Do You Know Where Your Natural Waist Is?

Do you know the difference between a waistband measurement and your natural waist measurement?  It can be confusing because designers label their sizes with a bit of a misnomer.  Clothing labels that call for a waist size in their measurements are actually referring to the waistband of the garment, not your natural waist measurement.

It’s no secret that the most flattering silhouette for a woman is the hour-glass figure. Regardless of your size, your clothing choices should be inspired by this type of figure. Therefore, knowing where your natural waist falls as well as its measurement is essential in finding the most flattering outfits for your body type.

How To Find Your Natural Waist


Your natural waist is actually the smallest area of your torso (above your navel) and in most cases, it's easily identifiable by just looking in the mirror.  To measure this area just take a tape measure and measure the circumference of this area.  Keep in mind that depending on how long or short your torso is, your natural waist may be higher or lower than that of your friends – it’s all good though! 😉

Now this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t know the measurement of your waistband area (go ahead and take that measurement too!), but I just want you to be aware of where your real waist is.  Styling knowledge is power!

Stylishly Yours,
