Does Roxy Run Small Or Big? (Sizing Review And Tips)

Roxy jeans, dresses, and tops run small, but their swimwear is true to size.

Roxy is a popular women’s clothing brand that is known for its trendy and stylish designs.

The brand primarily deals in beachwear but has slowly started expanding in other product categories too.

But what about their sizing?

There are a few general tips that can help you determine if a particular style from Roxy is likely to run small.

In this article, I am going to go over them and suggest how you can find the best fit for your body type when buying from the Roxy website. But if you directly want to check out their products currently on sale, you can click on the button below.

How Do Roxy Clothes Fit?


While most clothes at Roxy run small, their swimwear section is an exception and runs true to size.

The brand is known for its bright colors, modern design, and excellent quality. The clothing is also very affordable, so you can always find something within your budget. This is the reason why people continue to purchase stuff from Roxy despite their wonky sizing.

Discount Tip 👉 You can also check for your favorite Roxy products on third-party retailers, as many of them would sell products at a bigger discount. For example, I always find a great deal when I go through the Roxy collection on Nordstrom.

So what size should you get when buying a Roxy item?

Here’s what I recommend. Go to a page on a Roxy retailer’s website that has a size chart button, such as this one. Now, at the right, you will see a small link that says Size Guides.

Now, compare your measurements with the size chart, and simply go one size bigger than what their size chart recommends, especially if you are in-between sizes.

This way, you can be sure that the garment will fit perfectly and that you’ll be comfortable in it.

The only exception to this rule is what Roxy is actually known for – swimwear.

At Roxy, there are swimsuits available in a variety of sizes and fits to suit any body type. Whether you’re a stocky 200-pound girl or a petite or average-size girl, there are swimsuits available at Roxy that will fit and flatter your body type.

When buying a swimsuit, go true to size.

What size should you get at Roxy?

While you should go true to size when buying a Roxy swimsuit, there are also a few other considerations that you need to make.

Refer to the size chart

To make sure you select the correct size, take your measurements and compare them to the size chart available on this page.

For stocky girls, full-coverage swimsuits are a great option. These types of suits typically have more fabric and offer more coverage than other suits.

Tummy control swimsuits are also a great option for stocky girls. These suits have special panels or features that help to slim and sculpt the tummy area.

For petite or average-size girls, athletic-fit swimsuits are a great option. These suits are designed to fit close to the body and offer support in the bust and tummy areas. Some athletic-fit swimsuits also have built-in bra cups for added support.

No matter what your body type, Roxy has a swimsuit that will fit and flatter your figure. So if you’re a stocky 200-pound girl, petite, or average-size girl, head over to Roxy’s website to find the perfect swimsuit for you.

Which Roxy Items Run Small?

Roxy ClothingSizing
TopsRun small.
DressesRun small.
SwimwearTrue to size.
Jeans and BottomsRun small.


Roxy tops tend to run smaller than most fast-fashion brands out there. If you are unsure about what size to order, it is recommended that you size up for the best fit. 

That way, you can always adjust the size if your garment is too big but you cannot make a smaller top bigger.


Dresses from Roxy also tend to run small, but this is not 100% certain. Depending upon your body type, you may need to go true to size in Roxy dresses.

Therefore, it is very important to check the product measurements before you make a purchase. Doing so will ensure a comfortable and flattering fit. 


Roxy’s swimwear is mostly true-to-size.

Swimwear is what Roxy is really known for, and it’s clearly the category that they have worked the hardest on, especially when it comes to sizing.

Their swimwear size guide is perfect and even suggests the best way to measure your body.

This kind of precision in sizing is rare for most swimwear brands out there, so I recommend that you give Roxy a try if swimming is something that you enjoy.

Jeans and Bottoms

Roxy’s bottoms run small across categories. These include skirts, jeans, trousers, and pretty much everything else that covers your leg.

Sizing up is necessary, and I recommend that you take their sizing chart (for bottoms) with a pinch of salt.

Does Roxy make plus size clothing?

Roxy makes plus-size clothing and especially offers a large number of sizes in the swimwear category.

As a leading surf and lifestyle brand, Roxy offers stylish clothing for women of all shapes and sizes.

The brand has built a reputation for producing quality clothing that is both stylish and practical. You are not going to be struggling for air in their clothing, that’s for sure.

Although I do think that there should be more diverse sizes in their regular (non-swimwear) collections and categories too.

Final Remarks 

Roxy swimwear is true to size, but most of its other clothing runs small.

If you’re looking for fashionable and functional beachwear, Roxy is a great option to consider. With a wide range of sizes available, you’re sure to find something that fits well.

Additionally, Roxy’s clothing is made from high-quality materials, so you can be confident that it will last.
