In general, girls' clothing is designed for the more childlike body of younger girls, whereas juniors' clothing is designed to accommodate the more hourglass-shaped body of a developing teenager.

    How can someone convert men's size to women's dress size?

    A:

    The easiest way to convert men's sizes to women's is to take accurate measurements of the bust, waist and hips. A general rule of thumb is that a man should go three inches larger in the waist. If a man's waist is 36 inches, buying a dress that would fit a woman who has a 39 to 40 inch waist should fit well.
