    S-Short R-Regular L-Long Short is for people with short legs. Regular is for people whose legs are too long for short but too short for long. Long is for people with longer legs. 00, 0, 1/2, 3/4, 5/6, 7/8, 9/10, 11/12, 13/14, 15/16, and 17/18 are the sizes for your waist.

    It means regular. The letters you'll often see next to the number on jeans will be S, R, or L. It's for the length of your legs. S means short, for short legged people. R is for average people, and L is for if you have long legs.

    16 Regular. Regular refers to the length.

    It means regular. Its refers to the length of the inseam. P=petite, R=regular, L=long, sometimes they use S=short.

    Every designer has their own size chart so you would have to check to get the exact numerical measurements from whatever company you are ordering from.

    R=Regular, which stands for the length being the average length for jeans, versus L for long and S for short
