Hello. We always recommend following the product-specific size chart by your actual waist measurement, which may differ from your jeans size, for example. To measure your actual waist you can wrap a flexible tape measure around your natural waist (around your hip pointers, a little below your navel). If you don't have a flexible tape measure, you can use a rope or something flexible (but not stretchy) and then lay that flat next to a measuring tape or ruler to get your measurement.
If you do find that you fall in between sizes then that creates a bit of a gray area. Many riders in that situation like to go with the larger size so that they're not wearing something too restrictive or tight, but if your body type lends itself to it then you may be better suited to instead go with the smaller size.
If you have any questions at all please get in touch with us at 1-800-783-8326 or firstname.lastname@example.org and we'd be more than happy to help. That's what we're here for.
