Hip Spring: 7" (measured 2" down from the bottom edge of waist tape)

Your torso is less than 9" in height, and your ribcage and hips are fairly balanced. Those with a longer torso can wear this corset as well, fashioned as a wide belt.
You have a prominent lower tummy pooch (aka "mother's apron"), as this corset is very short and will not fully cover the lower abdomen unless you are very petite or have a short torso. People with hips that are 10+ inches greater than their waist measurement may find the lower edge of this corset narrower than is most comfortable for them.
