Women Clothing Size & Fit Terms Tips
You will find sizing references under many women clothing details.
This will inform you how the sizing runs for that specific product, example:
1. True to size
2. Runs small, please refer to product measurements
3. Runs big, please refer to product measurements
Choose the Right Fit
Not all clothing is created equal in the “Fit” terms, example:
1. Slim Fit
A slim-fit clothing item is one that is fitted to your body with very little to no excess fabric. These pieces are always highly stretchy and form-hugging.
2. Regular Fit
These are items that fit closer to the body, but are not tight. Meant to be slightly loose around the body, but not at all baggy. Like a suit, tailored to the body's natural curves.
3. Relaxed Fit
Items that are significantly larger than a regular fit, usually offer an extra 2" to 4” than standard chest/bust size. These clothes are loose-fitting and often slouches.
4. Oversized Fit
For items that are meant to appear too large, but still put together and flattering. Super slouchy, voluminous, and less structured. An item designed with an oversized fit is still true to size because it is meant to be oversized. This allows flexibility to size down 1 or 2 sizes for a more fitted look and is available to more people.
Size measurements refer to the measurements of the person that each size will fit.
