What size in jeans from inches? ...

ok so what size jeans does a 34 in waist wear? I saw something that said a size 18 but that can't be right. I can fit my size 8's but I'm curious. i guess honestly it's belly fat I've been working on. Any ideas?

  • Before I got pregnant, I had a 27 inch waist and wore sizes varying between a four and an eight.... I guess it depends on where on the waist you are measuring? Are you measuring just below your belly button or are you measuring the slenderest part of your waist? Or are you measuring further down, closer to your hip bones?

    I mean, a size 18 for a 34 inch waist seems kind of large? I'd it would be closer to maybe a 10 or 12?

  • I also think it really matters the brand of clothes you are looking at. Some brand run large (hence why in some I was able to fit into a size four. Those quickly became my FAVORITE brands... LOL) and some run small. Even pants that size by "waist size" (think Silvers or Rock and Republic or more expensive jeans) aren't ever consistent.

  • i'm measuring from around the hips and lower belly area to keep track of inches lost during my exercise. I feel huge but when I look in the mirror I can see my ab outlines so to hear I was a size 18 when I fit size 8 was very disheartening. Thanks ladies.
