I have been asked to write up a jeans size chart on numerous occasions, but it’s been one that I have found quite difficult to do, simply due to the inconsistency of sizing in different jeans based on the materials, cuts, details and stretch factor. Some brands I can actually own jeans in 2 or even 3 different sizes. The way I thought I could put this together though (to be as accurate as I can make it) would be to list my measurements of myself and then list the general sizes that I am in different brands. If those sizes vary, it will be based on the smaller size being a jegging most likely.
Ok, so my general and average size in jeans is size 27 waist. I usually pick that and it fits me perfectly, however on occasions I need to go down to a 26 or up to a 28. I do include measurements of jeans in my reviews that I do now, as requested, so hopefully those help you as well in terms of fits and sizing. I haven’t tried every single brand out there, so some are left blank. If you guys have tried them and know the brand well in terms of sizing, please comment and let me know so we can hopefully make the chart full!
