Given a measurable set of positive measure, it is not difficult to show that if and only if is equal to its convex hull minus a set of measure zero. We investigate the stability of this statement: If is small, is close to its convex hull? Our main result is an explicit control, in arbitrary dimension, on the measure of the difference between and its convex hull in terms of .
