Weight Chart

Standard weight chart measurements are categorized according to different frame sizes for both women and men. These weight charts are based on statistical averages that had the lowest mortality rate calculated by the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company. They are not absolutes, and should not be taken as medical advice. For example, if you are pregnant or very muscular the weight chart will not be accurate.
