HOW TO MEASURE
Use a measuring tape, over your undergarments. You can also use a string, and then line it up to a yardstick.
Chest / Bust: Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your bust.
Hip: Stand with your heels together and measure around the fullest part of your hips.
Inseam: Using a pant that fits you well, measure from the crotch seam to the hem.
Low Waist: Measure 2 to 3 inches below your natural waist. Keep one finger between the tape and your body.
Natural Waist: Measure around your waist at narrowest point (usually about your navel). Keep one finger between the tape and your body.
Sleeves: With your arm bent at 90 degrees, place your hand on your hip. Measure from the back of your neck to your shoulder, elbow, and wrist.
Petite: For heights from 5’0″ to 5’4″.

Women’s Coats and Dresses
Misses’ sizes, also known as ladies’ clothing sizes, have even numbers in the U.S. sizing system. The women’s clothing with these sizes may be followed by a “P” to denote that they are petite ladies’ clothing, for women who are 5’3″ (about 160 cm) or shorter.
With clothing styles made to flatter full-figured women, plus-size women’s clothing has U.S. sizes with even numbers, starting at 14 or 16 and going up. Specialty plus-size clothing stores may have sizes beyond 28.
When U.S. women’s clothing sizes are denoted with odd numbers, they are juniors’ sizes. Juniors’ clothing is sized and styled to flatter teenagers and young women.
