Choosing a size for a protruding tummy

For men: to choose the right size for bottom garments, use the hip measurement, but account for the option of wearing a belt.

Option 1: If a belt is worn underneath the protruding tummy in a bottom garment, then the size is chosen according to the hip measurement (without accounting for the protrusion). The waist is measured exactly where the belt is worn.


Option 2: If a belt is worn around the protruding tummy in a bottom garment, then the size is chosen according to the hip measurement plus the tummy protrusion. The waist is measured exactly where the belt is worn.
