Measuring Yourself For Our Jeans

Published: 3rd May 2016

Do you know the most asked question we get at LKL HQ?

‘I’d totally in love with your Hug Me Baby jeans, but I’m in between sizes, what should I do?’

Well, fear not, we’re here to help, just drop us an email at sales@lady-k-loves.com and we’ll help you work it out.

But if you’re feeling a bit more adventurous and want to try working it out yourself, here’s out how to guide.

Firstly grab your self a tape measure, and remember this, clothes sizes have changed to reflect our bodies changing (for the most part growing) over the years, the only thing that is a true reflection of you, is your reflection. Don’t worry about the label. Worry about if you feel and look good. Yeah? Yeah.

So, now you’re armed with a tape measure and a sense of reassurance that you’re beautiful and people love you. Measure around your natural waist first of all. For most of us this is a couple of inches higher than your belly button. Jot this number down, we’re based in the UK so our sizing is in inches. You can convert cm to inches here

Now measure around 6″ lower than your waist line to get your hip measurement. Jot this down too.

The way it works is this,

our Classics are cut for a difference of around 10″. This is the ‘average’ hip to waist difference and work for most people. If you’re more like 8″ difference, go for the smaller size. 

Hug Me Baby’s are cut for girls with 12″+ difference between their hips and their waist. For the most part, you KNOW if you’re this body shape. you can NEVER get anything to fit,  your waist is tiny, your hips/ass is pretty full. Years of frustration….I kinda can’t reinforce this enough, they look so much better on girls who have 12″PLUS difference between their hips and waist, so waist 26″, hips 39″

Le Wild, well…..let live up to their name and are a total wild card. With a straight leg, and a side zip, they fit an assortment of body shapes. basically if you love them, unless you have a crazy hip to waist ratio, they should fit you and look great! I’ve seen girls with only 6″ – 8″ difference rock these, all the way up to 12″ so for the most part you can too.
