Covert Bailey's Measuring Tips

Use these tips to correctly measure your waist and hips


Stand up straight but do not suck in your stomach; be relaxed. Measure your waist at the greatest circumference. Men sometimes have trouble with this measurement. It can vary by five inches quite easily. For example, Covert gets:

  1. Maximum suck-in of gut
    32 inches
  2. Relaxed but still consciously sucking in
    33 inches
  3. Comfortable, but still self-conscious/ unconscious sucking in
    34 inches
  4. Probably the way he usually is when on else is around
    35 inches
  5. Blown out, deliberately exaggerated belly
    38 inches
