Answering a Reader Question #318
Hi! First off, I love your blog and it is so helpful. I have a question though- how can I find my measurements? I see around your blog a lot, for example, 34-26-36, and I'm not exactly sure what it means. Can I get my measurements myself? How can I do so accurately? And one more question, what is the ideal measurements for a runway model? Thank you for all of your help! :)
Hi, Anonymous! Thanks for the kind words...you're so sweet! :-)
When I refer to measurements like 34-26-36, I am talking about the following:
34 = the bust measurement in inches
26 = the waist measurement in inches
36 = the hip measurement in inches
It is best to have someone take your measurements for you, since this will give you the most accurate numbers. Below is a link to a blog post I did about this very topic, which will give you more details as to how to go about this:
How to Measure Yourself
The ideal measurements for a runway model is 34-24-34 (bust, waist and hips in inches). It is okay to be smaller than that but models can't be any larger than one inch in any of those areas. So the maximum would be 35-25-35.
