Q:

What size is a 14 in a girls' size, and is the same size in a juniors' size?

A:

A girl's size 14 is designed for a girl who is 60 to 62 inches in height with a 32-inch bust, a 26.5-inch waist and 34.5-inch hips. This is equivalent to a juniors' size 1 or 3.

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. Clothing in the juniors' section is often trendier and may be tighter fitting and more revealing than clothing in the girls' section. In addition, juniors' pants are often longer than the equivalent girls' size.

    Do you wear a belt with suspenders?

    A:

    Belts and suspenders are both designed to hold up pants and should not be worn together. Not only is it redundant to do so, but it is a fashion mistake. Real Men Real Style, a men's fashion website, describes how the combination of belts and suspenders creates an unflattering rectangle on the torso.
