Lunapt post fit pics for further help because maybe you like painted

I'm probably grasping at straws here but is there a formula of sorts to convert thigh circumference to thigh width measurements used by shops that sell jeans? e.g. 24" circumference thighs would convert to 11.7" thigh width

 

I don't live that close to many jean specialty shops so I'm forced to buy raws online and I'm pretty tired of having to return wares because my thighs (~23" around) are not proportionate to my waist in my experience (32±1). Maybe I'm just crazy but half the time the jeans hug my thighs like mad so I have to size up or (as I did a few years ago) buy loose jeans *shudder* I've learned the error of my ways though.

An equation would never work because different people like different fits on their thighs.

Of course, was thinking the result would be something like the minimum thigh width to fit your thigh circumference with maybe half an inch of leeway.

I'm comfortable with: (thigh measurement/2) + 0.5"

First and foremost is to be aware that there are various ways the thigh is measured ... for instance, Blue in Green, SelfEdge and Tate&Yoko all measure the thigh differently.

With a 24" thigh, I would look for a 12.5" thigh from BiG, 11.75" from SE and 12" T&Y ... based upon how they report their method for taking measurements.

Okay, I just remeasured. They're roughly 23" around so would I be roughly correct in saying 12" from BiG, 11.25" from SE, and 12" from 11.5" from T&Y?

 

Additionally, how much should I be sizing up on the thigh area to account for shrinkage upon washing for the very first time? Most shops only list shrinkage in waist and inseam and I get that it may vary by brand but perhaps you could answer from experience? I'm guessing it's proportionate to waist shrinkage. (Waist shrinkage/2) maybe?

 

The maths person in me wishes there was just a set number, that when you bought a pair of jeans that you'd know exactly how much it would shrink but unfortunately, there are many other variables to account for.

I've understood the thigh to shrink around .5" and the general consensus is that stretching them back out is very difficult.

If pre-wash measurements of 0.25" matters to you, have the retailer measure the pair for you because there will be variations between even within the same size ... good luck.

Today is 5/6/2013. I've lost a lot of weight and need some new jeans. What I'm looking for is something really simple & made in the USA. I'm not adverse to Japanese denim, but made in USA is a deal breaker. Thanks for any insights.smile.gif

post #19317 of 20892

hey guys, so I just started riding my bike around more often with my selvedge jeans. and it seems to get alot more wear in the seat and feels getting more worn than I thought. I bike about 200-250 miles a week, do you guys having any suggestions to reinforce it before the crotch blows out?

Front rise has alot to do with thigh too, in high rise jeans 12" thigh is perfect, in low rise jeans 12" thigh is tight as hell on me.

so since ive started lifting seriously again, i outgrew my UB201. got them in size 30 with 11inch thigh measurements. everything fits good but the thighs feel like theyre gonna burst
my own waist is measured at 31 (usually tts30 in most bottoms) and my thighs are at 21.5 inches and will probably hit 22 eventually. not sure whether i should get UB301 with 11.5/23 inch thighs or NF wierd guys with 11.75/23.5 thighs. im now lost and just want to wear jeans that fit....
