View Full Version : SL to BSL to WL to TB ratios?

December 11th, 2009, 06:49 AM
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 :D It was interesting to find mine out.

Mines 5:4:12 in inches

Happy growing :D

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. :rolleyes: 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.

For me, BSL was 26, Waist is 30, Hip is 32 and TBL is 36

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........

December 11th, 2009, 11:26 AM
it will be 11,8:5,9:4,7
:ponder: just realised I have a long way to go !

BSL: 26
Waist: 31
Hip: 35
Tailbone: 37
Classic: 43
Fingertip: 48
Knee: 55.

Yeah, I'm short-waisted with long legs.

For me, BSL was 26, Waist is 30, Hip is 32 and TBL is 36 exactly the same for me too, apart from my hips are an inch further, I am also just under 5 foot 7

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!

I actually almost posted something like this myself. Fun to see everyone's body/length ratios.

here are mine
BSL 23in
WL 29.5
Hip 31
TB 33.5
Classic 42
Knee 51
feet 69
I am short....with short everything...I do have a low waist however :)
The last 3 were interesting to get on my own, so give or take an inch or 2 on those

As per my boyfriend's measurements
BSL - 25.5 inches
Waist 30 inches
Hip 33 inches
We didn't measure tailbone, but classic is 42 inches.

I'm short, but kinda odd as my waist is rather long but my legs are short (hence the reason I'd probably stop growing my hair at tailbone or so). It'd look funny with my short legs otherwise. xD

my measurements are:
WL- 32in.
TBL- 36.5in.

SL to BSL, a difference of 9.5in.

BSL to WL, a difference of 6.5 in.

WL to TBL, a difference of 4.5in.

No idea, but I did not realize until this thread how depressingly long this will take. :(

December 12th, 2009, 07:04 PM
Mine is about: 5:7:8 I'm long waisted, in case anyone is curious.

December 12th, 2009, 07:45 PM
measuring per LHC reccomandations....starting at front hairline and over the head and down...*all measurements are appromixate, Its hard to measure on yourself, lol

SL: 16"
APL: 20"
BSL: 23"
WAIST: 32"

Up and over measurements (inches):

SL: 18

BSL: 26 (I had to check that a few times)

W: 32 (Oh, I guess I've passed the waist milestone then. I'm currently somewhere around 34.)

TB: 40.5

So, using my mad math skills (haha)...

It looks like I'm in for a long haul for a while.

Here's mine.

SL: 18
BSL: 26
Waist: 31
Hip: 36
TB: 39

I just remeasured everything for this, and apparently I've grown - my waist measurement's increased by an inch since I first joined LHC.

SL: 19"
BSL: 27"
WL: 30"
Hip: 33"
TB: 37"

So th SL to BSL ratio is pretty close to 2:3, BSL to waist is 9:10, waist to hip is 10:11 and hip to TB is pretty close to 11:12.
