Un-Waisted Ratio

Listener Kristin Carlisle shared this tip with us:

I heard your question about your waist being a multiple of the size of your thumb: of this I’m unsure, but my late sister always checked to see if a pair of pants she was considering buying would fit, by measuring them around the circumference of her neck.  If the pant waistband sides met, the pants would fit!

Have any of our other listeners tried this technique? Let us know!
