What size?

We frequently get questions if our work trousers are small or large in sizes. We would say they are pretty true to size. Please try to spend some time measuring yourself and compare your body measurements with the measurement chart below.

If you are in between two sizes of Ava or Tilde, we usually advise you to pick the smaller size since they have stretch around bottom and waist. The trousers will also stretch after a few days’ usage, although they return to their original size after washing. If you prefer your trousers to be a little looser, choose the larger one. If you are interested in a pair of Felicia, Wilja or Jenny, you should pick the size that best matches your waist measurements as this model has a straight waistband without stretch.

(measurements in cm)

How to measure:

  • Ask someone to help you to take your measurements so that you can focus on standing straight. Or you can stand in front of a mirror to get it right.
  • Make sure the tape measure is horizontal when measuring. 
  • Your waist is measured at the slimmest point, usually a couple of cm above the belly button. 
  • Your lower hip is measured at the widest point. Start at the hip and let the tape measure slide down to the widest point.
  • Inside of leg length is measured on the inner seam of the trouser leg, from the crotch seam to the end of the hem. We recommend you to measure a pair of your own trousers and use that measurement. 
  • Measure the bust at the widest point, usually around the height of the nipples. Adjust the tape measure slightly up at the back to give the lower part of the shoulder blades space.

If you don’t have a tape measure to hand, just use the neat trick of using a string and then measure the string against a metre stick. 

Note that the measurements in the measurement chart refers to your body measurements, and not the measurements on the garments. You will find the garment measurements on each product's page. 
If there is a garment measurement you are wondering about, just call or email and we will be happy to help you!
