How to measure the circumference

Apply the measuring tape to contact with skin, and conform to the body surface. Don't apply pressure on soft tissues, make the measurement parallel to the floor.

  • Abdomen - place tape at the navel (belly button), and parallel to the floor.
  • Neck (male) - measure at a point just below the larynx (Adam's Apple) and perpendicular to the long axis of the neck.
  • Neck (female) - measure at a point just below the larynx (Adam's Apple) and perpendicular to the long axis of the neck
  • Waist - measure at the point of minimal abdominal circumference, usually located about halfway between the navel and the lower end of the sternum (breast bone)
  • Hip - place the tape around the hips so that it passes over the greatest protrusion of the gluteal muscles (buttocks) as viewed from the side.
