- Bust – the largest measurement you get around your chest area.
- Waist – the narrowest measurement you get around your mid-section.
- High hip – here’s how to find it.
Find the top of your hip bones (iliac crest for you anatomy buffs).
As you slide your hands down from the narrowest part of your waist, they are the first bones you feel. Place the tape measure just below these hip bones and measure circumference. On most people, this is around 3 or4 inches below the belly button.
- Men’s inseam. You probably should not worry about your inseam when ordering shirts.
