1. Button up the pant of pants you want to buy

2. Wrap the waistline around your neck to complete a circle as if it were a cape

3. If the ends meet together perfectly without pulling, they’re the right size. If there’s any left over fabric when you bring the ends together, they are too big. If you have to pull the ends to meet around your neck, the pants are too small.

Did it work for you? It’s worked for us many times. It’s another one of those weird body tricks.
