Body Mass Index
What is a body mass index (BMI)? Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measurement that compares height to weight.
For more information, about body mass index, what it means, and how it is calculated, read “What is the BMI?”
How do I measure waist-to-hip ratio?
Use an ordinary tape measure and:
- Measure your waist at its narrowest (usually aroundÂ the belly-button or just above it).
- Measure your hips at the widest part around your buttocks.
Hate to do math? No problem. Use our free, online Waist-to-Hip Calculator – just enter your waist and hip measurements and the calculator does all the work for you!
