrap it under your armpits around the wide portion of your chest. The tape measure should fit perfectly, not so tight that the breathing becomes constricted but not so loose that it falls.


Waist measurement is one of the most important, and you can take a perfect measure around your waist and above your belly button. Bending side to side creates a crease that forms is your natural waistline. To measure the waist, stand in a relaxed posture, and use the tape to circle. Now, place a finger between the body to get comfortable and note down the measurements.


The take a hip measurement place the end of the tape measure on one of your hips at the pointiest part. Move the tape around your body, over your bum and your second hip, and then back to the starting point. It is best to measure at your lower back and the fullest part of your buttocks to get the most accurate reading.
