Everything You Need to Know About Uniqlo’s Sizing

Should you size up?

Last Updated on April 4, 2023

It took me a while to get into it, but now I’m truly obsessed with Uniqlo (and not just their thermals). But if you haven’t ordered from them before, you might find yourself wondering whether their sizes run big, small or somewhere in the middle.

There’s nothing more frustrating than shelling out your hard-earned cash on a new dress or top, only to find it doesn’t fit properly. You might know what size you are, but every fashion brand seems to have a different sizing system. Frustrating doesn’t even cut it.

Chances are you fit into a size 12 in one store, but the same size will too big or too small when you shop at another brand.

Uniqlo’s minimalist pieces and essential basics are what it’s known for, and it’s not worth missing out on their fantastic quality and simple designs just because of sizing.

Do Uniqlo sizes run small or big?

Uniqlo’s clothing tends to run on the smaller side, offering a more form-fitting look than the oversized look that’s trending right now.

For those who prefer this look, you can get your usual size. But if you prefer something a little baggier, it might be a good idea to size up or even buy two sizes to make sure you’re not disappointed.

How do I know my size at Uniqlo?

Finding the perfect size can make all the difference in how comfortable and confident you feel in your clothes. Luckily, Uniqlo makes it easy for you to determine your size by providing a handy size chart for each item on their website and app.

By taking a quick glance at the size chart, you can find the perfect size for you.

Keep in mind that each item has its own unique size chart, so if you want to be extra careful, you should look for each item you’re buying.

Do Uniqlo oversized T-shirts shrink?

The brand’s T-shirts are known for their exceptional ability to maintain their size and shape after washing and drying. 

These T-shirts are highly resistant to significant shrinkage, and even any slight shrinkage is barely noticeable and does not affect the fit or comfort. 

Just another reason we love Uniqlo!
