• How to measure the body?

    In the article we will talk about the correct measurement of various parameters of the body. You will learn how to measure the volume of the body - the hips, waist, thigh part of the legs, chest and other parts of the body. I will also tell you about how to measure body mass, or rather, what should be taken into account in order for the result to be as accurate as possible. And we begin with the parameters measured in centimeters:

    • Waist,
    • hips,
    • breasts
    • foot size, etc.

    How to measure the body

    Let's start with the most "problematic" for many, especially women, size - waist. For a rough estimate of the size of the waist, it is necessary to take into account that the waist is usually about 3 cm narrower than the belt of the skirt, which fits tightly over the stomach. Although for a more accurate measurement (if it is necessary) it is better to take a strip of fabric that is pleasant to the body and measure the waist without clothes, and then specify the result by measuring the tape by stretching the strip along it. At the same time when measuring keep the tape is not too tight, but not very loose. Now how to measure the parameters of the body, for example, the volume of the thighs and thighs of the leg.The volume of the hips is measured as follows: the legs are brought together, and the measuring tape should run along the most convex parts of the buttocks. Here again - for more accuracy it is better to perform measurements without clothes. As for the volume of the femoral part of the leg, the measuring tape is applied to the very top of the thigh - where it joins with the buttock. As for the volume of the breast, it is traditionally measured by the most convex part of the breast. Now let's talk about how to measure the length of the foot.

    How to measure the body - foot

    To make accurate measurements, we need an assistant. To start, you need to put the foot on a sheet of paper (not only in shoes, but in thin socks) and transfer the body weight to it. Next, the assistant must draw the outline of the foot, but so that there are no allowances, that is, you need to fit the pencil as closely as possible to the foot. The resulting contour is measured by the most distant points of the foot in a straight line. By the way, many shoe manufacturers, when marking their products, use this parameter, only rounded to 0.5 cm. So, if your foot is 21.8 cm long, you should round it up to 22 cm.21.7 cm can also be rounded to 22 cm, as a little more spacious shoes are still better than cramped shoes. But to measure the fullness of the shoe, you need to measure the foot in the girth in two places: first, in the area of ​​ascent, and secondly - in the area of ​​the metatarsophalangeal joint, that is, draw a diagonal line along the base of the fingers. In this case, the tape should be applied to the foot as tightly as possible. The size of the foot is not less important than its length, because walking is not less unpleasant to walk in tight shoes than in short. However, the choice of a particular model is made, rather, by the sensations, but, nevertheless, it is sometimes very useful to know your parameters. And a few words about how to correctly measure weight, or rather, body weight.

    How to measure body weight

    To do this, just stand on the scales and after a while look at the result - as soon as it locks in place. However, to obtain a more accurate figure, it is better to repeat the procedure, since the first weighing is not always 100% accurate - there may be discrepancies a hundred or two grams, and sometimes even a pound. This is explained by the fact that on the scales we stand far from always evenly and calmly.Some are weighed even three times in cases when the scales showed a different result with the first two approaches. In addition, before weighing be sure to remove shoes and excess clothing. To obtain the most accurate data on your body weight, it is best to weigh in underwear or no clothes at all. By the way: to speak correctly is not weight, but weight. Weight is a value measured completely in other units of measure - in Newtons.
