For the person being measured:
- The person being measured should wear a swimsuit; women should wear the same type of suit they wear when diving or surfing.
- Stand straight, legs slightly apart.
- Take a good breath and hold it while the Bust/Chest, Waist & Stomach measurements are taken.
- Face straight ahead, keeping your eyes and head leveled. It is important that you don't look down, as it will create an error in some of the measurements. This is a common cause of measurements not being correct, this cannot be over emphasized. Look straight ahead!
For the person doing the measurement:
- You will need a measuring tape, a pencil and some patience.
- Arm and leg measurements should be taken on the dominant side.
- Please note that many of the measurements connect from one point to the next. You can leave one end of the measuring tape in place and advance to the next measurement.
- Measuring tape should be snug, neither loose nor tight.
- Take the time to actually mark the measuring points on the body. This can be done with a felt tip pen, masking tape, or chalk. One very important point to mark is the proper crotch point/Inside Leg. Having the person being measured hold a magazine between their legs where it fits comfortably in the crotch does this. Then place another magazine horizontally across the first magazine, holding it perfectly level. At the point where the second magazine intersects the upper leg, make a dot. This dot will designate the crotch point. It is extremely important that the person stands straight while this point is being determined.
