"I want a Herman Miller Aeron chair"

I'm 5'-10" and on the cusp between size B and size C. Anyone have a recommendation as to which is most comfortable for my height and where I could pick one up? I want PostureFit (not the lumbar pad) and full arm adjustment and tilt limiter controls.

What size Aeron chair should I get? A better size chart than Herman Miller's.

a better Herman Miller Aeron sizing chart

What size Aeron chair should you get? Check your height and weight (in pounds).

When I got my Herman Miller Aeron chair at a dot-bomb sale after the first bubble burst, picking an A, B, or C size was the most difficult decision. Herman Millers's official sizing chart for the Aeron chair is filled with gray areas, requiring you to eventually have to find a selection of their chairs to sit in to determine which size is the best.

Recently, as I was shopping for a second Aeron chair (this one for my wife), I found a clearer, more definitive sizing chart from They claim to have used the experience of fitting over 50,000 clients to Aeron chairs and have developed their own simplified sizing chart.

Basically, what they have found is that if your are 5'-10" tall or more, or have an inseam of 30" or more, you need a size C chair. From 5'-3" up to 5'-10" you are most likely a size B or maybe a C if you weigh more than 170 lbs. For those of you from 4'-10" up to 5'-3" you are most likely a size A or possible a B if you weigh more than 130 lbs.

This reference is particularly useful to help select a chair size when the three sizes are not available for you to actual sit in. Height and weight are used here as key indicators of suitable chair-size choice. Since the chairs are not returnable after purchasing from HM, you need to take great care in your sizing.

OfficeDesigns also notes that this reference "does not have clearly delineated lines at the extremes of height and weight because people may well find a size that suits them perfectly even if their exact height or weight in not represented here."

Good luck with your shopping, and sizing. You and your back will love the Aeron chair, it's definitely the best office chair that I've ever owned even if it does have some bad karma stains from Web 1.0 ;)

Not too bulky and stylish look is essential for counter top use.
