Carhartt Sizing for Women

Determining the correct size is one of the hardest things to do when ordering clothes online and we find that women’s sizing causes even more difficulty. It’s very important that you know your measurements in order to get the correct size, and this guide will help you understand exactly how to measure for different items so that you get the correct size the first time. See the images below to see exactly where to measure.

Jackets & Coats: You will need to measure your bust to best determine which size you need.

Bibs: To find the correct bib size, you need your hip measurement and inseam. Please note: You may want to buy a larger size if you plan on layering clothes under your bibs.

Jeans & Pants: For jeans and pants you will need your hip measurement as well as the inseam to find the right fit for you.

Knits & Shirts: The knits and shirts are determined by bust size.

Sweatshirts: Sweatshirts are also measured by bust size.

Bust: To measure your bust, bring the tape around your back, keeping it parallel to the floor. Measure the fullest part of your bust for the most accurate measurement.


Hip: Be sure to measure the fullest part of the hip while keeping it level with the floor. Please keep in mind that the widest part of your hip may differ from person to person. We suggest having somebody help you determine where to measure or measure yourself in front of a mirror to find the correct placement.


Inseam: The best way to measure your inseam is to take a pair of pants that fit you well and lay them out flat, then measure from the crotch along the seam to the hem. Some of the inseam measurements go directly by the inches, some are in Short, Regular or Tall. If your inseam is 23-30 inches, you will need short, 31-32 inches is regular and 33-34 inches is tall.


Please note: We measured our jeans while standing up to best depict where to begin and end your measurements but it is much easier to measure pants when they are laying flat.
