Have you ever thought of purchasing jeans online? Many people have not, because they are used to trying on the jeans and checking fit in the mirror. This is of course impossible when purchasing online. But, if you have a tape measure and take five important measurements, you can buy online and be confident that your jeans will fit.

Having a friend help you with this process is helpful, but not required. Take your tape measure, and remember when taking measurements to hold the tape slightly loose. Take the following measurements:

1. Upper waist. First, loop the tape around the smallest part of your waist. It will likely be higher than where your jeans will actually sit. Although your waist measurement will not be where your jeans waist will sit, it is still used to determine the size of the waist on the jeans. If you take the measurement at the actual point where the jeans will hit, your waistband will probably be too loose.

2. Lower waist: This is a tricky measurement, as most of us don’t know where our ‘lower waist’ is. If you figure where high waisted waist jeans hit, and where low rise jeans hit, aim for directly in between these two points and measure there. It will be just below the point of your hip.

3. Bottom width: For most women, figure that this is going to be a few inches bigger than the waist measurement. Use the tape to measure around yourself at the widest point of your hips.

4. Thigh width: Take this measurement around the widest part of the thigh.

5. Inseam length: This measurement is not taken on the body. Using a pair of jeans that fit you perfectly, measure the length of the inner leg from the crotch seam to the bottom of the cuff. You can lay the jeans flat to do this, as this can make it easier.

Now you are ready to buy the jeans. Once you are on the jeans site, add an inch to each of the measurements provided on the site as guidelines for what size to purchase.

Sizing should be fairly easy to figure out. Different countries use different sizing schemes, but in general if you know the country of origin for the jeans, you can figure out which sizing they will be using. Jeans made in the United States will probably use US sizing, and so on.

My other passion is discussions on a quality inventory system. You can read my articles at
