Could someone describe it more thoroughly please, all that I know is that it is probably some type of hair length?

So that would be a few inches below the shoulders?

The actual measurement in inches of cm is different for everyone based on body proportions and height. I'm at 20 in. right now, and I'm an inch from APL. It's really just a matter of when you're hair starts getting stuck in your pits when you wear your hair down and a tank top. :D

Correct. It's the part where the arm meets the shoulder, and often the source of deodorant marks on hair. :)

You're quite welcome! The entire article section is worth poking around in. It's a plethora of information--and accessible to everyone. :)

My hair is pretty much APL. As seen in my shiny new avatar.

Couldn't we pick a more...appealing body part than armpit?

Ah, but it's a useful demarcation!
Some people use "bottom of shoulder blade" length. Perhaps that might suit you better?

We already voted on "Sacral Length" in another thread.

Or you could call armpit "axilla".

Not to be confused with maxilla, which would be quite a few inches higher. (Thank you 10th grade anatomy!)
