There's a way they take the measurements so that even if different people do it they should get the same results. But I have found that a lot of counselors don't know or just don't do it.

Bust: Hold your arms out and they place the tape around your back. You put your arms down and they measure the fullest part.

Waist: Put your hands on your natural waist. They should measure right where you put your hands.

Hips: Put your hands on your natural waist and kinda make a V with your hands so the thumbs are around the back and the fingers are pointing down. They should measure at your middle fingers.

Thighs: Make a fist and hold it at your side. They should measure at the bottom of your knuckles.

I find that my results are obviously more accurate when the same person does it, but after six months the asst. mgr. left so I just have them keep doing it that way.
