Additional National Sizing Survey Data Released

Additional body measurement data taken as part of SizeUSA - the National Sizing Survey conducted in 13 cities by the Textile/Clothing Technology Corp. ([TC] 2), Cary, N.C., and sponsored by the US Department of Commerce and other industry participants - is now available from [TC] 2. A preliminary review of the data shows that waists increase the most with age, most of the 6,310 women surveyed are pear-shaped, and most of the 3,691 men surveyed have chests larger than their hips. "We expect that sponsors and purchasers of the report data will incorporate the findings into their sizing specifications to produce better-fitting garments for a larger portion of the US population," said Karen Davis, marketing/communications specialist, [TC] 2.
