Measuring Your Hips
Hi there, it’s Remy, owner/designer of Lōliʻi and I’m going to explain how to get your hip measurement.
Getting your measurements is super simple, you’ll only need 2 things! A mirror and a tape measure. You can use any standard tape measure, if you don’t have one, you can order one online for very little or pick one up almost anywhere (Longs, Target, Walmart, or any fabric store near you). You can also download a FREE printable tape measure here and print it from your desktop computer.
When taking your measurements, make sure you are either in your underwear or in thin, form-fitting clothing.
Take your tape measure and wrap it around your hips, at your hip bones, and bring it to the front and center. To make sure you’re getting an accurate measurement, stand in front of a mirror and make sure your tape measure is lying flat and snug on your body. You want to make sure your tape measure is parallel to the ground, not sagging, drooping, or unevenly aligned. Once you’ve got your measurements, write it down somewhere so you don’t forget it.
And that’s how you get your hip measurement.
