"Hilary Duff Weight Loss: Actress Back In Her Size 26 Jeans After Giving Birth," proclaimed a recent headline by The Huffington Post dated Dec. 3, 2012. Surely they meant to say that the slim actress is wearing jeans with a 26-inch waist rather than wearing a size 26. It's easy to see how they arrived at a size 26. Duff tweeted a photo of a pair of denim pants, and the number 26 is easily visible on a tag at the waistband.
According to a handy online tool, "Size 6 pants fit waists of 26 inches and hips of 36.5 inches." So, it sounds like Duff is actually wearing a size six these days. Very impressive weight loss. The pants in the photo that Duff tweeted are by Rag & Bone New York, and, yes, they size their pants by waist measurement in inches not the traditional American sizing of 0-2-4-6-8-10-12.
There are some even more interesting numbers associated with Rag & Bone New York jeans than their sizes. That's their prices. Be prepared to spend more than $150 on a tiny pair of jean shorts by Rag & Bone. A pair of skinny leather jeans will run you around $1,000, and a simple pair of leggings could run you around $220. Of course, Duff can afford to buy the pricey jeans by the truckload. According to Celebrity Net Worth, she has an estimated net worth of $25 million. That's a lot of $198 skinny jeans or $187 capri pants.
Hilary Duff's weight loss is a proud accomplishment. Congratulations to the new mom on her new body.
