In measuring girth dimensions, the tape measure needs to follow the girth accurately, i.e. adhere to the body and at the same time not compress the soft tissue. Girth dimensions are determined with the help of a 1,500 mm measuring tape. It is recommended to add an extension loop (e.g. made from a thin string) to the tape measure to facilitate the dimension reading. The tape measure should undergo regular review for accuracy.
