Hi there, it’s Remy, owner/designer of Lōliʻi and I want to walk you through the steps of how to get your waist measurements.
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.
First we’re going to get our standard waist measurement. You’re going to find your belly button, and then from there, take your tape measure and wrap it around your waist 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.
Next we’re going to get our natural waist measurement, this is at the narrowest part of your waist, usually a couple inches higher than your belly button. So, just like before, take your tape measure and wrap it around your natural waist, and bring it to the front and center.
And there you go! That’s how you get your waist measurements.
