I found an articles with measurements to determine pant size. Does this look about right for you ? I guess each brand has it's own chart but this is helpful and looks to be correct.
I wonder why they have a waist to hip difference of 10 inches, my waist is not 10 inches smaller than my hips....not yet anyways LOL I find this odd since when I find pants that fit over my hips and tush (ughh...and thighs) ....the waist is usually too large.
I am wearing 16s right now ...but I think I am close to wearing 14s. My pants are feeling loose and I have been catching myself pulling them up alot lately.
Compare your waist and hip measurements against your brand's size chart according to your build category. For example, JC Penney's misses size chart :
Size 0 (extra small): Waist = 24 inches and hips = 34.5 inches
Size 2 (extra small):: Waist = 25 inches and hips = 35.5 inches
Size 4 (small): Waist = 26 inches and hips = 36.5 inches
Size 6 (small): Waist = 27 inches and hips = 37.5 inches
Size 8 (medium): Waist = 28 inches and hips = 38.5 inches
Size 10 (medium): Waist = 29 inches and hips = 39.5 inches
Size 12 (large): Waist = 30.5 inches and hips = 41 inches
Size 14 (large): Waist = 31 to 32 inches and hips = 42.5 inches
Size 16 (extra large): Waist = 33.5 inches and hips = 44 inches
Size 18 (extra large): Waist = 35.5 inches and hips = 46 inches
Size 20 (extra extra large): Waist = 37.5 inches and hips = 48 inches
This article also has men and children clothing measurements for JcPenney.
