    Where exactly is waist size measured from? I always thought of the waist as the bit with your hip bone (Just above the pubes!) but apparantly waist size is measured around your belly button?

    yes i think ( around the belly button ) cuz girls measurements are like 36, 24 , 34 as an example

    36 = chest 24 = waist 34 = hips

    or something

    belly button is right. hips on hipbone.
    36 , 24, 34?you'd be top heavy (shoulders)
    i think a size 12 waist is something like 28/29 & uk av womens size is 14.

    erm.... dont know. why do you need to know the measurements anyway? apart from bra sizes you dont really need to use them. plus each shop tends to have its own idea of what the measurements for each size should be (grrrr) so its pretty useless.

    Isn't it just the thinnest part of yuo which is vertically below your chest?

    I don't think it is as straightforward as "around the bellybutton" because my bellybutton is almost on the line of my hips i think...
