How To Choose The Perfect Fit With Our Size Chart

How To Choose The Perfect Fit With Our Size Chart

We’ve all been there! You stumble upon a fashion brand online and explore just the kind of clothes you were looking for. You can already picture yourself flaunting them. But how do you make sure they'll fit you right when they arrive at your doorstep? 

It can be disappointing when you purchase clothes online only to find out later on that they’re either oversized or unflatteringly loose. That's where size charts come into play. 

In this article, we’ll outline everything you need to know about size charts and teach you how to choose the appropriate fit accordingly while shopping from Raiment 61.


What Is Raiment 61’s Size Chart?

Every brand has its unique approach to sizing. A size 32 for one brand may be slightly different from a size 32 of another brand. At Raiment 61, we've carefully curated our own size chart in accordance with precise body measurements to assist you in achieving the ideal fit. 

On each of our product pages, you’ll find a size chart in a tiny pop-up button. Our size chart contains “Raiment 61 Sizes”, referring to our own sizes for our pants. We have also included conversions for US, UK and EU sizes.


How To Read Raiment 61’s Size Chart For Women?

For our women’s collection, our size chart is based on two measurements - the waist and the hip. The waist refers to the circumference of the top opening of the pants, while the hip size determines how tightly or loosely the pants will fit on your hips, rear, and thighs. 


To read the women’s size chart, follow the step-by step process below:




Measuring your waist: Get a measuring tape and wrap it around your natural waistline - above the belly button but below your ribcage. Make sure the tape is snug but not too tight, and keep it parallel to the floor. Make sure you are not holding your breath. Note down the measurement in inches.

  • Measuring your hips: Place the tape around the widest part of your hips, ensuring it passes over your buttocks. Again, keep the tape parallel to the ground and note down the measurement.

  • Compare With Women’s Size Chart: Now that you have your waist and hip measurements noted down, tally these measurements with our size chart. Depending on whether you want a looser or tighter fit, you can choose to go a size up or down.

  • Cross-Reference With Pants That Fit You: For even more clarity, you can compare our size chart with a well-fitting pair of pants that you already own. Lay down the pants flat on an even surface, and compare the measurements for the waist and hips to ensure the right fit.
  • How To Read Raiment 61’s Size Chart For Men?

    For our men’s collection, the size chart primarily revolves around two key measurements - waist and inseam. While waist size is the circumference of the top opening of the trousers, the inseam size determines the length of the pants.


     Measuring Your Waist: First, grab a measuring tape and locate your natural waistline, situated above your belly button but below your ribcage. Make sure the tape is comfortably snug but not overly tight, and refrain from holding your breath. Keep the tape parallel to the floor and take note of the measurement in inches.

    •  Measuring Your Inseam: The inseam measurement is the distance from the crotch seam to the bottom of the pants' leg. To get an accurate reading, first  measure along the top of your inner leg (where it joins your torso) to your ankle. Ask for assistance if needed. This measurement is essential for ensuring your pants are the suitable length.
    •  Compare With Men’s Size Chart: Compare the waist and inseam readings with our men’s size chart, and choose a looser or tighter fit as per your preferences.


  • Cross-Reference With Pants That Fit You: For added precision, tally our size chart with a pair of pants from your existing wardrobe that fits well. Place the pants on a flat surface, laid out evenly, and align their measurements for the waist and inseam with those indicated on our size chart.

    The Benefits of Using Size Charts

    It might seem time-consuming at first to learn how to read a size chart, but once you do so, it becomes easier to purchase a well-fitting garment because of the following reasons:


    • Size charts eliminate the guesswork that may be involved otherwise in picking the right size. You can be confident that what you see is what you'll get.
    • By choosing the right size, your clothes will fit comfortably and flatter your body shape.
