The key to a well-fitting pair of jeans is measuring your body properly (and of course trying the jeans on). If you are shopping online (and can't try the jeans on), body measurements are extra important. Let us show you how to measure, and then use the size chart below to determine your jeans waist size:
Measure Jeans Waist Size:
Measure around your natural waistline (circumference). Your waistline is usually just above your belly button (narrowest part of torso). Still not sure where your waist is? Stand in front of a mirror, and bend to one side. Your waistline is simply where you can see a natural indentation in torso on this side. Take a relaxed measurement, and keep the measuring tape parallel with the floor. Make sure to actually measure your body, and not over your clothes. Use your measurement to determine your jeans waist size from the size chart below.
