OK, I'm going to use this measuring tape. You can get one of these in plastic at I'd say, JoAnn Fabrics or any sort of sewing store. And it will last forever and it will aid you in measuring yourself or others. So, I'm going to start with bust; we're going to do bust, waste and hips first. And I'm going to start with bust. In measuring your bust, you want to go all the way around, and it's at the fullest part of your bust that you want to measure; and don't hold it too tight, to squish yourself. And then you got your answer. And then I'm going to go over to my stick figure and fill it in. I usually make a mark here and put a "B" for bust - and then I put the measurement. And that way I will remember what and where the measurement is on the body.
