BMI Calculator for Women

Free BMI Calculator for Females Only

Consistent with the 1985 NIH recommendation

Generally, any standard BMI calculator for people older than 20 years can be used as a BMI calculator for women. As a matter of fact, the calculation of BMI - body mass index for both women and men is carried out according to the same BMI formula. The values of BMI between 18.5 and 25 in the majority of sources are considered as an indication of normal weight both for women and men.

However, the values of BMI for normal weight range and general conception of ideal weight for height itself vary from time to time and country to country. In 1985 the National Institutes of Health (NIH) consensus conference suggested that overweight BMI were considered at a BMI of 27.8 for men and 27.3 for women. According to these recommendations, the value of overweight BMI for women and the value of overweight BMI for men are different and, therefore, BMI calculator for females only is necessary. Our BMI calculator for women is based on these recommendations and overweight for women begins from the value of BMI exceeding 27.3. Our BMI calculator for women is intended for women older than 20 years. If you are younger than 20 years, you must use BMI calculator for Kids.

Note

For the reason that the values of BMI for normal weight range itself vary from time to time and country to country, we think that BMI exceeding the value of 30 is more important. If our BMI calculator for women shows that your BMI is greater than 30, it means that your weight is in the Obesity category and you should consult with your doctor.
