In today’s fast-evolving world, our methods for understanding and assessing our bodies must also evolve. If you are wondering why is knowing your perfect body measurement a big deal, read our blog on “Body Measurements: A Roadmap to Personal Style
Let’s talk about some modern methods and alternatives that can help us in getting our perfect fit.
How to take body measurements?
Body Measurement through Pictures-
Imagine snapping a few photos to determine your body measurements. Sounds cool, right? Well, it is! Here’s how it works -
You will need to take full-body pictures from two angles:
- Front View
- Side View
No red carpet poses, just be natural with your hands and legs together closely when taking the side view. For the front view keep your hands 45 degrees apart. Make sure you are wearing tight-fitting clothes. These pictures can then be analyzed to estimate body measurements using specialized software like a body visualizer or manual measurement techniques. Certain features of the body, such as shoulder width, waist circumference, and hip width, can be approximated based on the images.
As fast and convenient as this method is there lies a catch - it is not as precise as the traditional body tape measurements. Factors like image quality, camera angles, and posture can affect the accuracy.
Body Measurements through Questionnaires-
Now, let’s discuss the power of questionnaires. Yep, a simple Q&A session can help gauge your body measurements.
For this, you will have to answer a series of questions about your body dimensions. Height, weight, waist circumference, hip circumference, and even clothing size come into play. You can provide your measurements based on your own perception or use body measurement tape to get the numbers right.
WearVega provides a ‘Body Measurement Questionnaire’ which basically records your measurement figures and assesses your body type and shape which helps in advising you regarding enhancing your fashion and style.
But remember, while this method is convenient and can provide a general overview, it relies on individuals accurately reporting their measurements, which may introduce some level of error or inconsistency.
