How to Measure

Wearing only your underwear and standing with your feet together, use a tape measure to determine your measurements. It's important to check the size chart on the product page of each brand you are considering, as sizes and measurements can vary greatly.

Measure your jeans from the top of the waistband to the bottom of the crotch seam to find the rise. Consult the size chart on any brand product page to see where the rise will sit on your torso.

How to Measure

Low Rise
Waistband sits 2" or more below navel.

Mid Rise
Waistband sits just below navel.

High Rise
Waistband sits at or above navel.

Bend to one side to find and measure the crease of your natural waist, keeping the tape parallel to the floor.
Measure around the fullest part of your seat, keeping the tape parallel to the floor.
To determine your inseam, measure from the bottom of the crotch seam to the bottom of the hem. You may want to have different pairs of jeans hemmed to look best with both flats and heels.
