The following diagram is a guide to help you take correct body measurements.
Hold the tape measure snug, but not tight around the body.
Take measurements over your underwear, (not outer clothes).

C - HIP - Around the fullest part of the hip, usually 18-23cm (7”-9”) below the waist.
D - NECK MEASUREMENT - All way around the neck.
E - UPPER ARM
G - KNEE
H - ANKLE
D to B - BACK NECK TO WAIST
B to I - BACK WAIST TO FLOOR
