"How do I compare misses sizes to a junior sizes? I really don't know which I should order or which size would be a better fit."

Get out your measuring tape because there is a difference between each size range. The questions here is how does a Misses size compare to a Junior size.

In an earlier post, we covered the differences between the two size ranges but here are the measurements to determine specifically which Junior size comes closest to an "8" in the Misses size range.

There is one other factor which can throw off all "sizing" and measurements - how generous the manufacturer is in their idea of sizing. The easiest way to put it is this...when it comes to comparing sizes, the more expensive the brand, the more true to size and the more generous the wearing ease.

Have you ever had the opportunity to try on various sweaters of the same size but from different labels and manufacturers? Try it sometimes - you will be amazed.

Let's start by comparing Misses sizes to Junior sizes.

The difference is not just in the finished measurements. You can also tell the difference in the construction and finishing method. The high end garments will be full fashioned (individual garment pieces are made separately then assembled) rather than completed using the cut and sew method.

The big ticket items also provide you with more wearing ease above and beyond the design ease.

Please note that the measurements given below are your actual measurements not the finished measurements of the garment itself.

Also, the style of a garment will affect how it fits - outerwear [jackets, vests, coats and cardigans] has varying amounts of added wearing ease - they are designed to be layered over other garments.

Certain sweater styles have "negative" wearing ease...in other words they are literally smaller than your actual body measurements. Product Disclaimer:
