    **measure correctly
    you want to be sure that when you measure, the tape is straight and in line with the appropriate body part.

    or perpendicular (based on the line orientation of the body part being measured).

  • Before you start,

    Tips:

    **wear appropriate clothing.
    you can’t get a very accurate measurement when wearing baggy or thick clothing,
    so try to wear clothes which fit closely or wear nothing at all.
    similarly,
    breast measurements for women will be most accurate when wearing a well-fitting, unpadded bra.
