I measure in:
Very tapered fit
Very loose fit
Measure around waist just above trousers waistband, at the height you normally wear trousers (usually just above your hipbone). Measure exactly, to a tightness you would feel comfortable wearing -allow room for one index finger between the tape and the body for proper fit. Do not measure over belt or waistband. (FIT TIP- Another way is to take one of your best fitting pair of trousers and measure around trousers waistband from center of button to far end of buttonhole.)
Stand with heels together. Measure around hips at widest point of seats. Hold the tape sufficiently easy - allow room for one index finger between the tape and the body. Make sure your trouser pockets are empty before applying the tape measure.
Measure from top of waistband in the front, passing tape through your legs and pulling comfortably at the crotch, to top of waistband in the back. Total measurement is your rise.
Have standard dress shoes on at this step, and adjust trousers to waist position you normally wear trousers. At your side, start tape from top of waistband and measure down to where you want the trousers to fall or break. Remember to measure to the bottom of the desired length, even if you intend to have cuffs. If you are not wearing shoes then measure to the floor. (FIT TIP - The length should be long enough so that the trousers bottoms touch the shoe all the way around.)
Keep trousers in the same position as in taking trousers length. Measure from the crotch seam down to length desired, following the inside leg seam of your trousers. Make sure you measure down to the same point as for trousers length. (FIT TIP - Another way is to take a pair of trousers with the correct length for you, then measure from bottom of trousers leg up along the inside leg seam all the way to the crotch.)
Measure around the width of your trousers thigh at the widest point possible, which should be a couple of inches below the crotch. Measure the circumference over your trousers. (FIT TIP - Another way is to lay the trousers flat, with the front and back creased smooth. Measure across the width of trousers thigh and double the measurement.
Place the measuring tape at the top of your waistband. Measure down to the middle of your kneecap.
Measure around the width of your trousers knee. Measure the circumference over your trousers. (FIT TIP - Another way is to lay the trousers flat, with the front and back creased smooth. Measure across the width of trousers knee and double the measurement.
Measure around the width of your trousers bottom. Measure the circumference over your trousers. (FIT TIP - Another way is to lay the trousers flat, with the front and back creased smooth. Measure across the width of trousers.
