Size number

symbol indicated on a garment and its tag, expressing the average height of the figure and fixed dimensions of circumference for specific groups of women, men, girls, and boys; this should be in harmony with the effective systems for the sizing of garments manufactured industrially. Number values for the basic dimensions of the figure are given in cm in the following order: height of figure, circumference of chest, circumference of waist (men) or circumference of seat (women). (182-104-90 indicates a garment for wear by a figure with a height of 182 cm (± 3 cm), a chest circumference of 104 cm, and a waist circumference of 90 cm).
