4 Tricks to Finding Your Perfect Fit
Every person needs at least one pair of go-to jeans in their closet. Jeans are a wardrobe essential that can be dressed up or dressed down. To find the perfect fit, consider these four tricks:
1. Know your measurements
Jean sizing varies from company to company. If you know what standard size jeans you normally wear, this may not be enough. You should know your hip and waist sizes in inches. Taking these measurements is easy. To discover your waist measurement, measure around the smallest part of your waist. To know your hip measurement, measure around the fullest part of your bottom.
2. Check the size chart
When you have your measurements in inches, you can use sizing charts to understand what standard sizing you are in a specific brand of jeans. One brand’s 30 may be another brand’s 39, and one brand’s 6 may be another brand’s 8. Knowing your measurements in inches can help you get that perfect fit when you can’t try on jeans in a store.
3. Measure your favorite pair of jeans
If you already have a tried and true favorite pair of jeans in your closet, measure those jeans. Measure around the waist and the hips, just like we mentioned you should do for your own body. You should also measure the inseam and the leg opening. The inseam measurement starts at the base of the crotch and goes all the way down the inner seam to the edge of the hem. This helps you determine the ideal length for your dream denim. The leg opening is the opening circumferences at the end, starting at the side seam. This can help you get the ideal fit at the leg, whether you’re looking for a wide leg jean or a skinny jean.
4. Order multiple sizes
When you order online, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Order the size you think you might be, and then size up or down as well. If you are in between sizes when using a size chart, order both of the sizes you are in between. This way, you can be sure you will get that perfect fit, and you can always return the pair that does not work.
