    Angry SL to BSL to WL to TB ratios?

    Ok I was just looking at my length to see how much I had grown this month and how much to go before waist length.
    I'm currently at BSL and I thought 'brill only 4 inches!' then I thought 'only 4 inches between my BSL and my waist??' and realised for the first time I have a very waist high line. So then out of curiosity I wondered what the distance was between my waist and my TB, which measures in at a whopping 12 inches.

    So my good mood over only having 4 inches to go has been somewhat squashed by the ratio between the 2 milestones,

    Anybody else had a realisation like this? Or a real treck to go between milestones?

    And just for fun whats your SL to BSL to WL to TB ratios? Add in CL and term if you want It was interesting to find mine out.

    Mines 5:4:12 in inches

    Happy growing

    It sounds really dumb, but I am unable to pin point where my BSL is. Depending on the bra or how I wear it, it changes. I know my wait is 30.5 inch. But BSL... Where was it?

    Don't forget Hip, between the WL and TB...most people on here add that as a descriptor (to make the journey to TB seem not so long, as there is one more milestone in there to hit), although WL and Hip would probably be the smallest ratio for me personally. I have a smaller torso but longer legs...so there are probably fairly small ratios for me.
    Current Length: 47" (Fingertip length), 2b/2c, ii, F/M
    Longest ever achieved: 55.5" (Upper Calf Length)

    from BSL to waist is 4.5 inches for me, then another 6 from waist to tailbone (is that the top of vertical smile?), so yea, a long time to get past waist........
    Am FINALLY at waist (note to self, update siggy pic)... To maintain or to not maintain (keep growing).... that is now the question

    Hi everyone! I am new to posting here, but I have been a lurker for quite some time. I just haven't made any comments because I feel totally inept where my hair is concerned, and I always figured nobody would want hair advice from me. But I've decided to bite the bullet and start contributing!

    My measurement ratios are as follows: SL to BSL= 9.5", BSL to WL=5", WL to HL=2.5", and HL to TB= 4.5"

    For me, the most difficult part of this journey is having such a long torso, because I am quite tall. My coworker and I both decided last year to grow our hair out, and we both now have hair that skims the tops of our brastraps. However, she is only 4'11" and I am 5'10". Needless to say I have a much longer way to go to reach WL! Bottom of BSL for me is over 27", waist is 32", hip is 34.5", and TB is 39-40". And not to be crude, but I am on the busty side and have to wear an 'industrial strength bra' so at 25" I am barely skimming the top of my brastrap, with over 2" to go to reach the bottom! Boo!
