View Full Version : What would you call this length?

September 4th, 2010, 02:35 PM
What is my length? Look at my photos and tell me if you can, please.:D

I am having a hard time understanding the diff between mid-back, waist, hip and TB length. Can someone explain to me where each of these are at? And of course what length am I at?


This is one of my pics from my album and one of the most recent ones

It's hard to tell from the side. I'm guessing almost waist.

hmm, it's a bit difficult to see where your waist is. Maybe is you took a picture with your frint turned to mirror and putting one hand on your waist, that way it's easier to see if you are at waist or midback:)

From this picture it looks like you are between mid-back and waist.

It's really hard to tell from the picture but from what I can see it looks like you are closing in on waist. You are well past mid back and bsl.

I'd say almost waist length. :)

Waist-land? :)

Almost waist. :agree:

BSL = where your bra strap naturally fall on your back.
Waist = where your waist is the smallest.
Mid-back = the area in between BSL & Waist.
Hip = top of your hip/pelvic bones.
Tailbone = the bottom of your spine(usually right above bum crack I think :o ).

If I'm incorrect, would someone please give the correct answers?

Hope that helps. :flower:

I would say that you are at waist length...

Waist-ish, maybe a couple inches to go and it would be solidly at your natural waist. :)

almost at waist.

I'd say it's "can I call this waist" length:)
About the differences between lengths... Check this out: http://www.ida.net/users/northstr/hairlength.html ;)

I took a look at your album. It would be easier to tell from a photo taken from the back/front, not from the side, but to me you are at waist :)

I'm so glad you posted this! My hair is about the same length as yours - pretty far beyond BSL, but not yet solidly waist.

Waist-ish and Waist-land? LOL! I love it!

What would I call this length? Beautiful. :)

I'd say you're very close to waist, about an inch and a half away.

September 6th, 2010, 11:23 AM
I would call it waist-ish. Lovely hair by the way.:)

I think you are very close to waist too, but its hard to tell from a side pic. :) It looks beautiful though!

Have you seen this chart, it shows where most of the length meridians are.
Here is the chart http://i50.tinypic.com/2449tmd.jpg

It's an awkward photo to judge by, but I'd say that your beautiful hair is quickly closing in on waist.

September 6th, 2010, 02:53 PM
Looks waist or a bit past it to me, your hair looks loooooooooong.

I consider waist where my body dips in, around where my bellybutton is...is that inaccurate?

I would say you are just hitting waist or are quite close to it, also the wig in your signature that you are aiming for in length would be about hip. Hip would be when you pulled your hair forwards it would be at your hip bone if I'm right.
