To determine the natural height of your arch you need to be seated. Once seated, cross one leg over the other. Next, grab the ball of your foot with one hand and your heel with the other as depicted in the image below.
Very gently, push the ball of the foot and heel together. The resulting curvature in your arch is its natural shape. The natural shape of the arch could be high, medium or low and has nothing to do with having flat feet. A person can have any given arch height and still have flat feet (over-pronation) when they stand up. The natural arch height is the height of the arch when the foot bears no weight.
If you have a high arch then you should select from the arch supports recommended for people with high arches. If you have a medium arch then you could select from the entire collection of arch supports on this website. If you have a low arch then you should select from the arch supports recommended for people with low arches.

It is important to understand your own natural arch height when buying arch supports. Arch supports that are lower then your natural arch will not give your feet much support and won't be of much benefit. Arch supports that are much higher then your natural arch will feel uncomfortable from the start and remain uncomfortable, even after the manufacturers recommended breaking-in periods.
