As we have added more and more Female specific fit items to our line, there has been more and more confusion on the fit – Ladies’ vs. Juniors’ in particular.
While there is no Golden Rule that all apparel manufacturers follow, there is a simple explanation:
Juniors’ Fit apparel items are generally designed with younger girls’ in mind that have a straighter body shape. In retail, you may see Junior fit products as odd numbers, i.e. 3,5,7,9, etc.
– VS –
Ladies’ Fit apparel are designed for any age, however typically allow more room in the bust and hip area than a Juniors’ product would have. In retail, Ladies’ sizing is even numbers, i.e. 2, 4, 6, 8, etc.
To help clarify the situation and aid Holloway customers to make the most accurate decision, in our most recent catalog we have added a fit chart, as well as an icon system to help guide you to the appropriate fit. Check out the chart below or bookmark our Webpage for future reference.
