    Default What is the 'body marker' for MBL?

    Hi all I was thinking about how long my hair will be in x amount of months/years (like I'm sure we all do), and I was getting a little bit upset that there is such a long way's between BSL and waist. Then I remembered the length between them, MBL! If BSL is when your hair covers the bottom of your bra band, and waist is when it touches the narrowest curve of your torso, where is MBL? Is there a specific body marker for it, or is it kind of a no man's land between BSL and waist?

    MBL is the widest part of your torso, perhaps an inch or so from the bottom of BS or the sixth rib.

    If that's true then on me MBL is pretty much like half an inch/an inch above my waist. seems so little! i thought there would be more space between MBL and wasit.

    I read that MBL is pretty much unofficial. People just use it to describe the mid-back abyss between BSL and Waist.

    I don't know what it is officially, but for me it's always just been my way of saying I'm somewhere between BSL and waist. I hate how vague it is, lol!
    My goal is now.

    That's helpful, Lady Neeva. Looks like it's two inches from the bottom of BSL for me - so I'll be at MBL by springtime. Hooray!

    Hmm. I don't really understand that My shoulders are the widest part of my torso, and it gradually slims until waist, which is the narrowest part of my torso. Then after my waist, my body gets wider until my hips. By this definition, MBL would be somewhere around APL (which of course, doesn't make sense). Perhaps I'm a mutant

    I have hourglass shape, so the widest part of me is either my hips or my shoulders...

    In my head MBL is all the space from BSL to waist. For me it was a long way too (like 4 inches) but for some people it's only a couple of inches or even less. It depends on your proportions/height etc. But yeah, once you get past BSL you are MBL in my book.

    Exactly! I suppose it's the area between BSL and Waist. So vague, oh well
