I was reading the forums and one post said that hip length starts at the top of your hips, not, as I supposed, at the widest part of the hips. Then there's tailbone length. Here is a quick picture taken in front of the mirror this afternoon. I'd call this waist length. What do you think? Can someone set me straight as to exactly where these measurements begin and end?

I think generally hip length is considered to be where the hip bones are. Tailbone is where the tailbone ends (you'll have to feel around your derriere for this one since everyone has different skeletal structures) :)

OK, so it's where the tailbone ends and not where it begins. It looks like I'm at waist length and heading toward hip bone length. My hair gets caught in the loops of my jeans when it's down and I'm putting a belt on.

Can you take photo from the back, with your hands on your waist or hip bones (or one on both)? This would make it easier to say where you are at now.

This photo looks like your hair'd be brushing your hip already.

I'm not sure I could do that in front of the mirror, but could try.

You look like you are at hip from the front!
Waist is the smallest part of your torso, usually at the base of your bottom rib.
Hip is at the top of the hip bones.
In the back you could be longer than hip.

Stand with your back to the mirror and your camera on your shoulder....or on top of your head.

All torsos are all different, but I have BCL and my hair does not look as long as yours in the front!

It takes a while to upload pictures from my old camera to the computer. It's working at it...slowly.

OK, I know my hair needs combing out, but here's the length:

Thank you, Groovy Granny.

I have an area with lots of broken hairs from tying back my hair at the nape of my neck with metal clips before joining this board, but that is growing out.

Umm, yes. It's about there, but not to the bottom of the tailbone yet.

YAY!!!

Thank you for telling me to take pictures from the back. It's gotten longer than I realized from just looking at it from the front. And thanks for the compliments. It's getting there. :)
