My first goal is to reach waist length however I have my eyes set on longer :)

For me I think that I would have reached hip length at 36inches and I am 5ft 6 with a long torso and neck...

Im interested to know where hip length is on those lucky ladies(and gents) who already have hip length and where you think it is for those of you you havent reached that length

P.S I looked for a thread with this in and couldnt see one...

I'm not exactly sure where to mesure hip on me. Is it hip-bone? Or where my hips sort of pout out from my body?

I choose somewhere in between and ended up with something like 35 inches. I still have a long way to go though, as I am somewhere between APL and BSL right now.

33'' on me measured at the hip bone :)

I think for me, hip is roughly about 33 or 34 inches. It's hard for me to tell exactly, because I am shaped strangely. But as of now, my hair is definitely past hip - but not by a lot. Probably not at tailbone yet, but again... not totally sure where "tailbone" is for me. Anyways, it is currently 36" or so, and past hip. So I estimate hip must have been 33 or 34. I am 5'7.

I'm about 5'4 and hip on me is 27 inches. O.O the heck? I got my mum to measure so it would have been correct, and I measured from the back part on my scalp. I guess my torso is just unusually short!

about 33" (I'm 5'5")

33" would hit hip for me, but 34" would be a nice solid hip length. I'm 5'7"

Hip length is 36" on me and waist is 33". I'm 5' 8 1/2" and have a very short neck and an extra long torso.

33,5 inches, I think (i´m not quite sure cause my hip bone starts right below my waist and thats not right)

what the, just 5 inches left for me then?

PolarCathy
April 25th, 2012, 06:59 AM
About 33" is waist so hip would be 36" or so (?)
I'm 6'

Hip bone for me is 35" (using the LHC method) :)

MonaMayfair
April 25th, 2012, 07:03 AM
I make it 33", but I'm not sure I'm measuring right!

Ooh never edited a post before! What I meant to say was I measured from my front hairline over my back down to my hipbone - I think that's how we're supposed to measure, but it's not how I would have naturally done it.

I'm now at 27'' at waist, so hip would be about 31'' or 32''

Yes, that's the correct LHC way :)
(And congrats on editing your first post!) :cheese:

I'm 5'6" (ish), and hip for me is somewhere between 32" and 34". Possibly 35". I have to measure again. :)

38" is hip length for me! I have been boosted by this thread! My goal was 39" which I thought would be long enough?? I now know it would be too long for me personally! I have been able to readjust my goal length to 36/37"!! 39" for me is hip length ( just below actually) I know it's only a 2/3" difference but somehow it now feels much easier to attain - am closer to my end goal this afternoon thatn I was this morning!! Yippee!!

I have a big head, not abnormally so or anything, just take a large mens size riding hat etc!! and I am 5'7" with an average length torso. But yes 38 is hip length for me.

hip is 33-34 inches on me,tailbone is 38 inches on me. i'm 5'9" i see others that are smaller with more inches for hip,but i guess i exist mostly out of legs lol

Mine is around 33" to the top of the hip, and I have a relatively short torso. Well, I'm short anyway.. 5'5"

37 inches would be hip for me, I too am 5'6", with a longish body.
But, that means only 10 inches to hip!

Hi onlyforhim & welcome to the forum :) Sorry for the thread hijack, but what is that hair decoration in your avatar? It's gorgeous! As for the OP, I don't actually know where my tape measure is but I would estimate 33" (based on waist being 30" on me), I'm 5'4" :)

SacantRoese
April 25th, 2012, 10:15 AM
Well, I'm 6'0, and have a longer torso. I had a friend help me with a measuring tape and It's around 39'' to my hip bones.

It varies on everyone as far as numbers go. I'd say you measure to hip bone. I'd say roughly on me it would be about 33 inches.

MissManda
April 25th, 2012, 01:21 PM
Hip length on me is 31" and I'm about 5'1". Waist is 26", while the bottom of my tailbone is at 33" or so.

ladylowtide
April 25th, 2012, 01:37 PM
Well I'm 5'5" and looks like hip on my would be around 34-45" but I have a high waist in proportion to my torso.. because waist on me is 30"

Currently BSL at 24"

Singinghoneybee

Hip is at 36 inches on me. I'm not even close to hip at the moment--I'm only at 18 1/2 inches.

Messyhair
May 5th, 2012, 06:10 PM
I looked back at my previous growth photos and the posted lengths, and it looks like hip is about 33" for me (I'm 5'5"). Waist is about 30-31", just for reference.

I'm 5'8" and my waist is at 31", my hip is 35" (I have a long torso).

Cinnamoon

Sunshinelocks: I think the problem is that most people here measure using the LHC method, which means starting the tape measure at the front of your head, at your hairline, and then going back over the top of your head and down. :)

Just measured - it is about 36 inches for me. I am 5ft8 and have a long neck.

Silverbrumby

BSL is 26 for me and hip looks to be around 35. NEVER been at hip and don't think it's possible. Would love to be proved wrong.

eshta
May 6th, 2012, 01:34 AM
Hip is 36" for me, waist was 32". I'm 5'6 with a short to normal torso so I guess I have a long neck and big head :p. I hope to reach hip in early autumn and plan tomaintain there for a while to catch up layers. Maybe I will try to grow longer? Depends on how I will cope with hip length, I have never been there before.

MeowScat
May 6th, 2012, 01:45 AM
I'm 5'6" and at Hip Length. It's 37".

I feel the top of my hip bone in the front and wrap a towel around at that point, that's where I find Hip Length in the back.

I can't wait for Tailbone, but that'll take forever since my hair seems to grow so slow. It's the Hurry-Up-And-Wait game.

:mad:

pepperminttea
May 6th, 2012, 01:53 AM
I'm 5'10" - hip on me is about 38". I measure hip as 'the widest part of you' (and waist as the narrowest), as my actual hip bone measurement is almost the same as BCL which is 40". :)

Phexlyn
May 6th, 2012, 02:56 AM
About 35-36" probably, though I must admit I realised I had had hip length once I was a bit past it because I totally missed the point where my hair started tickling the top of the hip bone ;)

DarkCurls
May 6th, 2012, 03:58 AM
I measure this at my hip-bone -- draw an invisible line around my back frop hip bone to hip bone, at that's hip-length for me. It's about 35" or 36".
I'm at 29" and hip is my goal length... Only 7" to go. :)

Waist is 30" and hip is 34", I am presently 32.5" so only an inch and half to go for me :)

ETA- im 5 foot 6!

Silver Swan
May 8th, 2012, 03:30 PM
Can anyone direct me to a thread or article with specific definitions of the various lengths? I know that waist is 33" on me, but I'm not sure where hip is. . .

If I use the front points of my pelvic bones as my marker, then hip would be about 35". I'm 5"10, and have a long neck.

Arashi
May 8th, 2012, 05:30 PM
I'm 5'6" and I believe hip would be 31" or 32" on me. (for comparison, BSL measures at 21" and waist looks like it will be 28")

It's amazing to me to see all the people with the same height as me but vastly different measurements for waist and hip length! I do have a high waist though, I believe.

I think so - my hair is 34" now and is JUST past waist. Another two inches should be hip. :shrug:


ETA: Yup - I just measured - solid hip is 36"! Using LHC measuring method - front of hairline, over head, down back.

Henrietta
May 10th, 2012, 11:29 AM
For me it's 90 cm (35.5 inches) at hip-bone. The widest part of my torso is higher, though, so my hair will look like being at hip before I reach 90 cm. I am 5.67 feet tall.

LadyKate
May 10th, 2012, 11:56 AM
My hair is at hip right now, which is 33"-34", measured from the front of my hair line, over top of my head and down my back. I am 5'2" with a shorter torso.

The jury is out on my measurements. The first time I measured, I got 30" for waist, 34" for hip.
The second time, several months later, I got 31" for waist, 35" for hip. And now, another month later, I get 29" for waist, 31" for hip. This is ridiculous. I'm trying to get DH to do it for me.

I do have some variations in my height and posture due to lots of back problems. Sometimes I stand visibly tilted to the side, sometimes I'm very straight, and sometimes I have a huge arch. Soo yeah. I'll try again at some point.

Oh, and for reference I'm measuring the LHC way: front of hairline, over head and down the back. I'm considering waist the place it used to be before a weight gain pushed it up several inches--now disguised with a little cushion. :p And I'm calling hip the top of my pelvic bone, which is *usually* 2-3 inches below waist. And I'm somewhere between 5'5" and 5'6".

Hip for me is 32", I am 5'5. I will be spending a LOOONG time in "Hip" region because of how I am shaped. I don't know what I'm growing to... Probably tailbone with no layers just to say I did. That would be a good couple of years before that will be possible.

Yeah, that is the other problem isn't it? Hair shrinkage for the wurly/curly/wavy bunch. Pretty sure I would have to be a solid 42 before it "looked" hip.

About 36" here as well. I haven't really measured it, but a bit less than 33" is waist, so.. it's only possible this way :) I'm 5'7"

Marbid
September 7th, 2013, 08:10 AM
woooooooo...

4ft 11 inches. and I will be giving my length in its natural curly 3c form.... currently 27 inchest at waist length. I have a very short torso, so it wont be fat to hip length... I would guessss 30 or 31 inches for hip length hair.

If I stretch out my strands say... straitened, (it curls when wet so that one wont work) My hair is a solid tailbone length. I think. It's definitely past the lil hips that stick out. But straitened don't matter, because I can only straiten my hair twice a year. So what I count on is the appearance when curly. In which case.... waist....

I'm 5' 6'', and hip is around 33'' on me. 34'' or more would make it comfortable, but 33'' is where I can feel my hip bones (I'm lacking in curves somewhat). Waist is around 30'' on me, and I passed that a few months ago...onwards to hip!
