Full Answer

Because sizing varies based on a variety of factors including brand, cut and style, it is a good idea for both men and women to try on pants or shorts before purchasing them. A woman with a 29-inch waist might fit into a women's size 16 in one pair of pants and a women's size 20 in another. The same is true for men's pants, though less variation in cut and style is common.
