Sorry, silly question: what does "waist aligned" mean?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I've seen some items on HM and people post "waist aligned" and give the measurements. I'm not sure what that means?

TIA~~~

When you normally lay your jeans down they have a "dip" in the front(where the front is lower than the back). When you have it aligned the front and back are even.

I thought you measured with the dip (unaligned)?
i mean if it's low rise (which most jeans are now a days) and you measure it "aligned" (following the definition posted above) then when you wear it, it's still not going to be aligned.
so wouldn't measuring with the dip be more accurate?

i tried measuring my jeans with the lowest rise both ways and there was really no difference...if there is...maybe we should set a guideline on how to measure these things when listing in the HM?

i usually get about a 1/2" difference in measurements when aligned & unaligned are used. this matters a great deal to me.

HONU: here's an illustrated reference that i use when someone asks

*ALIGNED* aka "stretched"


*UNALIGNED*
