Step 1) Measure your Hips – this is the most important measurement
Hips – Measure around the widest part of your hips or butt, whichever is largest.
Waist – Measure around your torso just below your belly button. This is where the top of the shorts will most likely be worn. Use a flexible tape measure or a piece of string making sure to keep it parallel to the ground.
Step 2) Measure your Waist – just below the belly button
Step 3) Use the Sizing Chart to determine your size
If your measurement is on the borderline between sizes, select the smaller size for a tighter fit and the larger size for a looser fit.
|Size||Hips (in.)||Waist (in.)|
|Size||Hips (cm.)||Waist (cm.)|
If your hip and waist measurement give two different sizes:
1) If the hip measurement is a single size different from the waist, try the size indicated by the hip measurement. (Example 1: Hips are Adult Medium, Waist is Adult Small – select the Adult Medium.)
2) If the hip and waist measurements indicate sizes that are two sizes apart, try the size that is in between the two. (Example 2: Hips are Adult Large, Waist is Adult Small – select the Adult Medium.)
3) If the hip and waist measurements indicate sizes that are three sizes apart, try the size that is one away from the hip size. (Example 3A: Hips are Adult X-Large, Waist is Adult Small – select the Adult Large. Example 3B: Hips are Adult Small, Waist is Adult X-Large – select the Adult Medium.)
