Measure around waist at navel height. Take measurement firmly, so that kilt may sit comfortably without falling down. Do not breath in or hold your breath.
B) Seat Measurement
Measure around the broadest part of the seat/hips. This measurement should be taken with 2 fingers inside the tape to avoid it being too tight.
C) Kilt Length
You will need someone to assist with this measurement. Stand with your feet comfortably apart and have your assistant measure from the top of your hip bone (approximatly level with the navel), to the top of the knee or mid knee as desired. It is personal preference as to where you would like the kilt to sit but as a general rule the kilt should not sit above or below the knee cap.
D) Full Height
This is a useful measurement to help validte the Kilt Length measurement.
