How/where do you take waist measurement??
Sunday, March 17, 2013
Now years ago before I ever had kids (when I was 18...and yesterday I turned 49) and almost any model with an hourglass figure knows where her waist is. The skinniest part runs around the middle about the same location as your belly-button.
But now my belly button is no longer in the skinniest part of me. So do I measure my waist at the belly-button section or do I move upwards and measure the skinny area and count that as my waist??
Across the belly-button I get about 46" but if I move the tape measure up 5", then I am only 41.5 inches around. And both pair of shorts I just bought today have a 34 inch elastic waist.
This is all to confusing for me. How are we supposed to know our true waist size?
46...41.5...34??? No matter which one of those numbers I choose as my waist size; it is still bigger then what my hips "USED" to be before children. I assume hips would not be so confusing to measure but I have not taken those measurements
