Trying on jeans can be a pain. What many don't know: To find out whether the jeans really fit, there are three simple tricks that you don't have to use to put the pants on! We'll tell you:
Are you one of those people who hate buying new jeans? Constantly dressing and undressing, squeezing into too tight trouser legs to see that it sticks out at the top of the bottom and is much too long on the legs. Dreadful! Even if you think you've found the perfect fit for yourself and your body, the sizes of jeans suddenly turn out differently depending on the brand, manufacturer and color. Then we have the perfect solution. Because there are three simple tricks that can help you find the perfect pair of jeans without trying on them.
# 1: the waistband-around-the-neck trick
Finding the perfect jeans size for you is not that easy. Because depending on the fit and cut, the sizes can vary quite a bit. For example, if you need a 38 in a pair of skinny jeans, it may well be possible to fit a 34 in a mom jeans or balloon leg jeans. To see whether the chosen jeans fit or not, you can simply place the waistband around your neck from the back. A bit like tying a chain on. If the two ends touch each other loosely at the front, the jeans will most likely fit you and maybe even fit perfectly.
By the way, we've gathered our favorite jeans for you here:
# 2: the chin trick
If, on the other hand, you want to find out whether the jeans would fit in terms of length, you can simply grab your pant legs and spread your arms wide to the right and left. If the crotch of the jeans is right under your chin, the leg length is ideal.
Trick # 3: The Forearm Trick
To find out now whether your favorite jeans are the perfect size, you just have to clench your hand into a fist and stick your forearm into the waistband. If your arm fits in from your elbow to your fist, the jeans will fit nicely on your hips too. But be careful! This method does not work for jeans that explicitly have a high waist look.
