Body shape calculator measurements: correct way for correct results

To accurately determine your body type using our body shape calculator, four specific measurements are required:

  • Bust: Measure at the fullest point of your bust using a soft measuring tape. Ensure that the tape is not too tight by taking deep breaths.
  • Waist: Your waist is the narrowest part of your torso. The measuring tape should fit snugly around your waist without digging into your skin. Avoid pulling in your stomach.
  • Hips: Measure your hips at the widest point below your waist. Remove any clothing and keep your feet together for the most accurate measurement.
  • High hip: This is another hip measurement, but taken at a different location than the previous one. It is measured at the top of the hip curve, not at its widest point. Locate the upper swell of the hip over your pelvic bone.
