How to Measure

Waist

For lettered sizes: Use the waist and hip measurements as a guide to pick the right size for you.

For numbered sizes: lululemon pants fit like your favorite chinos. If you're a 32 in the pants you have at home, you'll likely be a 32 in lululemon pants. Bodies come in all shapes and sizes. Normally we select bottom sizes based off our waist size.  Men with a hockey bum might want to size up to accommodate your hip measurement.

Hip

Measuring your hip is simple, all you need is a tape measure and a full length mirror (or a friend). Wrap the tape measure around the roundest part of your bum and overlap the tape at the front. Turn to the side in the mirror to ensure that the tape measure is making a straight line parallel to the floor.

Length

Friends are helpful for this one. Stand with your feet about shoulder-width apart in running shoes. Measure from the very top of your inner leg to the bottom of your inner ankle. Repeat this process on your left leg and average out to achieve your most accurate length. You may want to err on the longer-side—short shorts are a yes, but short pants are a no.

Finding the Right Fit

If your waist measures 33", you're most likely going to need a size 34 pant. This is because lululemon has designed the pants to sit two to three inches below your natural waist. Looking for a good rule of thumb when it comes to fit? Measure your waist and add an inch.

If you think you're in between sizes, ask yourself how you want the pant to fit for the activity you'll be using them for.

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.
