However, if, for example, you plan to wear a skirt solely for kapron tights, it makes sense to make measurements in them. Measurements are made using centimeter tape at the most prominent points of the buttocks. Do not repeat the mistakes of those who measure the hips circumference along the line breeches or protruding bones.

Если вы имеете выступающий живот, выполните измерения с учетом его выступа. Для этого используйте гибкую пластину, приложенную к животу и спускающуюся к бедрам. Выступ живота особенно важно учитывать, если вы собираетесь покупать или заказывать слитный suit.

For tailor-made purposes, the measurement result is denoted by the abbreviation OB, for example, ABOUT 98 or expressed in half size and denote PoB (half-hip). So, the same measurement result can be expressed as OB98 and as PBO49.

Если вы планируете покупать одежду иностранного производства, не исключено, что вам придется перевести сантиметры в другую меру длины: замеры одежды американских производителей чаще всего выражаются в дюймах (inch). В 1 дюйме умещается 2,54см. Также воспользуйтесь следующей таблицей по переводу сантиметров в дюймы:

1 mm = 0,0397 in.

1 cm = 0,397 in.

1 m = 39,37 in.

На письме дюймы обозначаются апострофом: 0,0397’; 39,37’ и т.д.

In the event that you need to measure the hips, and a centimeter tape is not at hand, make a measurement with any tape or rope. To do this, grasp the hips with a ribbon (rope) along the most prominent points of the buttocks and notice on the tape (rope) the place that corresponds to the measurement. You can make a stitch in this place with a colored thread or tie a knot. Then the tape (rope) can be attached to a wooden meter or roulette and thus learn the measurement in numerical terms.
