Is your waist size your jean size?

It depends on the maker. Many have vanity sizingwhere the actual waist measurement is at least 2 inches morethan your actual waist measurement. So theirsize 34 actually has a 36 inch waist measurement ormore. Higher rise jeans will fit closer to yournatural waist line.
