This table lists body measurements of the adult female “plus” figure type, sizes 14W through 32W.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D13 on Textiles, this table was withdrawn in January 2013 in accordance with section 10.5.3.1 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by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 This table lists body measurements of the adult female "plus" figure type, sizes 14W through 32W. Although these are body measurements, they can be used as a baseline in designing apparel for female figures in this size range when considering such factors as fabric type, desired ease for body movement, styling, and fit.
1.2 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.
2. Referenced Documents (purchase separately) The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
