How to measure - Womens Waist
Take this measurement based on your selected rise, whether it be high, mid or low-rise. This is where your jeans will be sitting around your waist.
Be sure to take your measurements in front of a mirror. Hold your thumb between the measuring tape and your waist (check the video to see how it’s done). Mark this point on your waist with a pen. This will come in use for measuring your outer seam/waist to floor measurement.
How to measure - Womens Outerseam
Take this measurement from where you took your waist. Starting from the point you have marked (see pro tip), let the measuring tape fall to the ground – measure from your waist to your knee, and then knee to floor.
Make sure you keep the tape straight when you are taking both measurements. See video!
