At that time, they were similar in concept to the EN European clothing size standard, although individual manufacturers have always deviated from them, sometimes significantly. However, as a result of various cultural pressures, most notably vanity sizing , North American clothing sizes have drifted substantially away from this standard over time, and now have very little connection to it. Instead, they now follow the more loosely defined standards known as U.
Men's standard sizes were probably developed first during the American Revolutionary War , and they were in regular use by the American army during the War of for ready-made uniforms Felsenthal These were based on the chest measurement, with other measurements being assumed to be either proportional the circumference of the neck, waist, hips, and thighs or easily altered length of the inseam Felsenthal As this was largely successful in men, the same approach was attempted in the early 20th century for women using the bust as the sole measurement Felsenthal However, this proved unsuccessful because women's bodies have far more variety in shape.
A woman with an hourglass figure and a woman with an apple-shaped figure who have the same bust size will not have the same waist or hip sizes. This was a significant problem for mail-order companies, and several attempts at predictable, standard sizing were made Felsenthal In the s, the statisticians Ruth O'Brien and William Shelton received a Works Progress Administration grant to conduct the most ambitious effort to solve this problem.
Their team measured almost 15, women across the US. After discovering the complex diversity of women's actual sizes, which produced five to seven different body shapes, they proposed a three-part sizing system.
Each size would be the combination of a single number, representing an upper body measurement, plus an indicator for height short, regular, and long and an indication for girth slim, regular, and stout.
The various combinations of height and girth resulted in nine different sizes for each numerical upper-body measurement, which was highly impractical for manufacturing Felsenthal As a result, O'Brien and Shelton's work was rejected. In , the National Bureau of Standards invented a new sizing system, based on the hourglass figure and using only the bust size to create an arbitrary standard of sizes ranging from 8 to 38, with an indication for height short, regular, and tall and lower-body girth plus or minus.
The resulting commercial standard was not widely popular, and was declared voluntary in and withdrawn entirely in It has not been widely adopted. Women's sizes are divided into various types, depending on height. These charts give an indication of size only and are by no means exact as they vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, sometimes by a full inch up and down.
There are multiple size types, designed to fit somewhat different body shapes.
That way, assuming a simple two-inch grade, if the standard says size 8 measurements should be and size 10 should be , Company A might use as its basis for size 10, and Company B might assign to a 10, while at the same time Company C could manufacture a size 8 using Clothing bust, waist and hip measurements in inches, with conversions to cm for UK dress sizes, including all the common dress sizes from 8 through to 18 (8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18). These sizes are also used in Australia and New Zealand. A size twelve for a dress has the chest measurement of 38 to 40 inches, a waist of to inches and the height of five feet and five inches to five feet and ten inches. A size twelve women's dress is a size fourteen in Great Britain and a size forty-two in standard European sizes.
