Best Answer

Misses are for people who have a more slender, skinnier frame and waistline and are technically geared toward the teenager population who are still growing. Women's sizes are for the older woman with the curvier figure (not to be confused with overweight).

Difference between a size 12 and 12W?

There is a difference between a Misses size 12 and a Women's size 12W. Traditional plus or "women's" sizing is cut with a deeper arm hole, lower and larger bust-line, and larger waist compared to hip ratio than "Misses" sizes. This results in 12W being about one size larger than a Misses Size 12. This cut difference also means a better fit for differing body types. Those women with a traditional hour glass or pear body type will usually find a Misses size range fits better. Women who have a rounder, more apple shaped figure and carry their weight mainly in the bust and abdomen, will find the traditional plus-size clothing or Women's Sizes will fit their figures better.

What is the difference between miss and women's size?

Women's sizes are usually for a fatter woman than a misses size will fit. That's pretty much the difference. Why would you answer a question when you don't know the answer? That's not the difference; misses sizing is generally geared towards teenage women who haven't fully developed the curves they will. CURVES - as in hips, breasts, etc. Women's sizes are for...women. Misses sizes are odd-numbered; women's sizes are even numbered. (Do you think a size 2 is bigger than a size 13?) Also: designers (like Marc Jacobs, not Scussy) use women's sizes or the European equivalent.
