We know the struggle of not finding jeans with the perfect fittings. Spending a lot of time trying different jeans at the store is a mood breaker. 

Chances are, you might find jeans that fit your waist, but does it fit well with your thigh, knees, and legs?

Waist size is not the only thing to consider in buying jeans. Measuring your waist, thigh, hip, and inseam are the best way to find the one for you.

Different Sizing Method

Many people think that the size of their jeans from one brand is enough to use as a reference ALL THE TIME.

Purchasing a size 30 in one brand will not meant that you are a size 30 in another brand.

If you find your new jeans tight or loose, don’t blame it on the jeans.

Brands have their unique way of judging sizes and dictating which fit is right for their target audience.
