Woman claims she has a foolproof way to see if jeans fit WITHOUT trying them

Finding a pair of jeans that are a perfect fit can be a chore at the best of times, but with changing rooms in some stores closed due to Covid-19, it’s a total nightmare. 

Ensuring they fit at the waist, hip and leg is chore for most women, making them dread heading into changing rooms in order to wiggle their way into a pair. 

But one TikTok user has shared a handy hack to fit into jeans without having to try them on.

Billie Newland, an influencer and fashion blogger from Iowa, say you can check the waist size with your forearm and the leg length with your wingspan – but many aren’t convinced.

Many pointed out if they lose or gain weight their jeans might fit differently, but their forearms will be the same length.

While others said their arms were a different length to their legs, meaning the hack won’t work for them.   

Commenting on her first clip, one TikTok user said: ‘But what if you have a tummy??’
