Determine

**the size of**children's*shoes*. If the dimension of the legs by drawing on the paper seemed to you convincing, try another method, which is suitable for children. Take an ordinary clay and heat it well in hand. Make clay smooth pellet of a rectangular shape. Put the baby's foot on the clay – there will remain a deep clear trail. Measure the length of the footprint with a ruler.4

Table

**size**s*shoes*in Russia, based on the Paris point system. A unit of measurement**size**and in stihah does the length of the insole. To determine**, divide the length of the insole at one bar equals 0.67, see, For example, if a woman has the length of sole is 24 cm, then its Russian****the size***of the Shoe***is calculated as: 24/0,67=35,8 – 36****size***Shoe***size**.5

European

**also count in stihah, but the length of the insole need to add 1 cm seam allowance. In the example, it would be so: (24+1)/0.67=37,3. It's a****size***shoes***size**37 or 37.5. In English and American**size**e*shoes*measure the insole, but in inches. 1 inch is equal to 2.54 see6

There is an additional division

*of footwear*for men, women, children and adolescent. Each system has its own level, taken as zero. In English children's*shoes*zero**size**is 10 cm or 4 inches, and in the U.S. – 9.8 cm refers to the second**size**. Mark on the floor**the size of**a US and UK equal 0,84 cm or 1/3 inch.Note

Shoe size day and night will be different, because by the end of the day, feet usually swell.

# Advice 2: How to measure Shoe size

To pick out comfortable shoes, enough to do a few fittings in the store. However, sometimes you have to do the purchase according to preliminary standards, for example, when ordering goods through the Internet or in the orthopedic salon. In this case, you must specify

**the size**of the Shoe. According to the accepted standards, it will depend on the length**of the foot**(insoles) and its width (fullness).You will need

Taken for calculations of

**the size**and the Shoe is recommended in the evening as by this time one day tired legs can take a bit longer, even pripuhnut. Be sure to wear socks the same thickness that you plan to choose new shoes or boots.2

During measurement , the stop can be glued a large paper or cardboard sheets to the floor with tape. So they won't crawl, and you would prefer to act.

3

Swipe in the center of the sheet smooth vertical line centimeter ruler. At the bottom of the straight draw a perpendicular. The intersection of two lines indicate, for example, point A.

4

Put your right foot next template so that the vertical line ran through the middle

**of the foot**. Point a is the most convex part of your heel. Stand upright on both feet went the same load. Press your thumb to the floor – so you can find out the maximum length**of the foot**.5

Find the place on the foot that will be the most removed from the point A is a point In, located on top of the longest finger. It can be large (the so-called "Egyptian" or "Roman" types, stop), or second (in the "Greek" foot).

6

Insert the upper perpendicular line. The distance between points A and b is the length of the right

**foot**.7

According to this pattern make a pattern for the left foot is necessary as

**the feet**are slightly different from each other in**size**and structure.8

Label width (it is also called completeness)

**of the foot**. To do this, find the widest part of the toe portion of the foot and indicate them by the letters C and D. you can Now circle the foot around the perimeter with a pencil, holding it vertically.9

Measure the distance between points A and b, then C and D. If one leg is greater than another, for you will be important the maximum length and fullness. Remember these numbers and find your

**size**according to the standard table that you can find on the Internet or a Shoe store.10

Study the standards of different manufacturers of footwear. In the international metric system length

**of the foot**is indicated in centimetres; between adjacent**size**AMI manufacturers leave in the interval of 0.5 cm For example, the insole length 22 cm corresponds to**the size**34,5; length 22.5 cm - 35**size**; 23cm - 36, etc. In Europe as a measure of length used stich equal to 2/3, see England and America**size**s are measured in inches, and the intervals between them are made in 1/3 of an inch.11

View, if not specified on the package Shoe measure width. Most manufacturers produce shoes, shoes and boots in narrow, medium and wide fittings. However, these data are not always, more often - hard footwear (ski boots, and skates). From domestic producers, the indices of completeness are numbers from 1 to 12 mm; European – from 1 to 8; American and English, respectively, the letters from A to F. the Interval between

**size**AMI width shoes is 4mm, in most other countries – 5 mm.Note

When trying on shoes make sure that between the end of the longest toe and the toe there is a small space. To do this, stand straight and ask the seller to press hard on the nose. To find out whether tightly the Shoe hugs the instep, shrink boots – part of the top, covering the dorsum of the foot. Shoes should not press; but boots also do not need to diverge widely. Do not forget that natural materials eventually become comfortable.

Useful advice

If you do not have at hand the table size, divide the maximum rate the length of your feet (for example, 26 cm) 2. Then add the result (13 cm) to the original number: 13+26=36 size of shoes, you should try on in the store.

# Advice 3: How to measure waist

Without accurate determination of size difficult to buy or sew something perfectly sitting on the figure. Waist size is not constant because it is affected by any changes in nutrition, physical exertion or condition of health.

Instruction

But if the cm was not there, do not worry – we can take any rigid tape or string, wrap it around your waist and mark the length. Then measure it with any ruler.

3

Sometimes the position of waist is determined based on the position of the navel. If you have a slim waistline and navel on the level is about halfway between the edge of the hip bones and lower ribs, then you can measure there. But keep in mind that the position of the waist of the person depends on its anatomical structure, and it can be slightly above or below. More correctly measure the waist at the narrowest point.

4

The bottleneck in most cases, can visually identify. Stand in front of a mirror, straighten up, and you will see where to place the measuring tape. Just try that it is parallel to the floor.

5

Pull the stomach in conducting the measurements do not need to, because your task is to determine the correct size and not to deceive their own vision or ego. The tape should lie closely, but don't crash into the body. It is necessary, that it could fit two fingers.

6

To determine the exact location of the waist is also using thin elastic. Tie it on the belt, walk a little, bend. And soon it will be where you need it. If you measure the waist in men with bulky abdomen, place a tape measure approximately three centimetres above the edge of the femur, and ahead – at the most protruding point of the abdomen. Tight to pull the tape impossible. This measurement is suitable for the purchase of jackets and coats. If you need to determine the size of the pants, measure the waist at waist level.

Tape attach between the extreme points at the bottom of the belt through the button. The result of the measurement, multiply by two. This will be the waist.
