These tables list body measurements of children, sizes 2 to 6x/7. Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D13 on Textiles , these tables were withdrawn in January 2009 in accordance with section 10.5.3.1 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.
1.1 These tables list body measurements of children, sizes 2 to 6x/7. Although these measurements are body measurements, they can be used as a baseline in designing apparel for children in this age range when taking into account such factors as fabric type, ease for body movement, styling, and fit.
1.2 The values stated in either acceptable metric units or other 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.
1.3 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.
