Downs Designs Dreams :: How to Measure

Follow the guide lines provided to measure hip and inseam. Then, review the size charts and drawings to find the closest size and style to your measurements.

How to measure Hip 
*This is the most important measurement*

To get the best fit of your loved one, we would need the following information: 

1) A hip size, taken around the widest part of the hip (butt) area, as shown here:

2) Does your loved one like to wear their jeans above or below their belly? We have styles to accommodate both!

3) Inseam measurement from inside crotch to floor.

Downs Designs Dreams - How to measure Hip

We also have a Try-On Service where we send out at least 2 pair to you, unhemmed, so that you can try them on your loved one and see which fits best. The jeans come to you with full instructions and a prepaid shipping label, so there is no return shipping costs. We then custom hem at your desired length.

Free Phone Consultation

If you have looked at our diagrams on how to measure and still have questions on how to order, just give us a call with your questions and we’ll walk you through every step of the way. We may even ask you to send us photos.

Are you familiar with our exclusive “Try-On Service”? When you place your first order we will send you two pairs of jeans to ensure the best fit. We will also save your individual measurements for use on your future orders. You will never have to worry about ordering the wrong size.

Please note: Age is not the determining factor when selecting which pant style to choose. Review all the size charts and drawings to find the nearest style and size. Also, each pair is hemmed to order so rolling up pant legs will become a thing of the past.
