I was just wondering where you measure your hip?
My agency measure a low hip and high hip for me, so i was wondering which one you use as your hip measurement?
I have had people tell me that your true hip measurement is where your hip bones are, and others tell me that its half way down your bum...

I would love to know where to measure, as I'm re-doing my measurements today as i have lost some weight.

Thanks,
Danielle.

It's the fattest part of your butt.

I would say its the middle of your hip. The widest part of hip. smile

the low hip is the standard hip measurement, it's below your hipbones, around the fullest part of your hips/butt.

Measure your hips at the widest part.  On a woman, that means about half-way down your ass.

You measure the fullest part of your hips, so that you know the clothes will fit you at your biggest part.

The fullest part of your ass, but the tape has to go around you sorta like a belt. smile
