Height – measure in a straight line from the tip of the head to the heels. Stand straight, with your feet together. Take off your shoes when measuring.
Chest circumference – measure horizontally over the largest protrusion of the breasts and over the shoulder blades, measure under the arms.
Waist circumference – measure horizontally at the narrowest point close to the auxiliary ribbon at the waist. The meter must be freely, not firmly retracted. For obese figures, we measure in the widest waist circumference, usually at the navel.
The waist circumference for station pants can be measured at the point where the pants are worn. For emergency pants, overalls and slacks, we measure at the navel – this measure is especially important for an atypical figure.
