Note: Sizes vary depending on the brand of the hoodie you’ll buy. So, to get your correct size and the size of your hoodie accurately, you should consider using a measuring tape to measure your size.

How to Measure Yourself

If you have someone else measure you, your measurements will be the most accurate. Ensure that your feet are directly beneath your shoulders and that your arms are at your sides.

Chest

Measure the circumference at the fullest part of your chest and across your shoulder blades.

Waist

At your natural waistline, measure the circumference of your waist. The crease that forms when you bend to the side is your natural waistline.

Hip

Over your hip bones and around the fullest part of your buttocks, measure the circumference of your hips.

Sleeve

Measure your sleeve length from the center of your back neck to the top of your shoulder, then down to your wrist.

Find a Great Style and Design

After knowing the sizes you can choose from female hoodies, it is now time to find a good style and design. There are numerous hoodies with the same print available in both men’s and women’s styles. The house sweaters are usually the same for both.

Gray, navy, and black are the obvious choices for the most wear, but khaki, off-white, and brownish tones are also viable options. Bold reds and yellows will make a statement, but a mint green, pink, or purple will make a more subtle statement.

You can also opt to purchase women’s hoodies with prints since you can find many such in the women’s section. Or you can go minimal, as women nowadays also love wearing minimalist hoodies for a great OOTD.
