Size Specific… What Sizes are Considered 'Plus Size'?, 12/01/2007
What Exactly is Considered Plus Size?
We receive emails all the time asking us what sizes are considered 'Plus Size.' Our frequent answer for PLUS goes something like this ...

According to PLUS, The term 'Plus Size' is an industry standard that applies to any women who is over a size 12. To be even more specific, the fashion industry identifies plus size as sizes 12-24, super size as sizes 4X-6X and extended size as 7X and up.

We reached out for another point of view to Susan Barone, owner of the curvy online store, Alwaysforme.com. She shared, "Plus sizes are sizes 14W - 24W. Super sizes and extended sizes are used interchangeably for sizes 26W and above. Sometimes the size 26W is included in plus size."

The letter 'W', when associated with a size (i.e. 14W) means that this is a women's size vs. a junior size. And for any of you curvy women out there who have tried on a junior size 18 vs. an 18W know that there is definitely a difference when it comes to sizing for women and juniors!

Coming in the next issue, look for more industry terms and information you 'Need to know!'
