This is for the sellers & buyers of jeans, pants, capris, shorts of all kinds & sizes. I ran into this problem after receiving a pair of shorts with a much higher rise than stated in auction listing.
I went on searching for another pair of shorts. This time, even though the seller stated the RISE was 8" inches, I still questioned her. I explained to her that not everyone measures their RISE in jeans the same way. I asked her how SHE measured them. She stated; She measures the RISE from the TOP of the Crotch to the BOTTOM of waistband.
That to me is not a true RISE measurement .
I measure from BOTTOM (Middle) of CROTCH SEAM to TOP of WAISTBAND.
This applies to FRONT of Jeans.
If a SELLER Choses to Describes RISE Measurements for Both front & back ..They should definitely state that in their description....I personally do not describe both, just the Front Rise....unless asked.
I asked around and was told, that this is the correct way you're suppose to measure the RISE.
A TRUE RISE SIZE
So from now on, to save you any problems. ASK the seller HOW they measure the RISE on their pants, shorts & Jeans!!!
For some they may say "They sit just below the waist"
Well, My waist or their waist?
Always ask questions!!!!
Everyone is built different. Short waisted & Long Waisted. The rise on a pair of pants makes a VERY BIG Difference!!!
SO always ASK Questions!! :)
