You don’t need measuring tips at all if you can walk into a store, speak with a friendly specialist and try on those high-quality Snickers work trousers behind a curtain. But what if you’re buying online or remotely – as many of us do these days?
Luckily, with the right guidance, you can still get the perfect-fitting Snickers work trousers on your hard-working legs. Here’s how:
1. The fit
First things first: how do you actually want them to fit? Some people like a loose or relaxed style fit, while others prefer something more modern, stylish and therefore slimmer or tight-fitting. That’s the easy part – the style and fit will be clearly marked in the description.
2. Get help
Next up, you’re going to have to take some detailed body measurements – and that’s a heck of a lot easier with a friendly assistant (or helpful family member!). Make sure to wear tight-fitting underwear so that it doesn’t distort your results.
3. Know how to measure
When you’re taking those measurements, and you’re about to get to that part, make sure you pull the tape measure tight around and against your body – but not so tight that it pulls your skin and flesh in and therefore distorts the result.
4. Take your measurements
The advantage of buying Snickers work trousers is just how good their sizing guide really is. It means that if you take those measurements accurately enough, you really can map out an exact virtual image of the product you’re ordering.
Here’s how to take the various measurements:
Body: For your overall body length, measure from the very top of the head to the very bottom of the soles of your feet.
Chest: We all know where our chest is, so choose the widest part of yours and measure horizontally across it.
Waist: As above, but focus on the horizontal width of yours, making sure to cross the belly button in the middle. Be aware that this is one of the most critical measurements you’ll take for your Snickers work trousers.
Lower waist: For this one, repeat the belly button waist measurement as above, but this time take the measurement at exactly the part of the hip where your pants – and only your pants – typically sit for ideal comfort.
Seat: We all know what it means when someone refers to ‘the seat of their pants’ – so take a precise measurement across the widest part of yours.
Inside leg: Some people think the inside leg measurement is taken from the crotch to the bottom of the pants – the ankle – but they’d be wrong. Actually, it’s from the crotch all the way to the very bottom of the sole of your foot. And if you’re buying Snickers work trousers with knee-pads, this is a critical measurement for ideal pad placement.
Now that you have your measurements, or the measurements for your entire work team, you’re ready to start selecting the most comfortable and hardest-working work trousers under the sun!
