So I was just wondering where everyone takes their measurements for the following.

Chest
Waist
Midway/Stomach
Hips

Just would be nice to see where everyone else does it and if I am taking them right. Thanks!

Measure your chest around the nipple line, your stomach below the belly button, and your hips around the center of your bottom. I measure my waist in above my belly button right where the bend is when you bend to the side, but some people say that you are suppossed to measure at the belly button. That is just too low for the waist for me.

If I measure my chest around the nipple line then where do I messure for my bust line?? I measure my chest right under my breasts. I also measure my waist at the smallest part and my stomach on my belly button.

I measure both my bust & under my bust. So around the nipple line & then under my breasts. As for your waist, you're always supposed to measure the smallest part, for most that's just above the navel. I measure my neck, my biceps, bust, under bust, waist, hips, thighs & calves. But that's just me. Very Happy
