How to measure your body

a: Measure your chest over the fullest part of your bust while wearing a bra that fits.

b: When shopping for a bra, you should take another measurement directly under the bust.

c: Measure your waist at the narrowest point.

d: Your seat measurement should be taken around the fullest part of your seat.

e: Inseam is measured from the top of the inside of your leg down to the floor.

 

H&M petite sizes generally fit best for frames under 5' 5'' or 164 cm tall, with a more appropriate sleeve and torso length and leg inseam. Look for the “P” (i.e. “34P”) when viewing an item. Since H&M sometimes offer a wide range of sizes for the same item, you may need to scroll down in the size selector to find the “P”.

How to measure without a ruler or tape measure?

If you don't have a ruler or tape measure handy, you can try to measure with a standard credit card, which has a width of 3 ⅜ inch or 8.56 cm and a height of 2 ⅛ inch or 5.4 cm.

If you do a lot of online apparel shopping, accurate body measurement using a tape measure is a must. The actual tape you choose doesn’t matter that much. This retractable one is very easy to use, and the fact it uses both CM and IN is extremely helpful.
