VC can be a short plant, but collecting circumference measurements at the base is an example of poor judgment. 100 cm is the standard but if your plants flower below that height, then I would chose a different "standard height" but not at the base.

As far as a plant falling into the group of 'equal or greater girth at a lesser height', I would interpret that as healthier & less stressed.
