wrap your thumb and longest finger around your wrist. do your fingers over lap, just touch, or not touch at all?

at 5'5" you could be from 110 - 145 weather or not its too much weight more so depends on ones frame size. its just a basic and easy way to see what kind of frame you have. over lapping = small frame, just touching = normal frame, and not touching = large frame.

knowing some ones height and weight really means nothing but if you have an idea of their frame then you can give them a more educated answer for their question.
