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.
