When it comes to buying swimsuits, measurements matter even more. You want to buy just the right one that will accentuate those curves. So, before shopping for a backpack or a swimsuit, what you need to do is measure the torso. You need very specific measurements for this purpose.
The human torso or trunk is the part of body excluding the head, legs, and arms. So technically, the length of the torso extends from hip bone to the knuckle at nape of the neck.
The first two measurements are easy enough. Get a tape measure like the one used by a tailor. First, encircle your bust with the tape, take a measurement and note it down. Next, let the tape encircle your waist and then make a measurement. Note it down. Now comes the torso measurement.
Let the tape measure's endpoint rest on one of your shoulders and then let it extend through the center of the crotch and back on the other side, up to the neck. Make the measurement and note it down. Better take help from a friend for this measurement.
Measuring your torso is a simple exercise. All you need to do is measure the length between the right endpoints to ensure that you get the right swimsuit or backpack.
