How much rope you need depends a bit on what types of ties you want to do and who you are tying, but here are a few handy guidelines. Keep in mind that most ties are done with a rope folded in half.
For wrist and/or ankle cuffs: 10-15ft is usually sufficient in most situations of tying wrists and ankles. If you're looking to attach the cuffs to furniture be sure to consider the distance between the limb and your tie-off point when selecting your rope lengths.
For chest ties and hip harnesses: Measure a loop around the fullest part of the hip. You'll need roughly six times the hip measurement of the person being tied.
For full-body harnesses: Measure a loop from the shoulder, down between the legs, and back to the shoulder. Body harnesses will need roughly six or seven times the shoulder-crotch loop measurement.
