To calculate the correct women’s trouser size, hip measurements and waist measurements are taken into account. First, measure your waist by placing a measuring tape around your waist. Make sure the measuring tape is not too tight or too loose and read the centimeters. Then you measure the hip circumference. You do this by tying a measuring tape around your hips. Again, not too loose or too tight. Also read this centimeter. Now you can calculate your trouser size in the table below.

This is the number of centimeters from your crotch to your ankle. You will also need these centimeters to find out which men’s trousers will suit you.
