I've always worn skirts of trousers, but have finally decided to buy a pair of jeans.
I think I have a 27 inch waist (around the smallest part of my navel.) But I'm confused by the measurements jeans use. Do you use the smallest part part of your waist (below the ribs, above the belly) like you do when buying normal clothes, or do you use your belly-waist (the measurement around your belly button) to get your size? The measurements around my belly are obviously slightly bigger than my waist (by a few inches) so do I need to get a size bigger when buying jeans?
Any advice is appreciated.

24 = size 6 (to fit 23-24" waist & 32-33" low-hip)
26 = size 8 (to fit 25-26" waist & 34-35" low-hip)
28 = size 10 (to fit 27-28" waist & 36-37" low-hip)
30 = size 12 (to fit 29-30" waist & 38-39" low-hip)
32 = size 14 (to fit 31-32" waist & 40-41" low-hip)
So for a 27" waist, you're probably going to need a size 10 unless bigger on the hips, bottom and thighs.
