Specifies a size coding scheme for ready-made garments based on actual body measurements over foundation garments. It also covers foundation garments. The scheme is shown in two charts, one covering average sizes and the other providing for slim hip fittings and full hip fittings, in combination with the bust and waist measurement. Bust, waist and hip measurements increase in 5 cm steps. The full ranges of body measurements, together with height and weight are tabulated in an appendix for average, short, tall, slim hip and full hip fittings; a similar table covers brassieres and bodysuits. Examples of labels for various garments which conform to This Standard are also appended.
