  • Imogen, I met you last year at the DC, AICI conference, and follow your posts. I’m new to this and find your videos very helpful. I have a couple of questions:
    1 – Does measuring body proportions differ for petite women? I’m 5’3″ and 105 pounds. Based on the 7 section measurement, I’m short torso and short legs. I’m thinking everything is relative to proportion, so maybe the rules do not differ for petite people.
    2 – Your video shows you measuring your head to chin, but can’t tell if you have the tape measurement curved around your face. If so, that adds length, and shouldn’t it be deduced?
    3 – Are there different rules to measure men?
    Thanks so much!
