Your back length can be found by measuring from your C7 vertebra (the bony protrusion at the back of your neck) to your iliac crest (the top of your hips).
You will need:
Place your hands on your hips and tilt your head forwards.
Ask your helper to measure from the bony protrusion at the back of your neck to where your hands sit on your hips.
This measurement will give you an idea of which back length to choose.
