Almost all of the measurements we use in the Prometheus Forge are standardized.
At the end of the post there is a graph and a table of measurements to help you 😉
Now we are going to give you some tips and tricks when taking measurements:
- Ask someone to measure you, don't measure yourself.
- Always use a flexible tailor ruler (never rigid).
- To know where to measure the waist, ask the person to bend to the side, where he makes the fold there it is the waist.
- To measure the Back width, you can put under each arm a pen.
- When not sure enough it is always better record the largest measure, which is easier to rectify than a minor one.
- The contour measurements they should be rounded to even numbers to facilitate division into quarters.
- When you want to measure yourself, your posture should be as erect as possible. If you are going to do it by yourself, we recommend that you do it in front of a mirror.
- Don't wear too loose clothing to take your body measurements. You can measure yourself with underwear or with very tight clothes.
- When you take the measurements do not adjust the meter too much against your body. This will give you a smaller measurement, but it will not be the real one.
- Record all measurements as you take them and repeat the process at least twice.
Now we are going to define some of the measures:
How to take the measurement of the chest?
To perform this measurement you must pass the meter around your chest. You have to take as a reference the widest part of it. Normally the widest area is usually at the level of the nipples.
How to take the waist measurement?
To measure your waist you have to surround it with the meter in the narrowest area of your torso. It is usually about 4 cm from your navel. Remember not to press the meter against your body.
How to take the hip measurement?
The hip is usually the widest measurement of a woman's body. To measure this area you must surround the widest part of your hip.
How to measure the biceps?
the measure of the biceps it should be taken around the most prominent area of the arm. This point is usually on the highest part of the arm, only about 2 inches (5.1 cm) below the armpit.
Please note that you should measure along the widest part of your shoulders. It is usually about 2.5 to 5 cm below the neck. The tape measure should not be straight horizontally in this measurement. It should form a slight curve along the shoulders.
