    Frame Size

    The topic of small and large boned came up in a different thread. This thread is created for the discussion of all topics regarding frame size. Discuss variations in weight as a result of frame size. Tell us what size bond you are based upon the chart. Discuss all things related.

    http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/e...ages/17182.htm


    Determining frame size: To determine the body frame size, measure the wrist with a tape measure and use the following chart to determine whether the person is small, medium, or large boned.
    Women:
    • Height under 5'2"
      • Small = wrist size less than 5.5"
      • Medium = wrist size 5.5" to 5.75"
      • Large = wrist size over 5.75"
    • Height 5'2" to 5' 5"
      • Small = wrist size less than 6"
      • Medium = wrist size 6" to 6.25"
      • Large = wrist size over 6.25"
    • Height over 5' 5"
      • Small = wrist size less than 6.25"
      • Medium = wrist size 6.25" to 6.5"
      • Large = wrist size over 6.5"
    Men:
    • Height over 5' 5"
      • Small = wrist size 5.5" to 6.5"
      • Medium = wrist size 6.5" to 7.5"
      • Large = wrist size over 7.5"

    Here are measurements for frame size using the elbow: (also a calculator on the site)

    Someone suggested I add the European equivalents, so instead of calculating them all myself I found this page which has both:

    http://www.am-i-fat.com/body_frame_size.html


    Also, the calculator in the second link allows for both types.

    If I did this correctly, I am medium framed - just as I suspected. Besides, it's pretty obvious, looking at me, that I'm neither frail nor heavy boned.

    Funny, no males have done this.

    Anyhow, I'm 191mm on the dot, I am exactly the minimum requirements for having a large frame(I did the wrist one.).
