Take out a measuring tape. Go on. Right now.

I’ll wait.

This is how you take your measurements. You’ll need a mirror!

Bust – measure at the fullest part of your bust with your bra off. Place the measuring tape at the part of your breast that sticks out the most. Use the mirror to make sure that the measuring tape stays level as you wrap it around, under your arms, and back to the front.

Write it down.

Waist – We’re measuring your natural waist. It’s usually an inch or two above your belly button. There is a natural crease in your waist when you bend to the side. Find it, wrap a measuring tape around it.

Write it down.

Hips – again, we’re looking for the widest part. Look at your butt. Put the measuring tape where your butt sticks out the most. Wrap it around. Use the mirror and make sure to keep it level!

Write it down.

That’s about all I have on that. Basically what I do is use geometry to balance out body types to make everyone look like an hourglass. I love doing posts based on questions from readers, so feel free to comment any that you might have.
