Waist & hip measurements are taken around each point of the garment. The rise of each garment and where the waist will sit on your body depends on the cut; a high waist generally hits 11-12" above your pelvic/groin area, a mid-rise is 9-10" on average and a low rise is generally 7-8".
The inseam is measured from the bottom of the pelvic/crotch seam down the leg to the end of the opening at the bottom.
Judy Blue Sizing & Notes: Judy Blue jeans have amazing stretch while keeping their shape ensuring a comfortable, yet stylish fit. Most customers can size down one size from their normal size in other brands. For example; if you generally wear a size 9 in other jeans, we recommend a size 7 in Judy Blue.

Skinny jeans are tight fitting from the thigh down to the ankle. They're usually made with stretch denim so that the wearer can get them off and on easily.
Straight cut jeans have a straight up-and-down fit through the entire leg. Straight jeans can vary slightly from being on the loose side like boyfriend jeans or relaxed-fit jeans, or the fitted side, like slim-fit jeans. Pay attention to the description and fit notes for each product.
Wide-leg jeans: Wide leg jeans are cut wide throughout the leg, beginning to flare around the mid-thigh and then continuing down to a wide leg opening.
