Read below on how to measure yourself:
Most important! *** - Measure your hips
Since the shorts are vintage, there is no stretch in the fabric and they tend to fit smaller than modern sizers.
To measure you hips, start standing with your feet together. Locate the correct area of your hips which is the widest point around your butt. Your hip measurement should include your butt and hips. Hold the start of the tape measure on one hip, wrap it around your buttocks and around your other hip and then back to where you started.
Measure your waist
The best way to measure your waist is by using a measuring tape (a flexible one). To do this, wrap the measuring tape around your wait (the narrowest point between your ribs and hips). This is generally right above where your hips stop, above your belly button.
Tip: Be sure to not measure on top of clothing, and relax your body when you do this so you get your true size. If measuring tape is not available to you, you can take something like a ribbon, repeat the step, and then measure it on a ruler or yardstick.
Vintage Levi’s run small. You will likely find that you measure a size or two bigger than what you normally wear in “stretchy” jeans, this is normal! If you want a baggier loose fit, we recommend going a couple inches from your measurement depending how you want them to fit.
