FRAME SIZE

If you have always wondered what size frame you are, here is the method the insurance company used. This will be easier with the help of a friend.

  1. Extend your arm in front of your body bending your elbow at a ninety degree angle to your body. (your arm is parallel to your body).
  2. Keep your fingers straight and turn the inside of your wrist to your body.
  3. Place your thumb and index finger on the two prominent bones on either side of your elbow, measure the distance between the bones with a tape measure or calipers.
  4. Compare to the medium-framed chart below. Select your height based on what you are barefoot. If you are below the listed inches, your frame is small. If you are above, your frame is large.
