30" here (slightly guesstimated, a little tough for me to gauge waist from the back) , and I'm 5'8".

Waist for me is also 30" and I'm 5' 6".

When I was at BSL, I measured that waist was 31" on me (I'm 171cm, or a smidge over 5'7"). Now that I'm at 30", waist doesn't feel like a full inch away, so I think it's more like 30.5".

Waist length is my goal and it's 32", it seems along way away. I'm 5'10" and the extra 2" come from having a long neck, big head and long waist.

28" at the natural waist/skirt waistband.
30" at waistband of trousers.

I'm just under 5ft 1".

I only have a stiff measuring tape rather than a cloth one so this is a bit imprecise, but I'm around 29 inches at the top of my waist, and I'm 5 foot 7 I think.

Waist as most people see it is 30" on me (5'6")
But for me, real waist was elbow length -- 32" =) weirdo, I know, heh..

Hrm. 30 inches here as well! (5'8")

I guess I feel like my hair is short at waist then because I'm 5'5 and waist is 30" for me as well. 30" feels sooo short to me!

Waist on me is 33" and I'm 5'8" with a large head, short neck and very long back waist length. I used to have to add 1 3/4" when I was making my own clothes.

30" for me as well. I'm 5'7" and pretty short through my lower torso, though, so at 33" I'm well into hip territory.

Waist was about 30" or a teensy bit more for me, and I'm just under 5'1"

It's interesting to me how so many people of different heights all hit waist-length around the same point!

Franny, you are a cute, l'il shorty gal. Very long hair always looks lovely on girls of your height.

(Is this My opinion?)

hrmfaxi, I feel better now that you have posted, lol. Longer to waist than the taller members. I thought I was the oddball. I notice that you have a very graceful long neck though and I too have a very long neck. Perhaps that accounts for some of it.

heck i have a 7" neck thats why BSL is taking so long for me! but 30" seems the avarage , which is strange considering how much different bsl is on people!!

Woohoo, other long-torso'd people! :rockerdud

That said, I'm confused that waist seems to be so close to where I am now... though I guess I was just about waist when I trimmed 3-4" off, so...

I thought I had already posted here but guess not! I also had to add 2 inches when I used to make my own clothes years ago. I am 5'7 3/4" too :) Curly waist for me is going to be about 35 inches so I am thinking pulled straight it will be about 32 but not sure of either of these. I will know when the picture shows it I guess!:D

Now I'm thinking that I'm freakish. Not only is my waist an inch longer than most posting here but I am many inches shorter. I am 5'4" and my waist is 31".

Don't feel bad, Jessie... I'm only 5'4" as well. I measured my hair at 29" this morning, and it looks to be one, maybe two inches above my natural waist. I'm estimating that waist-length for me is between 30" and 31".

Gylfi
March 25th, 2008, 07:53 AM
My waist is around 41" at 6'6". If I were shorter I would be at waist already :( Instead it seems I'll have around another year to wait. But, I could just walk with my head tilted back :)

Áine
March 25th, 2008, 01:19 PM
"Waist" on me was about 33 inches. I am over 176 cm, with a big melon head, long elbows, but high-waisted at about 30 inches.

Going by the look of proportions, it didn't look "right" at 30 inches, so I never really considered it true waist length, the ratio was just so "off" in my eyes. Other people didn't even consider it waist either when I asked. It finally looked better at about 33 inches so that is what I ended up calling waist, even though it was technically on my hip area.

30" at my natural waist-- I have a very short upper torso and I am 5'5.

Angellen

I'm 5'5" and my natural waist is somewhere between 30 and 31 inches. I'm hovering around 32 right now, and hip for my is 34". I'm fairly long waisted. For my torso size, (according to a lot of clothes) my waist should be around 29".

Ashley

Waist length is about 30.3" on me, and I'm 5'9" I think; roughly 1.75m.

Where do you judge waist to be? I always thought it to be where your pants sit but that would be about the same as hip length for most. Above the love handles?

38 inches is waist for me. Im 5'6 but have a long torso and neck. thats almost a years worth of growth difference for me than it seems like everyone else.I must be a freak


*edit* Okay shooo. I measured again ,turns out I was measuring right above the hips, not waist. Its a bit more than 33 in. That makes me feel better. Thats a bit more than average, but not so freakish as I first thought.

As I understand it, waist is supposed to be the narrowest part of the torso. Above the love handles, below the ribcage.

Mine is at 33", and I'm 5'10".

I'm 5 foot 6, my hair is 30" but just brushing waist. I have a reeeaally long back, however. I'm waiting for a couple more inches to solidly claim waist.

I am, however, nearly out of the mid-back abyss!! :)

Waist on me is 33". I actually have a shorter torso for my height (5'8.5") but I my head is larger than most peoples.. I think it's a full 1 &1.5" taller than my sisters who's 5'7".

jesamyn

5'1.5", and vaguely 31"

I'm going to go re-measure at some point, though, as I have always thought that my height (such as it is) was more in my legs. (I absolutely cannot wear petite pants...too short.) Maybe my head is big.

Wow, seems like most people are around 30". Me too! I'm 5'8", and my hair is probably like 1/4th an inch away from being official waist length, though I say it's WL already cuz it probably will be in a few weeks. Now I need to figure out how long until hip length! :cheese:

5'4" just barely and waist will be 29 inches. I'm right in the middle of petite and regular clothes - most petite pants are just a smidge too short and regular pants I can cut yards of fabric off! Plus with pants at every level these days - what is really waist length? I'm using my dress trousers with a standard waist as a guide. Same for bsl - we all wear bras differently.

Eden Iris

I measure waist as 31 inches, and I'm 5'3". To me, waist is the narrowest part of my torso, not necessarily where my pants start.

If I remember right, it was about 27". I am 5'4" tall and have a shortish torso.

birthmarkie

Measure from the front of your hairline, over your head, and down the back. I can't do it myself. :shrug: I have my boyfriend measure, but he doesn't do unreached lengths :( (ETA: I did figure out bra-strap length on myself though...about 25 inches estimated)

5'4" and waist would be 30", I just measured. I have a gigantic head which I think is what skews mine. This is kind of bad, because I can do less updos than it seems like I should be able to at my current measurement. It has to reach too far around my head!

Hi!

Well, if 41 inches is at the bottom of my butt, I guess that means waist would be about 32 inches???

Keep growing!

Faepirate
April 13th, 2008, 03:15 AM
I'm 5'4" and waist for me is about 30" too!

My hair has about another half inch to go until waist but I think of my length as "mid-back" - when I think of "waist-length hair", I think of long hair, and my hair doesn't seem long to me at all. It seems very ordinary! I guess my "waist" mental image is approaching hip in reality. I think I'll be happier to think of my hair as vaguely long-ish when it hits that mark. Which is a long way to go yet.... might be there this time next year!

I am 5' 8" (173 cm) and I found only ways of converting the 85 cm to feet AND inches.. as in 2'9" but I see you all just give measure in inches and I can't seem to understand it!

Hey, don't worry!

1 inch = approximately 2.54 cm

So 85 cm = 85/2.54 = 33.5"

Waist on me seems to be 30" if I stand straight and look directly ahead (I need 2 inches more of unstretched hair to get there) I'm 5'3.

I'm quite surprised that I am the same as taller people, since I'm rather shortwaisted - the straps of tops are often too long, and fall down over my shoulders, and there's only a couple of inches between the bottom of my bra-band and my waist. Maybe my neck's not as short as I thought?

I'm assuming we're measuring from the front center hairline, over the head, and down the back to waist, correct? Measured that way, waist for me comes to 30".

I'm 4'11". I really thought I'd get at least a 3" break on my length to waist, being around 8 inches shorter overall than you, Jojo.

Egads! I knew I had short legs, but this is ridiculous! :thud:

I'm 5'2 with 29" hair - and I consider myself half way between BSL and Waist. I don't have a long torso either... Am I measuring wrong?

I agree with the person who said they don't feel their hair is waist length until it touches their elbows - when I have my hair on my chest, it looks so short to me!
