What's your WHR (waist-to-hip ratio)?

How to calculate: waist divided by hips equals ratio

Example:

waist - 30 inches
hips - 45 inches

30" / 45" = .6667 = 66.67%

Hmm, mine came out to this:

28/34 = 0.82352941176470588235294117647059

I wonder if I qualify for mini-man-pear status...because that ratio is pretty decent. :confused: (For example, someone with the same ratio as me with 60 inch hips would have a 49 inch waist.)

.767 - but I agree with Dan. How much do we have to break down the numbers for the sake of "hawtnez".... seems silly.

Waist measurements sometimes screw me up. I have a smaller waist at the end of my ribs 33", but I have more of a belly closer to my hips almost 40" (a drop waist?) - which part do you measure? (Hips 43")

Not just for this, but for clothes, too.

.767 or .93?

For clothing it's where you want your pants to sit... so that's up to you.

In terms of your natural waist, it's supposed to be about 7-9 inches up from your hips (sometimes the span from middle finger to thumb when spread out, guess it depends on how long your fingers are though).

Thank you! :)
