4. Stand up. The sit bones should have imaged themselves on the cardboard.
5. Take a marker and outline the prints and then mark the middle of each print.
6. Take a ruler and measure the distance (middle to middle).
7. Add the factor of your sitting position (see pic below +0, +1, +2, +3, +4cm) to the measurement.
The result is your SQ Lab saddle size.
If you are between two numbers always round up.

How to measure the sit bones at home

3. Sit on it and arch your back while pushing down on your toes this will push the sit bones further out pull yourself down to increase pressure.
