Women's Sizing - Tops and Bottoms
Measurements are in inches, unless otherwise noted.
*TOPS - Chest is generally the best size predictor. However, if your Low Hips are larger than the size indicated by your Chest, and the garment will cover your Low Hips, consider buying the size indicated for your Low Hips.
**BOTTOMS - Low Hip is usually the best size predictor. However, if your Natural Waist is larger than the size indicated for your Low Hip measurement, consider buying the size indicated by your Natural Waist.
Though each Patagonia® product is designed and shaped specifically for its intended use, we can generalize our fit descriptions in four ways:
Conforms to the body’s contours.
Closer-fitting. Slim-fitting technical garments may be worn over baselayers and light midlayers.
Neither slim nor oversized. Regular-fitting technical garments may be worn over heavier midlayers.
Drapes loosely on the body.
How to Measure
With elbow bent, measure from the center (back) of neck to elbow and down to wrist.
Measure around your chest/bust, just under armpit.
Measure around waist at the smallest circumference.
Stand, feet together, and measure around the largest circumference at hips.
Measure around the fullest part of the hand, not including thumb.
Take a pair of pants that fit well and measure from the crotch to bottom of leg. All pants come with a finished hem.
Measurements refer to body size, not garment dimensions, and are in inches unless otherwise noted.
