    Yes, if you are measuring a garment. No, if you are measuring your actual hips.

    The method you describe only works if you are as flat as a sheet of paper.

    If you don't have a flexible tape to measure around the hips, use a piece of string, yarn or ribbon, then measure that.

    No. Hip measurement is around your widest part in the hip/rear area.

    Nope. Proper measurement is taken with a tape that goes all the way around
