  • To determine a woman’s clothing size, you need to take measurements of the following body parts or areas: (1) chest, (2) waist, (3) first hip or low waist, (4) hips or second hip, (5) and height.
  • Vanity sizes (size inflation) are a common trend in fashion where a size number increases its corresponding measurement, often in an attempt to make buyers feel skinnier than what they would normally be.

Measuring Your Body

  • Waist: Position the tape measure around the narrowest part of your waist, typically around your belly button or slightly above it and gauge the waist circumference in inches or centimetres.
  • First Hip/Low Waist: Identify the point between your hip and your waist and wrap the tape measure around it.
  • Hips/Second Hip: As with the chest measurement guide, ensure the tape measure encircles the broadest part of your hip. There’s no need to allow extra room for movement if you’re planning to purchase stretchy jeans with a snug or slim fit.
  • Chest: Stand upright, with arms relaxed at your side, request assistance from another adult in your household to help you encompass the fullest part of your chest area with the tape measure. Permit a bit of room for movement, a maximum of 1 inch. If you’re purchasing a jacket, use this measurement and add a few inches depending on how loose you desire the jacket to fit.
  • Height: Gauge from your head to toe without any shoes on. A door frame can serve as a measuring point, stand up straight against it and make sure to accurately mark the highest point of your head.
  • Arm length: Measure the length of your arm from the shoulder to the wrist. Don’t forget to stretch your arm out.

That seems simple, doesn’t it? However, that’s just the start. Women’s sizes are far more varied than those for men and children. Those whose measurements don’t fit within a typical standard guide will need to select clothing that fits better in sections labelled as petite, curvy, and tall, depending on their body type. There are also plus sizes and maternity sizes, and if that’s not enough, there’s also “vanity sizing”, which can really befuddle shoppers.

What is Vanity Sizing?

Technically referred to as a size inflation, vanity sizes are a common trend in fashion where a size number increases its corresponding measurement, often in an attempt to make buyers feel skinnier than what they would normally be. If anything, this also shows how clothing sizes have changed through the years. To avoid being confused by this trend, keep in mind the following tips, especially if you are buying online:

  • Always check the online store’s size guide
  • Read product reviews, comments, and ratings
  • Make sure to read all product information and details
  • Talk to the seller if possible

Are there clothing sizes based on height and weight?

As you would have guessed by now, this would be impossible because of the high diversity of women’s sizes when it comes to dimensions. To put it simply, a specific weight can come in different heights and body types, making it complicated, and even if you manage to match a height and weight, the body measurements can be entirely different from one person to another. If you want to ensure proper fit, always go by your specific body measurements.

Dressing for Your Body Type

  • Tall – if you stand 5’8” or above, you are most likely to find a good fit in the “Tall Section” especially if you are buying bottoms like jeans, trousers, and skirts.
  • Petite – for heights 5’3” and below, the “Petite Section” is a good place to shop from whether you are buying dresses or tops and bottoms.
  • Curvy – the “Curvy Section” ideally caters to women whose waist measurements are at least 7 inches smaller than their chest measurements, and hip measurement that are 10 inches or greater than their waistline.
  • Plus Size – this term may vary per country, but in general, this refers to those above the sizes 10 and XL, although some brands often use the term “curvy” as well to avoid sounding offensive. Not all brands carry plus sizes, so if you fall on the larger size of the chart, keep an eye on brands that offer plus sizes.
