Sizing and Fit

Author
  • Susan Ashdown (Cornell University)

Abstract

The three papers in this session address the complex topic of the relationship between clothing and the body, each from a different perspective and each resonating with the others. The papers present an investigation of the parameters of grading and the resultant sizing systems, an analysis of individual's perceived sizes compared to the sizes selected using anthropometric measures, and a gallery of images documenting the inadequacy of current systems to fit the range of body sizes, proportions, and stances in the population.
