Guys, what do you consider your ideal pants size ?



Recommended Posts

Right now at 11 months post surgery I went from being a 56/58 to now I'm in a 40/42. Ideal size for me would be about a 34/36. So I'm really really close to reaching that goal.

I was wearing 52's before and now I'm wearing 42's...who knows where I'll end up but it's pretty damn cool how much everything has changed.

I was wearing 46/48 and now I'm in 38s. So good. I'd be happy at 36/38.

If I go by the link to that Men's Health article with the 2:1 ratio then 36" would be my ideal. Good number to shoot for then

So this was posted about a month post-op. I can say that is WAS a good number to shoot for and I am currently wearing 36"s

I'm currently 32, but the pants are a little baggy in the seat. I wish I could get back up to a 34. I felt and looked better.

I'm at a 36 levi now. I'm very happy with it. I'm only 7 months out of sleeve surgery. I'm hoping to definitely get down to a 34 no less than that. But the difference in brands are crazy. I tried gap jeans on they were pretty snug old Navy very lose. American Eagle and Levi fit well. I remember when I was huge I would by old Navy jeans just for the smaller number

Since this post my 36" Levi 559s are getting loose around the waist. I could probably wear 34"s. I asked for a pair for Christmas. Even if they don't fit it will be a goal.

I am a slow looser so it has taken me a year and half since surgery but I finally hit 30W x 30L. That's down from a size 52W two years ago. I feel wonderful. I am flipping over backwards with joy. I never ever dreamed I'd be this small again.

i wear "chef wear" pants. baggy and elastic waist. largest 5 X, currently 3 X. at my healthiest i wore a 32 square. i don't think i can get to 32 without a little snip, snip here, snip, snip, there. getting into a 38 would be like crossing the bridge into "onederland". just about half way there!

I was 54" for many years. I've gotten down to 34" since 9 months post op and remain at 34" 2 years out.

Hoping to stay at this size forever ...

I am 32/34 depending on what style of pants. This is coming from a 52. I never thought I would be below 36.
