HOW TO MEASURE WAIST
Wrap the tape measure slightly tight around the natural indentation of the waist, preferably on bare skin. If you can't find this curve, bend to one side and the crease will show you where to measure.
HOW TO MEASURE HIP
Wrap the tape measure around the fullest part of your hips. Use the mirror to make sure the tape measure is straight all the way around. The tape measure should be snug and parallel to the ground.
