Have you ever felt hard to choose the perfect fit denim pants on you??
Sometimes the denim pants that we choose is not fit on us, maybe it’s bigger than our size or even it’s smaller than our size.
So, what should we do to get the perfect fit denim pants?
Hopefully this article will help you to find the best fit on you, Let’s check this out! 😀
Buying the right size pair of denim can be much easier said than done, especially since not all brands size their denim identically. However, learning how to size a pair of denim and compare the information you get to your own measurements can allow you to make a smart choice and wind up in comfortable, great-looking denim. Best of all, most of these sizing techniques work for both women and men (exceptions are noted in the article).
Buying the Right Pair
Pick a pair of denim that closely matches your measurements. Once you know your own measurements and you know how to find the measurements for a pair of pants, it’s not hard to narrow down your selection of pants to the few pairs that fit you best. If possible, try to pick a pair whose measurements never differ by more than an inch (2.5 centimeters) from your own.
Always try on your denim before buying. Once you’ve made this mistake once, you’ll never make it twice: always try on denim before you pay for them. Even a pair of denim that looks perfect on paper may not fit comfortably once you actually try them on. One reason for this is that different manufacturers use different standards for their sizes — some designers can even differ from the “actual” measurements by a matter of inches. In addition, some materials (especially elastics, etc.) feel more comfortable to wear tightly than others. For these reasons, you’ll never want to buy a pair of denim just because they seem like they’ll probably fit you without making sure.
- If you’re shopping online, trying pants on before you buy them is unfortunately impossible. In this case, you may want to read customer feedback and reviews to get a sense for how the pants fit (e.g., whether they’re unusually tight in the thighs, sit low on the waist, etc.) You may also want to consider buying from retailers with generous return policies for online sales so that, if worst comes to worst, you can get your money back and buy a different size.
Keep in mind that denim stretch slightly. Unless they shrink in the wash, most pairs of denim are at their tightest the first time you wear them. With the stresses from repeated wearing, most denim loosen up slightly over time, becoming more comfortable to wear (Some people call this process “breaking in” a pair of denim.) This may affect your purchase — if a pair of denim feels just ever-so-slightly too tight when you try them on, you may be able to get away with wearing them in the long run.
- Some tailors even recommend buying denim that are 1/2 inch (about 1.25 centimeters) too small for you so that they will fit perfectly once they’re broken in. Note, however, that this is somewhat dependent on the quality of the material.
- Keep in mind also that different brands of denim almost always fit and stretch slightly differently. One online fashion source ranks common jean brands as follows (from tightest to loosest):
- H&M, Calvin Klein, Alfani, Gap, Haggar, Dockers, Old Navy
Consider having your pants tailored. Not happy with the fit of your denim? By enlisting the services of a professional tailoring service, you can make sure that your denim fit just right. There are two ways to do this: by visiting a tailor’s shop in person with your denim or by using an online made-to-order jean seller (like for instance, madetoorderdenim.com). The former option is virtually guaranteed to get you the correct fit, while the latter is more convenient but is susceptible to your own measurement errors as well as the manufacturer’s.
- Denim weren’t traditionally the sort of garment that would usually be brought to the tailor, but you don’t need to worry about bringing your denim in for tailoring today — designer denim can easily cost hundreds of dollars, so it’s best to make sure they fit.
When in doubt, use a size chart. Jean sizes — especially for women — are notoriously difficult to get just right. If you need help figuring out exactly which pair of denim is best for you, try consulting a jean size chart (you can find a good one for women here and a good one for men here.)
- To use a size chart, find your measurements on the chart, then read across to the left to determine which size you need. For example, using the first chart suggested above, if we had about a 31 inch waist, a 43 inch hip, and a 25 inch thigh measurement, we’d be about right for a size 14 pair of denim.
- Always try denim on before purchasing them. Not all brands size the same way, and there is always the possibility of discrepancies in sizing from one brand to the next.
- In addition, note that some brands use “vanity sizing,” especially around the waist. In other words, a pair of denim with a 35 inch waist may be marked a 33 or 34 to make the wearer feel better about his or her jean size.
- Some Denim shrink when you wash them and stretch after you’ve had them on for a while. Your perfectly-fitting denim might be uncomfortably tight after washing, but if you can squeeze into them, you should be able to breathe normally within a few hours!
