SHOULD YOU PURCHASE AN ADULT, A YOUTH, OR A CHILD STYLE?

 

 

The difference in these styles is mainly in the rise (crotch depth), which dictates how high the garment sits at the waistline.  Measure the rise, (see instructions) and then choose which style is closest to your measurement. Youth styles are similar to adult, but with a slightly shorter rise. They are intended for young adults, teens, or adults with shorter stature.  For Teens and Children with waist/hip measurement less than 36”, review the Youth vs. Child Style chart at the bottom of this page to decide which is best.

 

  

To Measure Rise, begin about 1 inch below the belly button, measure down through legs, and up to the position on the back that matches the starting position on the front.  Then, based on the larger of waist/hip measurement, choose the style that comes closest to your own rise measurement.  If you have any questions, call or email us.

 

 

 HOW TO CHOOSE BETWEEN ADULT AND YOUTH STYLES

 

Here is a chart to compare Adult and Youth, sizes X-Small to X-Large only. Waist/Hip size ranges are identical. Only the total rise measurement differs.  In the example below, a Medium Youth garment has a rise 3 ½” less than a Medium Adult.  The Youth would therefore sit just 1 ¾” inches (half of 3 ½”) lower on the waistline than the Adult style.

HOW TO CHOOSE BETWEEN YOUTH

OR CHILD STYLE

For Children and Youth with Waist/Hip measurement between 22”-33” there is a choice between a Youth Style or Child Style.  The Child Style sits on the natural waistline of a child with normal growth patterns.  If a child is very slim and tall, you probably want a Youth to get the highest rise. If they are short and stocky, you may wish a Child style.  Measure their rise, and choose the style that is closest. For example, if the person's waist is 26 and the hip is 29, then 29" is  the larger of the two measurements, so use that to determine size. You can see in the chart below that a 29" measurement would be either a Child XL or a Youth M.  To choose between these 2 styles, measure the rise of the person, then pick the style that is closest to this rise measurement, for the best fit.
