Measure around the natural waist. If you're not sure where your natural waist is, bend over at the side and note where the skin folds. Take the measurement at this point, maing sure to keep the tape parallel to the ground. This determines your waist measurement.
Measure around the fullest part of the seat/hips, standing with heels together and making sure to keep the tape parallel to the ground. This determines your hip measurement.
