Please note: Lederhosen and Bundhosen exhibit minimal stretching compared to fabrics like jeans or cotton trousers. The sizing also varies based on how you tuck in your Lederhosen / Bundhosen.


The Lederhosen For Sale collection is rooted in authentic German design principles and crafted from high-quality, genuine cow leather. Similar to any genuine leather product, your Lederhosen requires some time to mold and adapt to your body’s shape and size. To ensure the best fit, kindly adhere to the following guidelines:

Lederhosen and Bundhosen will naturally loosen by about 0.5 to 1 inch after being worn 2-3 times. This process of breaking in the leather is essential prior to Oktoberfest. If uncertain about your exact Lederhosen size, opting for a size larger is advisable using our lederhosen size guide.

Waist: Measure your waist snugly with the tape, ensuring a gentle contact without pressing into the skin. Place the tape where you typically wear your pants—slightly above the hip bone.

Seat/Hip: Determine your seat size around the fullest part of your hip, maintaining a level tape position.

Thigh: Similar to the seat measurement, consider the fullest area of your thigh to determine the appropriate size for this leg segment. This measurement pertains to a single thigh, not both combined.

Inseam: Measure from the crotch to the knee, following a straight downward line. For Bundhosen, extend the measurement to the ankle instead of stopping at the knee.

Remember to measure around the waist as international sizes for leather garments may diverge from standard US/UK sizes.


When making a purchase, please consider that the current dresses are designed to fit bodies resembling those of our models in the images. For women with a larger bust measurement, we suggest opting for a size or two sizes larger from the lederhosen size guide. This will provide additional room and allow for minor tailoring adjustments to the waist if needed.

Before finalizing your purchase, we kindly ask you to review our recommended steps for measuring your size accurately.

Chest: Place the measuring tape horizontally or parallel to the ground, encircling the fullest part of your chest. It’s important to take this measurement without applying excessive pressure on the tape, ensuring the most precise results.

Waist: Wrap the tape around the narrowest point of your natural waist, slightly above the belly button and below the rib cage.

Hips: Measure around the fullest area of your hips, keeping both legs close together. Performing this measurement in front of a mirror is advised to ensure the tape remains as level as possible.

Please ensure the bust/chest size is well-fitted. Measure around the chest to identify the best corresponding size in inches on the provided chart below.


Combine your Lederhosen with a stylish Bavarian check shirt. The subsequent recommendations will assist you in selecting the appropriate size:

Neck: Measure the neck around the collar area or its widest point. Avoid pulling the tape too tightly; maintain a slightly loose fit.

Chest: Determine your size by measuring around the broadest part of your chest, ensuring the tape remains level.
