MEASURING the Lower Torso, from waistband
How high do you want your pants to go up your torso?
This measurement is from the top of the waistband passing the tape measure between the legs, over the crotch, and back up to the waistband at the back. Press the measuring tape against the body curves, without being too tight.
TIP: wear pants or shorts that are an example of how you want these to fit.
