A GUIDE TO FINDING YOUR SIZE

HOW TO GET PERFECTLY SIZED UNDERWEAR

At Nic Tailor, we believe in finding your true size for a flawless fit. Why settle for generic sizing categories like small, medium, and large, when you could wear clothes that are tailored to your exact measurements? Many clothing companies intentionally deflate waist sizes to make you feel good. Don’t be fooled! Here, we use honest, authentic measurements, like a real tailor. Check out our guide below to discover your honest measurements:

 

FINDING YOUR TRUE WAIST SIZE

If you happen to have a tape measure laying around, simply measure the circumference of your waist two inches below your navel. Place one finger between your waist and tape measure to ensure a comfortable fit. If you don't have a tape measure - don't worry. Lay your favorite pair of jeans out flat. With a ruler, measure the center of the waistband. Now, double that. That should be your honest waist size. (For example, if the waist is 18 inches across, you would have a 36 inch waist.)

 

MEASURING YOUR INSEAM LENGTH

Inseam is the length of the garment from the crotch point to the end of the pant leg. Our underwear come in 3, 5 and 8 inch in-seams. (Of course, our briefs have zero inseam.)

To find your groin size properly, please measure yourself in a comfortable pair of briefs. Place one end of your tape measure on the groin seam of your briefs. Run the tape measure over your groin at its largest, fullest point to the seam on the other side. If the measurement is 7 3/4" or greater, then you have a large groin. If it is less than 7 3/4," then your groin is average.

 

MEASURING YOUR BUTT SIZE

Many people with large rear ends will order pants with a bigger waist size just so they can fit into them. But here’s a another way: measure the width around your butt at its widest part. If this measurement is 8 or more inches larger than your waist size, you have a large butt. If your butt is between 5" and 8" greater than your waist, then the regular butt will fit you. If your butt is less than 5 inches greater than your waist, then you have a small butt.
