Waist refers to the Circumference around the middle of the torso when it refers to the body measurements.

As an item of clothing, Waist or Shirtwaist is a blouse or shirt.

In the fashion context, 'waist' refers to the narrowest part of the torso between the ribcage and the hips. It is a crucial measurement when it comes to clothing sizing and fit. Here are some examples of how the term is used in fashion:

  • "This dress is designed to accentuate the waist and create an hourglass silhouette."
  • "I need to find jeans that fit my waist and hips properly."
  • "The waistband on these pants is too tight, I need to go up a size."

In women's fashion, the waist is often emphasized with the use of belts, cinched dresses, and high-waisted pants or skirts. In men's fashion, the waist is typically measured for suit sizing and for finding the right fit for pants. In fashion design, waist measurements are used to create patterns and designs that fit well on the body.
