    Significance and Use

    4.1 The use of the body measurement information in Table 1 and Table 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.)

    4.2 Three-dimensional avatars depicting each of the missy sizes and sub category curvy and straight on certain measures, were created by Alvanon, Inc. and included in this standard to assist manufacturers in visualizing the posture, shape, and proportions generated by the measurements charts in the accompanying tables. (Avatar 1-6) See Fig. 1 and Fig. 2.

    1. Scope

    1.1 These tables list body measurements of adult female misses figure Type sizes 00 through 20. Although these are body measurements, they can be used as a baseline in designing apparel for Missy in this size range when considering such factors as fabric type, ease for body movement, styling, and fit.

    1.2 These tables list body measurements for the complete range of Missy sizing.

    1.3 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

    1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
