How to Select a Proper Fit for Casual Trousers

Selecting the proper fit for casual trousers affects both comfort and appearance. As with most types of trousers, casual trousers that fit too tightly can cause discomfort in the sensitive parts of the body and appear unprofessional. On the other hand, loose fitting casual trousers present a sloppy appearance. Men and women shopping for casual trousers should learn casual trouser sizes and how to measure for the proper fit.

Two numeric size categories fall within one letter size categorisation, so women can choose amongst the six letter size categories of XS, S, M, L, XL, and XXL. Although the size categories vary between men and women, the way men and women measure to find the proper casual trouser fit does not differ.

 

How to Measure for Casual Trousers

Be sure to use a tape measure that includes centimetres. For the waist, take a measurement around the slimmest area. The slimmest part of the waist is typically across the small of the back, where the body bends from side to side. For the hip measurement, use the tape measure around the fullest part of the hips to ensure the proper fit. Use the tape measure to measure the inseam from the crotch to the bottom of the leg.

 

Casual Trousers Shopping Tips

Fashion experts recommend that men and women measure their hips, waist, and inseam every time they purchase casual trousers. It is less expensive to hem casual trousers that are too long than to alter baggy a baggy waistline. The material for a pair of trousers can influence fit. Cotton can shrink around the waistline after frequent spins in a washing machine and polyester can wrinkle along the inseam.
