衣服サイズの違いに対する適合についての評価--着用者の好みのサイズのパンツについて Assessment of fit for different garment sizes: preferred pant size of wearers
We asked 58 young women to select their preferred pant size after trying on pants of various sizes. The wearers and third party observers assessed how well the pants fit at different parts of the body. The results were as follows: 1. Fifty percent of the wearers selected a smaller size than their actual size as their preferred size. 2. As to size selection, wearers whose waists were larger than that of the standard size preferred a good fit at the waist. 3. Regarding the degree of fit in each region, the observers tended to assess the degree of fit over the entire body, while there was no correlation between the degree of fit at the waist and that at the hip among the wearers.
