Do you have a long or short torso?

Every body is unique, especially when it comes to understanding body shape. When it comes to torso length, you may fall at either end of the spectrum, or simply lean to one side more than the other.

long or short torso

 

Method 1:

Let's put your measuring tape to work! To determine your torso length, you'll need to measure two lengths. Start by measuring from your underarms down to your waist. You can write this down once you've completed it, so you'll remember it later. Note down the measurement from your waist to your top hip line.

Here’s where the magic happens!

If your first measurement is shorter than your second measurement, you have a short torso. If your second measurement is short, you have a longer torso.

 

Method 2:

Another way to measure your torso length is by standing up and measuring from the crown of your head to the groin, then measuring from your groin to the floor.

A small waist means that the first measurement from the top head to your groin is shorter than the second. 

You have a long torso if your second measurement from the groin to the floor is shorter.

  

Long Torso

Longer torsos generally have a lower hip-line making the torso elongated. Those with longer torso’s generally have a shorter legs in comparison to their torso.  It's important to recognise that your height has no bearing on your torso length.
