Measurements needed for the body shape calculator

Which of those types are you? The body shape calculator is just 3 measures away.

For the above body shape calculator to work you need to measure:

  • The largest diameter on your shoulder level.
  • The widest point of your hips.
  • Finally the smallest part of your waist.

For this you just need a measuring tape and something to record the numbers. For detailed instructions please see the hints below (please click on the plus sign to see details):

Measuring your shoulder width without help from another person is very difficult. The easiest way is to get support from a friend while you stay in front of her / him. Your friend should wrap the measuring tape around the shoulder on the highest possible point. The tape should almost slide over the top of your shoulders! This should be the widest part of your shoulders. Do no measure straight across the shoulders, instead encircle them with the tape measure. Please note down the circumference and put it into the corresponding body shape calculator field above.
For this you either need a friend again or you determine the slimmest part of your lower body in a mirror. wrap the measuring tape around this part while breathing and standing naturally.

Please make sure to not wrap the measuring tape too tight. It should not sink into your skin as this could lead to inaccurate results.

As with the other two measurments either rely on another person or look into a mirror. The hip should be measured at the widest point of your hip bones and buttocks. Wrap the tape around you in a straight line and take note of the width.

As with the waist please make sure that the measuring band just lies flat on the skin without applying any force.

Congratulations you are ready to return to the body shape calculator above!
