- Start with a pair of jeans or pants you already have that fit you well and lay them flat on the floor.
- Carefully measure the length from the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg.
- THIS NUMBER IS YOUR INSEAM. Use this number to help you choose your next pair of great-fitting pants.
- Start shopping by your inseam!
If you do not have a pair of jeans or pants that are the correct length for you, get a buddy to help you measure. Using a sewing measuring tape, hold the end with 0 inches right at your crotch seam. Have the other person gently pull the measuring tape straight and read the number (in inches) where you want your new jeans or pants to end.
Tip: Remember to take into account the height of heel you’ll most likely be wearing with the new pair.
