Woman reveals simple trick to finding the perfect jeans without having to try them on

Must See 01/07/2020

Sometimes you desperately need to purchase a new pair of jeans, but... sometimes the last thing you can be bothered to do is try them on.

If they're too small and you're struggling to squeeze into them, it can be disheartening and a true 'mare. And then other times they can be far too big and baggy around the waist.

But one woman has shared her handy little trick on Tik Tok on how to find the perfect pair of jeans without trying them on.

The Sun reported how to do it.

You can find the right waist size by measuring the waistband of the jeans against your forearm.

"Choose a pair of jeans and stick your arm inside the waistband. If there's a large gap between your elbow, your hand and the end of your jeans then they're too big.

"On the flip side, if your [forearm] doesn't fit inside the waistband then they're too small."

If you can fit your forearm and hand inside the waistband and it's "completely snug", then those are your "perfect pair".

And in another video, she shared how she found the right length of jeans by measuring them against her arms.

"Grab a pair of jeans and stretch them across your wingspan. If you stretch them out and they go past your fingertips then it's gonna be too long.

"If you pick up a pair and [have to bend your elbow] then they're too short."

The videos have clocked up over 300,000 views, but not everyone is convinced the hack will work for them.

The ones with the most concern were the ones who claimed they had 'tummies'. 

Give this a go with your favourite jeans you already own and see if this hack will work for you!
