The most classic way to take measurement. You can simply measure your body with the help of our guideline for that perfect fit.
Helpful tips for perfect measurement
- Take a loose measuring tape – it could be cloth or plastic but a tape which is flexible and not carpenter tape.
- Be careful to measure using the beginning of the tape and keep it firm.
- Wear fitted clothing for taking the measurements – such as tights, cycling shorts, leggings, jeggings.
- Measure your body accurately – do not make any additions or deductions to your body measurement while specifying here. Based on the fit selected (comfort, skinny, bootcut, etc) designer will make appropriate changes to the measurement to give the perfect fit.
- If you need to provide any specification with respect to your measurement (for example you want your actual jeans bottom, or thighs or hips to be of a particular size only) provide it in additional instruction column.
- It will save you time if you note the measurements on a piece of paper first and then fill it all together. This is important as in case the details are lost while feeding on the site, you still till have them on paper.
- A friend or relative may also help you take your body measurement.
- Do not provide any measurement from any label size of any of your garment.

Measure the circumference at the place where you will actually wear your jeans. Your waist measurement will be the entire circumference of the area where your jeans will rest. So if you want a low, mid or high waist jeans you will measure the low, mid or high waist circumference and not your natural waist.
While measuring, position the tape very close to the body without tightening.
Wear a belt or rope around the place where you want your jeans to rest so that it will also help you to measure your length and crotch. You can also use a marker to highlight your waist line where you want to rest your jeans.
Measure from the back of your waistband (taken while measuring your waist), down and around, up to the front of your waistband – basically starting from the top of the back waist line and wrap around the measuring tape between your legs and take it all the way to the top of the front waist line. Please consider the waist line as provided above, for calculating the crotch.
First take the waist line taken for measuring your waist (calculated above) as the base. Measure the side of your leg from the waistline. Keep the tape parallel to your leg and let it flow free to the floor. This will be the outer length of your jeans. You can take this measurement either bare footed or wearing your shoes depending on your preference. Note: measure this to where you prefer your jeans to end on your ankle. If you prefer your jeans to be rolled at the bottoms, please include that in the order notes.
