How to measure for pants

Are you classic or curve?


Now that you’ve gotten your waist and hip measurements, we can take you through the first step when buying our J&K Apparel work pants. Caribbean females come in so many shapes and sizes and as a locally designed brand our pants are specifically designed with Caribbean women in mind. J&K Apparel work pants are available in 2 different waists styles that cater to various body types.


As the name suggests our curve waist is designed for our more curvaceous body types. Cut to contour to the body through waist and hip, this waist style works best with body shapes such as pear, hourglass and triangle shapes where the waist is approx. 10” smaller than the hip. We can even take this a step further by introducing to you our high curve waist pant. While its high rise design comes with some leg lengthening perks, it also adds support and coverage for your mid-section area.


Our classic waist is cut to fit those equally beautiful body shapes such as rectangle and inverted triangle shapes where the waist is the same size or approx. 6” smaller than the hip which gives you an easy fit through hip and thigh. Even better, our classic waist pant also comes in a stretch option for those of us who prefer maximum mobility when it comes to fit and comfort.
