7. WAIST CIRCUMFERENCE AT BOTTOM

Measure around the bottom of the waistcoat. This measurement is much easier done with the waistcoat on the dancer. If you can’t measure on a dancer, sometimes this measurement is easier done by using a piece of string to wrap around the bottom circumference of the waistcoat and then measuring the string.

8. NATURAL WAIST CIRCUMFERENCE

Measure around the narrowest part of the waist coat. This measurement is much easier done with the waistcoat on the dancer. If you can’t measure on a dancer, sometimes this measurement is easier done by using a piece of string to wrap around the bottom circumference of the waistcoat and then measuring the string.
