Depending on the maker, a pair of jeans with a size label of 29 corresponds to a U.S. size 8 or 10. The number 29 suggests a waist size of 29 inches, but even this measurement is not always accurate.
Manufacturers’ sizing standards vary drastically, and a size 6 from one brand may fit similarly to a size 10 from another. Moreover, some firms employ “vanity sizing,” in which smaller sizes have greater proportions in order to deceive buyers into believing they can wear smaller sizes than they actually can. Trying on jeans prior to purchase is the best method to assure a proper fit; if ordering online, consult a size chart to find the correct size based on your waist size and inseam length.
