Athleta Size Guide for Women
How Does Athleta Sizing Run?
Athleta typically runs true to size (TTS). Approximately 10% of their products may run big. The other 90% typically runs TTS.
Their tops tend to fit true to size and bottoms are more forgiving. There were times where I was able to fit in an XS bottom, despite being a true size 6 in lululemon.
