What Do Women's Clothing Sizes and Size Numbers Mean? Get the Right Fit
I am not a tailor but I work closely
with the clothing industry responsible for clothing factory workers with
various uniforms. Finding the right size for the right people is
always an interesting issue. You can buy the perfect clothing
size for a person's body type and it still might not be the right fit.
For example, the clothes may have the wrong size tag or the wearers personal
preference (baggier vs fitted jeans etc) may override the correct fit.
Here are some raw sizing basics that might help you get the right size and fit. This article I'll simply get into what all of those letters and numbers translate to in terms of size.
I'll dedicate one section to each size.
