Body Proportions

The following tables where adapter from Annie Richards website "The Birth of Venus - Articles and Information", which is no longer with us :(, with her permission by me. Her source was "...derived from a US Army sponsored study done in the 1970s(?)...".

Enter a height in decimal then select the units to use, to see how your measurements would be proportioned as Female and Male.  
For example a height of 5' - 7" could be enterd as "67" Inches, or "170.18" Centimeters.  
The results should be good for males 5-0 to 6-4 or females 4-8 to 5-11, this covers about 99% of people.  
For female and male comparisons 5-0 to 5-11 which is the female/male overlap.
