What's my size? Junior boys trouser fitting guide.
A guide to choosing the right size junior boys trousers.
You can choose from three different "fitting" junior boys trousers from Trutex:
Regular / Classic fit - slim but not skinny leg
Slim fit - same style as classic with a smaller waist size
Sturdy fit - same style as classic with a larger waist size
To find your right size, check out the size charts below. You will need two key measurements of your child:
1 - Waist - for a comfortable fit and to establish which option is best for your child
Measure your child’s waist by finding the narrowest part of their torso; this is normally a couple of inches above their hip bone and often, but not always, in line with the bellybutton. If your child has no natural narrower part to their torso, take their waist measurement from about halfway between the bottom of their rib cage and the top of their hip bone. Pull the tape measure so it’s snug but not tight against their waist and make sure they’re not holding their breath! You don’t need to add anything to the measurement for comfort as good quality school uniform will be designed with a little bit of ‘ease’ included.
2 - Inside leg - for the right length trouser
To take the inside leg measurement, ask your child to put on their school shoes and stand naturally. Run the tape measure down their inner leg, from their crotch to an inch or so above the ground where you’d like their trousers to finish. Try to ensure the tape measure is in a straight line, not wrapping around their leg, and don’t pull it too tight or they’ll end up with too-short, uncomfortable trousers.
These Trutex measuring guides can be applied to all trousers on our site.
