Thigh Circumference

Here is how to measure your thigh circumference. Stand with feet shoulder width apart and wrap the measuring tape around the thigh. Aim for where the bottom of your butt meets the top of your thigh. Keep the sewing tape close to your skin, but don’t strangle it. Make it easier by getting your friend to do this.

Welcome to your guide to measuring your thighs. 

With over 50% of global clothing sales being online, I want to ensure you get the perfect fitting pants with the first order. Because we all know the frustrating hassle, it is dealing with the extra shipping time and costs.

Tools needed to measure your thigh:

  • Sewing tape measure

Grabbing the measuring tape out of your toolbox will not work for this job; you need a flexible tape that can hug your skin.

How to Measure Thighs

  1. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart.
  2. Wrap the measuring tape around the thickest part of your thigh, where the bottom of your butt meets the top of your thighs. 
  3. Keep the tape snug but not tight, and ensure that the tape measure is level from front to back.

Tips for Measuring Your Thighs

  1. Use a sewing tape (or use a string and measure the amount used with a ruler once off your leg.)
  2. Do not strangle your leg with the measuring tape.
  3. Instead, allow for a bit of air between it and your skin.
  4. Do not flex your leg muscles (quad or hammies) while taking the measurement. 
  5. Grab a friend if possible to measure your thigh circumference for the most accurate reading.
