Waist-to-Hip Calculator
Studies have shown that the shape of your body can be correlated to higher risks for health problems such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. By measuring the ratio of your waist size to your hip sizes, you can use our calculator to determine your body type and levels of risk.

The data used to derive the waist-to-hip results was taken from middle-aged men and women. The calculator may not apply to young children, the elderly, or pregnant women.

Measure Yourself First

To use the calculator, you need current measurements for your waist and hips. So, get out that measuring tape!

When measuring around your waist, measure the narrowest part of your torso. If you can't find it, measure around yourself at your belly button. No sucking in!

To measure your hips, wrap the measuring tape around the widest part of your hips.
