    How To Find Your Right Jeans Size

    Shape Of The Leg: When you go for jeans shopping, always look for the shape of the leg. It’s the shape of the leg that gives you different types of fits. Common fits include: skinny, regular, slim, boyfriend and straight. Legs can be straight or tapered, and always try on new jeans before purchasing it.

    The Rise: Distance from the crotch joint to the top of the waistband is known as the rise. There are four types of rises: low rise, mid rise, drop crotch, and high rise.

    The Length: The length is the measurement of the inseam, starting from the crotch to the leg opening. While trying jeans, make sure the front of the hem should rest on top of your instep, and the back would kiss the floor. 

    The Deni: When it comes to jeans, make sure what type of denim you are buying- with or without stretch. If you want to buy skinny fit then go for the stretched jeans. But for regular and loose fits, go for loose denim.

    TIP: If you want to buy skinny fit jeans, always look out for elastane percentage. If you don’t want your jeans to get loose after some time, then make sure your jeans have 3 percent elastane.
