A little calculus never hurt nobody, so whip up a pen and a piece of paper to jot down your numbers and let’s dive right in.
- Shoulders: it’s best if you can get a hand with this one. Place one tip of the measuring on one shoulder and take it all the way around the back. Note that the tape should be as high up your shoulders as possible. Jot down the results when ready.
- Bust: if you are wearing a bra at the moment of measuring, it’s advised that you take it off for a more accurate result. Wind the tape around your bust, but don’t pull too tight! We don’t want to squash your beautiful curves. Put down the result as well.
- Waist: wind the tape around the waist, aim for the line above the belly button. Ready? Just one more left!
- Hips: place the tip of the tape below the hip bone on one side, and wrap all the way around the butt.
Now comes the tricky part. We’re going to take your waist and divide it by the shoulders. If the difference is less than 25%, AND all of your measurements are within 5% of each other - congrats, your body shape is rectangle!
