Waist: Your waist is located just below the belly button. Our jeans are mid rise model. Bonus tip: don't use the measuring tape as a corset, keep it loose and comfortable so you can breathe. 

Hips: This is the widest part of your torso. It's often in line with the base of your zipper.   

Inseam: This one is hard to do alone. Call your girlfriend, mother, friend, boyfriend, or just a friendly neighbor. Tell them to hold the end of the measuring tape at the crotch and bring it to your ankle.

Write down your measurement

It's easy to forget the numbers, so make sure you write down your measurements. Make sure to update your measurements from time to time. (Age and too much craft beer can be two of the villains behind a growing waistline.)
