I really don't understand my body, it measures 34-35, but I usually buy 32" jeans

what the xxxx??
so when it comes to buying online, I have my hesitation NOW

does anyone have the same problem?

if never think of the "slim" thing, I can actually wear 34" jeans maybe
BUT, it really can't hold up!
it seems I must use something to hang up the pants if it is 34"!!!!!

but when I wear 32" jeans, it just push up my fat upward, make me looks even fatter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is one of the more incoherent posts I’ve read here. That’s saying something.

If I understand your post, your waist measures at 34-35" but you fit into jeans that are marked as a 32" waist. This is common. Have you measured the waist of your 32" jeans? I bet it will be 34-35".

Many manufacturers make their waists larger than the marked size, and in some cases considerably larger. This is sometimes called "vanity sizing". In order to buy online, it helps to know the jeans' actual waist measurement, and not all online retailers publish this.

this is what I mean
usually we buy waist size of line 4
and if we buy line 3, the difference from 3 and 4 for people with smaller belly I think would be 1-2 inch or even maybe 3 inch
difference between 2 and 3 maybe 3-4 inches

but actually it seems we should wear jeans or trousers waist of line 1 or 2
but, with size, we may need suspenders
what would be ur guys opinions?

Oh I think I understand. Maybe you’re referring to the “rise” of a trouser, or how high it’s meant to extend up your body. Low-rise trousers can be difficult to wear if you have a big belly. A higher rise trouser is usually more comfortable for most people. Picking the right trouser waist size also involves understanding where the trouser waist is intended to sit on your body.

Thank you! I've just signed up researching this. I bought "my size" 32" jeans - they were very loose, yet 30" fitted perfect - I seriously thought Diesel had a mislabelled batch :oops:

And the problem for men with an ample mid-section is that jeans are generally cut with a very low rise--especially the high-end selvedge brands. Indeed unlike tailored trousers, jeans tend to look "wrong" up over the hip bones. At least to me.

actually I think it is not that rise thing
it is that "OUR" fat is so "movable"
