SIZE CHARTS AND SIZING

Size charts and sizing  are an extremely important part of the production process. Once the base size is perfected, the sizes need to be created from this base size. Each size needs to stay as close to the original design as possible. Due to the way the human body increases in size, it is not possible to have all sizes look exactly the same but bigger.  Some styles  only look right in a small range of sizes, while others can look fine in any size.

It is important to decide from the outset what type of fit is required, what the biggest and smallest sizes should be, how many sizes there should be and what the increments should be between sizes.  Then you need to decide how to label the sizes. Should they be labelled Small, Medium and Large ? Or Size 1, Size 2 and Size 3 ? Or 8, 10 and 12 ? Or 34″, 36″ and 38″ ?

HOW MANY SIZES DO I NEED ?

For the production any factory would want to have a good run of garments per colour per  size. The more sizes and colours you have, the smaller the run. The smaller the run , the more the garment will cost. A small business on a limited budget will want to keep the production costs as low as possible by having only as many  sizes as they need.

It may be that the style lends itself to a particular body size and shape anyhow. So you may decide to have Small, Medium and Large with 6″ ( 15 cms ) between the smallest and the largest sizes. That would be a fairly standard range of sizes with 2″ ( 5 cms ) increments between sizes. Or you may decide to cover a larger range of sizes using the same amount of sizes. In this case you may have a 3″ ( 7.5 cms ) grade.
