Apparel Terminology 101. Part 3: Fits

I trust you have enjoyed our Apparel Terminology 101 sections 1 and 2 and are now looking forward to Part 3 on FITS.


Fitted: Designed to  follow the shape of the body, particularly in junior and women’s wear. This is often achieved through side seams that taper in at the waist.

Slouchy: A type of clothing that is soft and relatively unstructured. It is not tight fitting or rigid in shape.

Flowy: A lightweight fabric without bottom edge binding or characteristics that would make it clingy or stay close to the body.
