Waist Measurement Guide

We will show you you how to measure your waist and tell you what the measurement mean for your health.

To measure your waist circumference:

  1. Stand straight and keep your heels together.
  2. Stand straight and bend to your side. The bend is your natural waist.
  3. Hold a measuring tape around your bare abdomen around your waist, just above your hipbone.
  4. The tape should be close to the abdomen (but should not exert pressure on your skin).The tape should be parallel to the floor.
  5. Keep your thumb behind the tape and do not pull it tight.
  6. Stand relaxed, exhale and measure your waist.
Studies show that women with a waist size of more than 35 inches; and men with a waist size of more than 40 inches have higher chances of diseases than people with smaller waist size. For a woman, 32 inches or less is considered as normal waist line. For a man, having waist 37 inches or less is considered normal.
