Properly measuring your waist can be a bit complicated if you do not know how to do it properly.
• Use a cloth measuring tape instead of a metal measuring tape.
• Placing the tape measure on your waist, which is above your belly button and below your ribs.
• Make sure not to suck in your stomach. Doing so will only give you a fake measurement.
• If in case you love wearing your clothes below the waist, consider this too when you are trying to take a measurement.
Once you have already gotten the right measurement, you can write it down so that you will not forget it. This can be your basis when you are purchasing new clothes that will not be too tight or too loose on you.
