I inherited some soakers from a friend who got them from a friend who handknit these. My friend never used these and had no idea of the size. I've never used soakers and have no idea of the size. There are a lot of them, and there are multiple sizes. Any way I can measure them to get a decent estimate on the size for sorting purposes? Thanks!

Maybe write or call the manufacturer and ask what their standard sizing is?

measure the waist, the rise, and maybe the leg holes

to get an idea of the size.


Fern and faerie's measurements are, they probably run a bit smaller than most other patterns
