Length from elbow bone to wrist joint

Did you know that the length of your inner elbow bone to your wrist line is the size of your shoe size? Take a measuring tape and try it out. You'll be amazed.

    I actually did know that, a holdover from art classes long ago. Just like your eyes being in the middle of your head, they are the same distance from the top of your scalp to the bottom of your chin.

    Same length indeed!
    Did you know this: when you need to buy socks and you don't know you size, make a fist. When the length of the sock fits around your fist from heel to toe, it's your size.

    I'm not sure whether this is accurate but it works for me that your arm span (finger tip to finger tip) is equal to your height.

    I did know about the foot / arm link, it's clever stuff.
    More tips from art class;
    Your height is 9 times the length of your head
    The top of your ears are in-line with the top of your eyes, bottom of ears in line with bottom lip.

    By the time I tried all this out, it looks like a one person game of Twister!

    Ha,ha.. I'd heard of that 'sock thing' years ago...I think my Mum taught me that one.
    I still can't get Ladies' socks to fit Ladies' shoe size 10, though!I always have to get Mens':-(

    I can see I'm going to have to adopt the nun's prostrate ( or, as many people call it..'Prostate!) position and get my son to measure my arms from finger tip to finger tip, to determine ny height measurement!
    I'll have to explain to him first, that I'm not doing a penance, nor thinking of joining a Nunnery! LOL

    ... and we all know that old chestnut about why women can't park, don't we...based on a measurement given to us by our menfolk?
