lululemon Asia fit guide

lululemon knows that when it comes to sizing, there’s no “one size fits all” formula. They understand that sizing and proportions differ between their patrons and strive to offer products that fit every individual woman so that she may perform and feel her best.

lululemon now offers plus sizing (sizes 0 to 20) as well as Asian sizing (more petite offerings). Their extended sizing is offered in their more popular styles such as Align pants, Wunder Trains, etc.

This effort to provide a customized fit for their patrons has enabled lululemon to dominate the activewear market.

Below we’ll go through what the differences are between normal and Asia Fit and how you can purchase lululemon that fits you perfectly.

lululemon Normal Fit Versus Asia Fit

Global fit is also considered “normal” fit. The only difference is in the US we measure using inches while the rest of the world uses centimeters.

The major differences between Global and Asia Fit include the following:

  • Narrower waistbands
  • Slightly longer down the hip
  • Better (slimmer) fit on the knee and calves
  • Shorter inseams

The differences offer a more custom fit for women who are petite.

For example, in the US/CAN, a 7/8 pant inseam is 25″. In Asia, the inseam for a 7/8 pant is 24″. And full-length pants in the US/CAN are 28″ compared to 26″ in Asia sizing.

While this chart states that the inseam is 29″ inches, it actually is not what is reflected on their Asia website. The inseams are actually much shorter and depend on the style of pant or top.

We created a chart to make it easier to compare Asia Fit and Normal sizing:

Asia Fit Size US/CAN Size
XS 0
S 2-4
M 4-6
L 8
XL 10

You should also take into consideration that Asia Fit will be slimmer around the knees, ankles and thighs. And for tops, Asia Fit will be shorter from shoulder to bottom hem.

How Can I Tell If Something is Asia Fit?

The size on the tag should be a dead giveaway. Asia fit uses lettered instead of numbered sizing.
