Measuring Tips

Here are some tips to help you order the correct size. If you don't have a measuring tape, use a piece of string and hold it alongside a ruler.

Waist

Measure around the natural waist, keeping the tape measure taut.

Hips

Stand with your heels together and measure around the fullest part of your hips.

Inseam

Lay your favorite pants on a flat surface and measure from the crotch to the hem. For a shorter inseam, order an Ankle length size. For a shorter inseam and smaller overall fit, order a Petite size. For a longer inseam order a Long length size. For an extra-long inseam and proportionate fit, order a Tall size.

How to measure without a ruler or tape measure?

If you don't have a ruler or tape measure handy, you can try to measure with a standard credit card, which has a width of 3 ⅜ inch or 8.56 cm and a height of 2 ⅛ inch or 5.4 cm.

If you do a lot of online apparel shopping, accurate body measurement using a tape measure is a must. The actual tape you choose doesn’t matter that much. This retractable one is very easy to use, and the fact it uses both CM and IN is extremely helpful.
