Abstract:

The aim of this work is to improve the system of clothing sizes by the determining body measurements of adult women in the Goransko-primorska County of the Republic of Croatia. The system of clothing sizes was determined based on the results of anthropometric investigations of a specific population. Sorting data on body measurements results in their grouping in garment sizes, and based on this data, size-charts with significant differences in body shape and body proportions of a certain group of the population are created. In the system of garment sizes certain body dimensions define a garment size and create a scale determined by the standard. The standard characterizes body shape based on two dimensions of measurements, whereby the first is the basic (bust girth), and the second - a dependent variable (body height). This study was conducted on a sample of 1,104 subjects aged 20-85 years classified into seven age groups. Statistical analysis of the results, i.e. principal component analysis, was used to determine garment sizes and the presence of certain categories of them in the population measured in the Goransko-primorska County of the Republic of Croatia.
