The usual problem with clothes from Amazon - too small
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 26 July 2021
I've tried buying different pairs of jeans from Amazon, and they all have this one big problem, nobody seems to know how to measure clothing!
It seems easier to purchase clothes from supermarkets as they know how to size clothing, and in general are cheaper, but I thought I'd try to use my knowledge of the sizing issues and attempt again to save myself a journey to a supermarket I don't normally visit (Sainsbury's in this case)
Just for reference, my waist is just larger than 36", it used to be just under, but lockdown impacted us all in different ways - I previously purchased Sainsbury's jeans at 38" waist just to give some "expansion" with sedentary time, and they still fit with some room around the waist
On looking at these, I thought I'd try going up a couple of sizes, buying 40" waist, 32" leg (regular), and guess what - they're INCREDIBLY tight around the waist, abdomen and butt (yes, I have a bit of a butt on me, but that's why I always buy relaxed fit), so much so that I can't even sit down comfortably
So, it looks like if you're not a stick, and you want to buy some jeans that can be delivered, then go up SEVERAL steps of sizes - it's almost as though whoever distributes these has a different tape measure that starts at -5" where we all have zero on ours 🤪
The pity is that these actually look great, a little on the thin size (material thickness, not narrowness), but the sizing issues seem to be an ongoing issue with Amazon clothing purchases!
