The use of the body measurement information in Tables 1 and 2 will assist manufacturers in developing patterns and garments that are consistent with the current anthropometric characteristics of the population of interest. This practice should in turn reduce or minimize consumer confusion and dissatisfaction related to apparel sizing. (Also refer to ISO 3635 Size Designation Procedures.)View Less
1.1 These tables list body measurements of young adult female junior figure type, sizes 0 to 19. Although these are body measurements, they can be used as a baseline in designing apparel for young women in this size range when considering such factors as fabric type, ease for body movement, styling, and fit.
1.2 The junior body is younger, not fully developed, with a higher waistline than other women's size ranges.
1.3 The values stated in either acceptable SI units or inch-pound units shall be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other, without combining values in any way.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
