    The best way that i found that works for me is. measure your thigh at the groin,. devide this number by 4 and add 1 in. [ example 18 devided by4 equals 4 & 1/2 in +1in =5& 1/2 in. ] then round up to the next whole number.which would be 6 in. Also try ask.com clothing measurements.

    I assume thatwhen you say measure your thigh at the groin, you mean the circumference of the thigh from the groin.

    When it comes to crotch width, just remember wider is better, as that will allow you to wear thicker diapers under the plastic pants.

    As for other measurements, find yourself a fabric tape measure, available in the craft section of your favorite big box store for about $4, and have at it. Remember to make any measurements while wearing the diapers you'll be wearing with the garment. And yes, measure your waist, as well, as it will be thicker with a diaper. If you do feel compelled to make a crotch measurement, wear your thick diapers, then measure starting at where the diaper touches your skin around the outside and back, between your legs.

    wider is only better to an extent

    If your wearing them for their intended use (over a cloth diaper), you want to obviously have enough room in there for the cloth diaper, but you dont want to have the plastic pants fit too loosely where they sag below the cloth. this will allow urine to pool in the pants and cause alot of unnecessary leaks, all because the urine was allowed to pool up rather than kept in contact with the cloth where it can be absorbed/wicked away

    But, if you're wearing a onesie with your diapers, or alternatively the next time you sit down, you'll likely solve any problems with pooling. But really, I consider onesies to be a nearly essential part of cloth diaper wearing
