What does ‘Junior Cut’ sizing mean?

As Internet shoppers ourselves, we know that getting the sizing right can be tough.  You’ll often see the term ‘Junior Cut’ in the description of our Women’s products.  This can be a real source of confusion, so we’ll straighten it out for you!  Picture yourself in a department store and put yourself in the Junior section.  Yep- where the music is a bit more recent and louder!

An item described as ‘Junior Cut’ tends to be narrrower and shorter than a Women’s size.  They are also designed to be more snug-fitting.  They typically do not fit a very curvy figure- if you are a pear-shape or have a fuller top, the fit is not likely to work on your body.  We have heard from some customers with a curvy body that Junior Cut items fit like a child’s shirt or bottom.  A junior size is cut to fit a body with fewer curves, smaller bust and less size difference between waist and hips.

A size small item that is Junior Cut would fit a Juniors (not ladies) 3-5; a medium is roughly a 7-9; a large would be about an 11-13.  Note that the numbering is even different from a Missy Cut.
