Size Guide

  • how to measure

    find your perfect size

    For the most accurate results, have someone else measure you. Also, please keep in mind that it is best to measure while you're wearing undergarments, not a shirt or pants.

    bust:

    Place the measuring tape under your arms and measure around the fullest part of your bustline.

    waist:

    Measure around the narrowest part of your torso, usually above your belly button.

    hips:

    With your feet together, measure around the fullest part of your hips, usually at the top of your legs.

    inseam:

    Measure from the top of your inner thigh down to your ankle bone.

    who can wear petites?

    The most flattering petite fit not only addresses height, but proportions, too. Petite sizing is designed for women 5'4" and under, but there are other factors that determine who should wear petites. If you have narrow shoulders or proportionately shorter arms, you may be able to wear petite tops. If your legs are proportionately shorter than your torso, you may want to try petite pants and skirts.

    petites: It’s a proportion, not a size.®

    Christopher & Banks Petites offer the perfect fit for your size. We have proportionately adjusted the bust, waist and hip measurements - it's what makes you a petite and makes your sizing unique. We have taken some of our best Christopher & Banks styles and scaled them to petite sizing.
