|B||Waist controlled ( take a deep breath and pull in to make it as small as possible)|
|C||Front waist down between the legs to
the start of the labia lips.
Fasten a one-inch wide belt around the waist, and from the bottom edge of the belt at front centre, measure down to the start of the labia lips.
|D||Front waist down between the legs to
the end of the labia lips.
From the bottom edge of the belt at front centre, measure down to the end of the labia lips.
|I||Waist front between legs to anus.
From the same point, measure down between the legs to the anus, keeping as straight as possible. This is a very important measurement for the sake of accuracy it is worth repeating several times. The subject must maintain an upright position during this procedure.
|J||Waist front between legs and buttocks
to rear waist.
With the belt still in position, find the centre back of the waist and mark it. Make two further marks; one 3 inches to the right of the centre, and another 3 inches to the left. By measuring from the centre back mark find the front centre of the waist and mark it. At the front centre, measure from the bottom edge of the belt down between the legs and up over the buttocks to the right hand mark at the rear waist, bottom edge. Repeat this procedure to the left-hand mark. This second measurement should be the same and serves as double check. Make sure the measuring tape stays flat and snug against the skin all the way, taking the most direct route possible. Exercise care with these measurements.
|K||Waist front between legs and over
buttocks to rear waist
With the belt still in place, measure from the bottom edge front centre to the bottom edge rear centre. Make sure the tape fits snugly up between the buttocks.
|L||Waist rear between buttocks to anus.
From the bottom edge of the belt rear centre waist measure down between the buttocks to the anus.
|M||Waist measurement using one inch wide
Adjust the belt to the smallest circumference at which you feel you could wear it and mark the position. Do not be tempted to settle for a nice comfortable fit, aim at a tight rather than a loose fit. Remove the belt, lay it out flat and measure from the end to the reference mark to determine the length. The waistband will be made to this measurement. A and B are used to provide a comparative check.
