A proposed new sizing system for Naval womens clothing has been developed. Based on the findings of a sizing evaluation of current womens uniforms Mellian, et al, the new system is designed to 1 better accommodate the proportional diversity found among Navy women, particularly noted differences between White and Black women, 2 bring sizing for Navy womens clothing into closer conformity with commercial sizing, and 3 develop a single sizing system for all lower body garments. Sizing tables for the proposed system presented in this report, are based in part on proposed new commercial standards and include sizes to accommodate short, medium, and tall women as well as proportional variations represented by junior, misses, and womens hip sizes. An explanation of how various design values were arrived at is also included in this report. The authors caution that the proposed system is as yet untried and recommend thorough fit-testing before wholesale use is made of it.
