hold on you are measuring around navel and getting 56 inches are you heavy set ?  because a kachera is 36 across the total circumference is 72 inches  as this distance is doubled . the moree is important you need to measure around the lower part of the thigh near the knee and compare against the moree which is quoted as half the total circumference .

One thing that you should know is that the ghera (width) of a kachera is roughly 2 to 2.5x the actual waist size of a person.

So, let's say that a man has a waist of 33in. The kachera's width would be roughly 50-60in for a large kachera, which is what you should be wearing if you're not a gelding. If you're a girl, wear a suitably smaller one.

The pauncha (leg opening) for a man should be maybe 10=11 inches or so. It's purposely a bit tight so that if, say you're sitting with your butt and feet on the floor, and knees up, no one can peek inside and see your privates.

The other measurement for a kachera is length, which, for a large kachera would mean the length from your waist to your knees (maybe 20-25 in).

I see.

As noted above, you'll need the ghera of the kachera to be larger than your actual waist. For women, it probably won't be double, like it is for men. For men, the folds of the cloth of the extra ghera serve to protect modesty when not wearing any clothes. 

For women, you always have to wear a salwar over your kachera, so generally the ghera isn't so big.

Here's one that offers 44 inches, still too small:

This one is max 43 inches:

Larger ones are often available in India, especially in large kakkar stores in Amritsar.

 

I think what you may have to do is contract with a Sikh tailor to have custom-made kacheras tailored. The major expense will probably be shipping.

For example: 

Gulati Tailor & Cloth House
2.0 
 
 2 reviews
Clothing store in Punjab
Address: 26-A Brahm Butta Market, Near Golden Temple,, Near Guru Ram Das Nivas, Amritsar, Punjab 143001
Phone: 98720 26022

 

This is a well-known tailor. If you've every wandered outside of Darbar Sahib, you've probably seen this shop. It's possible he'll do shipping to wherever you are for a fee.

Then again, I don't know, because I've never even gone into that shop.

Good luck.

so , ghera is like simply the width and not the circumference , right ? because circumference would be 2 times the width.

anyways , for waist of 33 inch , a 60 inch is pretty huge , almost 2 meters wide . Is this wide kachhera practical ?

you certainly can't wear these under the pants .

OK, you could use circumference as a word in English to mean ghera. As I explained, for a man, it would normally be 2X your waist.

Yes, absolutely. Sikhs have always worn this style of kachera from the time of the 10th Guru.

It's not "pretty huge". As explained at the linked post, the extra width bunches up, and protects your modesty when not wearing pants, etc.

Yes, you can and people do wear it under pants.

Also as explained in the linked post, for all you males out there, man up and wear a man's kachera. Of course this doesn't apply to the OP, because she has stated she's a woman.

    • was researching this and came back to this thread. Also found an older thread:    
    • Net pay after taxes. If you don't agree, think about this: If you were a trader and started off in China with silk that cost 100 rupees and came to India, and you had to pay total 800 rupees taxes at every small kingdom along the way, and then sold your goods for 1000 rupees, you'd have 100 rupees left, right? If your daswandh is on the gross, that's 100 rupees, meaning you have nothing left. Obviously, you owe only 10% of 100, not 10% of 1000. No, it's 10% before bills and other expenses. These expenses are not your expenses to earn money. They are consumption. If you are a business owner, you take out all expenses, including rent, shop electricity, cost of goods sold, advertising, and government taxes. Whatever is left is your profit and you owe 10% of that.  If you are an employee, you are also entitled to deduct the cost of earning money. That would be government taxes. Everything else is consumption.    
    • No, bro, it's simply not true that no one talks about Simran. Where did you hear that? Swingdon? The entire Sikh world talks about doing Simran, whether it's Maskeen ji, Giani Pinderpal Singh, Giani Kulwant Singh Jawaddi, or Sants. So what are you talking about? Agreed. Agreed. Well, if every bani were exactly the same, then why would Guru ji even write anything after writing Japji Sahib? We should all enjoy all the banis. No, Gurbani tells you to do Simran, but it's not just "the manual". Gurbani itself also has cleansing powers. I'm not saying not to do Simran. Do it. But Gurbani is not merely "the manual". Reading and singing Gurbani is spiritually helpful: ਪ੍ਰਭ ਬਾਣੀ ਸਬਦੁ ਸੁਭਾਖਿਆ ॥  ਗਾਵਹੁ ਸੁਣਹੁ ਪੜਹੁ ਨਿਤ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰ ਪੂਰੈ ਤੂ ਰਾਖਿਆ ॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The Lord's Bani and the words are the best utterances. Ever sing hear and recite them, O brother and the Perfect Guru shall save thee. Pause. p611 Here Guru ji shows the importance of both Bani and Naam: ਆਇਓ ਸੁਨਨ ਪੜਨ ਕਉ ਬਾਣੀ ॥ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਿਸਾਰਿ ਲਗਹਿ ਅਨ ਲਾਲਚਿ ਬਿਰਥਾ ਜਨਮੁ ਪਰਾਣੀ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The mortal has come to hear and utter Bani. Forgetting the Name thou attached thyself to other desires. Vain is thy life, O mortal. Pause. p1219 Are there any house manuals that say to read and sing the house manual?
    • All of these are suppositions, bro. Linguists know that, generally, all the social classes of a physical area speak the same language, though some classes may use more advanced vocabulary. I'm talking about the syntax. That is, unless the King is an invader, which Porus was not. When you say Punjabi wasn't very evolved, what do you mean? The syntax must have been roughly the same. As for vocabulary, do you really think Punjabis at the time did nothing more than grunt to express their thoughts? That they had no shades of meaning? Such as hot/cold, red/yellow/blue, angry/sweet/loving/sad, etc? Why must we always have an inferiority complex?
    • I still think about that incident now and then, just haven't heard any developments regarding what happened, just like so many other things that have happened in Panjab!
