Abstract: Let $ M$ be a smooth compact hypersurface with positive sectional curvatures in $ n$-dimensional euclidean space. This paper gives a sufficient condition for $ M$ to lie in the spherical shell bounded by concentric spheres of radius $ 1 - \epsilon $ and $ 1 + \epsilon $. This condition is satisfied, in the case where $ n = 3$, if the Gaussian curvature or the mean curvature of $ M$ is sufficiently pointwise close to one.
