Default Feather measurements

Hi Feathers!

I am just wondering what your measurements are like. Weight isn't all there is to be said about our overall appearance.

I've gone down quite a lot since I started. My starting measurements:

Thigh: 26 inch
Hips: 38.5 inch
Belly: 34 inch
Waist: 32 inch
Ribcage: 31,5 inch
Calf: 16 inch

And now:
Thigh:22.8 (-3.2)
Hips:36 (-2.5)
Belly:31.8 (-2.2)
Waist:26.7 (-5.3)
Ribcage: 28.7 (-2.8)
Calf:14.7 (-1.3)

I feel like I have massive thighs, so just curious to see what you all are writing down. Hahah.

Oh, good idea for a thread! I don't keep track of anything other than my bust, waist, and hip. And my waist is the only thing that ever changes, no matter what I weigh.

It's late in the day so these are measurements current as of about a week ago:
Bust: 36
Waist: 26
Hip: 35.5

I'd like to get my waist down to about 25. Possibly less. It'll be easier in the spring and summer time because I naturally have a lighter appetite when it's warm out. Plus, I spend far more time outside moving around than I do in the winter, when I just have to force myself to use the gym.

These measurements are about a week old, but I don't think they've changed much:

Bust: 36"
Ribcage: 29.5"
Waist: 24.5"
Hips: 34"
Thigh: 19.5"

My starting measurements are in my ticker and I have updated measurements every 10lbs on my blog but I'm too lazy to look them up at the moment.

However, my current measurements (might not be 100% precise, haven't checked them all that recently):

156lbs and 5'6"
Bust ~"40 (depends on the bra) I wear somewhere between a 28HH-JJ depending on the bra type
Underbust=28"
Waist 29.5-30"
Belly button 33-34"
High Hip 35-36"
Hips 38"
Thighs 23"

My midsection depends a lot on the time of month and what I ate, hence, the range...

I really need to get a measuring tape. I lost mine and haven't measured in a while.

Oh gosh some of you are putting me to shame! I've starting lifting so I hope these will go down, I have one of those awful body types where I have skinny arms and legs are carry all of my weight in my torso.

Bust: 38
Waist: 29
Belly Button: 33
Hips: 39

I want a measuring tape darnit! I'm getting to the point where I can comfortably pull a pencil skirt that used to be a struggle to zip down beyond the smallest part of my waist

Oh man, this is reminding me of the full-body measurements I need to take for a "goal reward" dress I'm having made!

Bust: 33"
Ribcage: 28"
Waist: 23.5"-24"
Low waist: 28"
Hip: 32.5"
Thigh: 18.5"

Sharing these measurements really helps remind me of three things:
1) I definitely don't feel as tiny as my measurement make me realize I am -- more evidence of how hard it is to see your own weight loss in the mirror.
2) Body recomposition is my next fitness goal -- I would love to shrink that low waist measurement (fat on stomach/back) and thigh measurement (ditto) and increase the hip measurement (butt muscle)!
3) I need to buy new bras a lot. Haha.

Yeah lackadaisy that's TEENSY! Especially the hip measurement!

I measured myself this morning using an inflexible industrial measuring tape and a USB cable.

Bust: 32.5"
Waist: 26"
Hip: 36"
Thigh: 20.5"

I measured today and I lost a half inch off my hips! I was wondering why my pants fit better.
