    To measure your waist:
    1: First find your natural waist. This is the point between your lowest ribs and your hip bones. Easy to identify by placing your hands on your hips.
    2: Place the tape around the waist line.
    3: Relax your tummy by breathing out gently and do not tuck in. adjust the tape so that it is level around your waist line and measure.
    4: Remove the tape and record your result.

    Alas sizes for women just aren't that simple. Different cuts and different manufacturing methods will mean that a Size 14 in one shop may be significantly different from a Size 14 from another. I have a friend who managed to buy a Size 8 pair of trousers in one shop, but came up a Size 14 in another, which goes to show the silly levels of variation between suppliers.

    Roughly (and I'm going on measure hundreds of items a week for Ebay) it seems to average out at
    Size 16 - 32-34"
    Size 14 - 30-32"
    Size 12 - 28-30"

    there seems to be a jump though as
    size 18 - 36-38"
    size 20 - 38-40"

    and that's on items worn literally on the waist not slightly lower like a lot of skirt & trousers.
    As said above it differs not just from shop to shop but different items in the same shop!
