Height and Bone Structure

Height and Bone Structure/How to Dress

Your height and bone structure are also very important when choosing what to wear and how to accessorize. To assess your bone structure, measure your wrist.

  • You have fine bones if your wrist measurement is 5½ inches (14 cm) or less
  • You have medium bones if your wrist measurement is 5½ – 6½ inches (14 – 16cm) 
  • You have grand bones if your wrist measurement is 6½ inches (16 cm) 

To find out whether you are petite, average or tall use the chart below. 

Petite 5’3” (160cm) and under
Average – 5’3” (160cm) – 5’7” (170cm)
Tall 5’7” and over

You can be any combination between the different bone structures and the different height scales. Most commonly, however, the petite woman has fine to medium bones. The tall woman can be with fine, medium and grand bones. 
Knowing your type of bone structure and your height will help you a great deal with picking your jewelries, fabrics and patterns, which is a vital part of developing your individual style.
