Correct way to measure the RISE in PANTS & JEANS

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 .

CORRECT WAY;

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!! :)
