Does Your Wrist Hold the Secret to What You Should Wear?
But it’s not the only thing.
Did you know that it’s possible to have the exact same BMI as a person standing beside you, and be an entirely different size because of their bone structure?
In this day and age, it is a piece of cake to unearth countless videos, blogs, websites, apps, and pages that are dedicated to discovering what your body type may be. “Just enter your bust, waist, and hip measurement…” However, what are they telling you?
Not much, really.
Haven’t you been left “wanting” after those “calculators”? Very quickly, we come to the realization that those three simple torso measurements just will not do! There’s much more to determining your body type than just your bust, waist, and hip measurements.
The list of important (yet neglected) measurements goes on and on, and it soon becomes clear that “something is missing” from those online calculators.
There are so many analyses that come into play, so we’ll focus on one today.
A small framed woman will have different issues with dressing than a medium framed or large framed woman. We’ll discuss those details in the next blog post, but first let’s find out what your Body Frame is.
By measuring the circumference of your wrist (just above the wrist bone), you can combine it with your height for a swift and simple body frame calculator. Then compare that measurement to the chart (included in this blog post).
Less accurate than a tape measure is your own hand. Wrap your thumb and middle finger around the same area of your wrist. If they overlap, you have a small frame. If they touch, you have a middle frame. And if they barely touch, you have a large frame.
Awesome trick, isn’t it?
Even though these were just simple, short, and swift examples, doesn’t it make you think?
If the measurement of a wrist can be so important to dressing in clothing that fit, flatter, and fabulously focus on you, then you know that there are numerous other body measurements that should not be neglected either.
In the next blog post, we’ll discuss details about how to dress your small, medium, or large Body Frame!
