    I'm looking at a pair of jeans, and they are called "Silver Jeans 29 extra long"

    What size is 29? Does it mean 29 inches [as in the waist]?

    I've been going to the gym six days a week, so if it's a 9 I think I can fit into them.

    Anyone know??

    I assume it means waist size, alot of jeans are sized that way. When I was a size 2 I had a 24 inch waist, I believe my 29 inch waist required a 28-29 or a size 7-8ish.

    In the UK, women's sizes are measured at the hip, men's at the waist. So a UK 36 is 36" around the hips, which corresponds to a size 5.

    It looks like in the US pants can also be sized by waist inches for women, which doesn't make much sense as our hips are our widest part. :confused: Anyway, here's a conversion chart. *****SportingGoods.com Looks like 29" waist is a size 10. A 29" hip measurement (usually hip sizes are even increments) would be a Size 0.

    Safest is not to buy clothes online, I find, as a 10 from one store is never the same as a 10 from another, and sometimes it varies within a store depending on where the clothes were originally made.
