BS EN 13402-2:2002
Size designation of clothes. Primary and secondary dimensions

Different sizing systems in Europe mean that different clothing size designations in use in European countries can fit people with identical or almost identical body measurements.

BS EN 13402 Part 2 is the Standard that’s a reference document for a standardized European size designation system for different types of garment.

BS EN 13402 specifies primary and secondary dimensions for specified types of garments to be used in combination with BS EN 13402-1.

The primary aim of this standard is the establishment of a size designation system that can be used by manufacturers and retailers to indicate to consumers (in a simple, direct and meaningful manner) the body dimensions of the person that the garment is intended to fit.

Provided person’s body size (as indicated by the specified dimensions) has been determined, in accordance with BS EN 13402-1 this designation system will facilitate the choice of garments that fit.

The size designation system is based on body and not on garment measurements. Choice of garment measurements is normally determined by the designer and the manufacturer who will make appropriate allowances to accommodate the type, position of wear, style, cut and fashion elements of the garment.
