Now that you are fully aware of the most important things to consider when sizing your shorts, it's time to learn how to measure your shorts properly. There are a few steps to follow.
The inseam is where the shorts will come to when worn. This is very important, as an incorrect inseam measurement could make your swim shorts too long or short. For this step, you'll want to measure from your crotch down to your knee, depending on your preferences.
You can adjust the knee measurement to find the best length that you'd prefer to have. At this point, you can also get your rise measurements, as all you have to do is measure from your crotch to your waistline.
