Kids wear


There are many types of women·s apparel, including dresses, social apparel, suits, outerwear, sportwear, activewear, & lingerie. There are also speciality categories, such as bridal gowns & maternity clothes, & a huge array of accessories.


Thus we can classify women·s wear on the following bases :



Each size range caters to a different figure type. Women·s size ranges include Missy, Petite, & Plus sizes. Missy sizes 6 to 16 are for the mature female figure, ht. approx. 5·7··. For eg. Adidas Missy Elliott Respect ME has got a wide collection of tracksuits, polo tees, etc. in missy size.

Petite sizes are created for women who is less than 5·4·· tall. Sizes ranges from 0 to 16. The 579 Store, CK Jeanswear, Ralph Lauren etc. have a fairly large selection of cute clothing for petite girls. € Plus sizes range from 14W to 32W. Prestigious manufacturers such as Givenchy , Revolutions, Ellen Tracy, & Anne Klein II are now catering to these special sizes.

Better to Budget. Typically price range is a step up to budget. The fabrics and styling are also of better quality than lower-priced items. Sportswear, coordinates and dresses may all appear in better lines. Jones New York and Anne Klein are two examples of a better-priced line. Budget. The low end of the apparel spectrum usually retails for budget prices. Often casual sportswear -- jeans and Tshirts - falls into this category & sometimes they are a knockoff of higher priced designer items. Old Navy, Cherokee, and Mossimo are a few popular budget labels.
