In a MPSIMS thread, I declared that “the waist is at your navel’s height” and got promptly told “is not.”
So, after verifying that my navel and my waist are indeed at the same height, now I’m curious.
The dictionary isn’t very helpful about how to define the waist, all m-w says is “the typically narrowed part of the body between the thorax and hip.” Me, I’m used to considering it as “the point in someone’s torso where that person’s silhouette is narrower, if any.” I think that, based on the other thread, some people make it “the point where someone’s torso has the smallest circumference.”
So if I can get it right, this is a double poll: where is your waist relative to your navel, and how do you define it.
The poll is secret and multiple choice.
