How Do I Measure My Pant Size?

To measure your pant size, use a tape measure to measure along the natural crease of your waist and your inseam. Take the measurements in your underwear for the most accurate results.

  1. Find the natural crease of your waist

    Bend to the side, and stop when the skin around your waist forms a crease.

  2. Measure your waist

    To take your waist measurement, wrap the tape measure around the crease loosely. Measure the rise by placing one end of the tape measure at the front of the waist and running it between the legs until it reaches the corresponding spot in the back.

  3. Measure your inseam

    To determine your inseam measurement, run the tape measure along the inside of your leg from your crotch down to your ankle.

  4. Consult a size chart

    Compare the measurements to size charts to determine your correct pant size.
