Women 3/4 Padded Pants Measurements

Our 3/4 padded pants selection are all made from a mixture of synthetic and stretch fabrics which gives a great four way stretch so that you will be comfortable and able to move freely.  All our Womens Capri’s have a cycling chamois sewn into the crutch.

To get the right size you need to know your waist & hip measurements.  The best way to measure is with a tape measure.  If you don’t have a tape measure use a piece of string or some wool then lay this out along a ruler.


Firstly you will need to find your waist.

To find the natural crease line of your waist, stand straight with hands at the side.  Then bend sideways running the hand down the outside surface of the leg.  This movement will produce a crease at the waist so place your measuring tape on this crease.  Return to standing straight and place the tape measure around your waist at your crease point (usually the narrowest part of your torso).

Your hip measurement is found…  approximately 18cm down from the waist. Let the measuring tape fall down your body to the floor to find the 18cm mark.  Move the measuring tape to this point then wrap it around your body.  Make sure it is straight all the way around.

 

See the size chart below to help with choosing the most comfortable size. If your measurement is close to or right between sizes think about a couple of things. 

  1. How this product is designed to fit across your hips & butt – relaxed fit vs a performance fit. 
  2. What is your body shape? Is your body shape fairly straight up & down?  Or below where you took your hip measurement, do you continue to curve out?  If you tend to be more straight up and down choose the smaller size, if you are curvy go for the next size up (most of us NZ girls continue to curve out!).
