Bottoms Size??? Go back to waist size the new term adds nothing and confuses me. I'll avoid using Ebay to buy items that use Bottoms Size.

They mean the waist size
And there was a huge discussion about this on the Clothing Discussion board - where most people seemed to think it is a ridiculous term that few will understand.. but eBay went ahead with the change anyway.

So the top of pants are bottoms, and bell bottoms have no waist, and the size of my bottom is now the size of my waist.

STUPID!!!! It's all about greedy eBay making more money. By coming up with this STUPID term they are trying to lump other clothing catergories in. My how this company has sunk!!!

Apparently - waist size.

In effect, it is overanalyzing what people are looking for--if a client is already looking at a listing for "men's pants" then it goes without saying there is no need for a custom specific under "big and tall" for "bottoms"...good grief...!! Yes, I could see this if you were looking at "Pajama Sets".
All of the changes lately, are beginning to seem like IRS regs--c'mon, eBay--let's think these things out some more--it's taking twice as long to list clothing items because of all these changes!!

"Bottoms size" = waist size? Absurd.

When the people say the "bottom-size", I would think that is either the edge of the pans on the bottom or between your thigh and hip not the waist-line(waist). It is more logic to figure then....
