Bye denim dramas!


How To Measure

Firstly, you will need a flexible measuring tape for this.


Stand with your feet slightly apart and place the measuring tape above your belly button at the smallest part of your waist.

Relax your stomach then simply wrap the tape around your waist. Make sure to keep the tape snug, but not tight.


This is known as your inseam. Measure on the inside of your leg from crotch to ankle.

Use this measurement to decide how long you would like your jeans and whereabouts you would like them to sit on the ankle.


Once you have these measurements, it is easy to convert from inches to a clothing size thanks to the PrettyLittleThing size guide.


Taking Measurements From Jeans You Already Own

If you have a go-to pair of jeans which you love! Simply take your measurements from them to allow you to find the perfect new pair.

If measuring a pair of jeans you already have be sure to follow these steps:

Lay the jeans completely flat on an even surface and use a tape measure to measure the waist band. Double this number to find your waist measurement.

Remember: waist measurements differ depending on the rise.
