A size 28 in women’s jeans corresponds to a size 6, or a waist measurement of 28 inches. A size 28 corresponds to a waist measurement of 29 3/4 inches for males.
Sizing for women’s denim is quite straightforward; the waist measurement of a pair of jeans matches the size number. For instance, a 28 always indicates a waist measurement of 28 inches. Denim for women can also be sized in even numbers beginning with 0 and ascending.
Men’s denim sizes range somewhat from women’s because men’s natural waistline falls at a different place than women’s. Refer to the denim size chart of your preferred brand for additional information.
