I guess I'm different from most people. I measure measure halfway between elbow and armpit, halfway between ankle and knee, etc. no matter which spot is biggest or littlest. I figure that the size thing might shift, but the length of my arms and legs won't change at this point in my life. I use nipples as a guide for measuring breasts, I measure at my belly button, and I measure over my hipbones. I also measure my neck - halfway between collarbone and jaw. I don't measure my "waist" at all (though it did get measured recently by the new personal trainer - I don't even remember what the number was). I don't need that measurement. Calling that spot the "waist" has always seemed like a vanity thing to me anyhow. It is the narrowest portion of my torso, but it is not in any way my waist - my pants don't go there, my hands don't go there, my SO's arms don't go there. Meh
