US: Cintas launches larger sized apparel line
Workwear company Cintas Corporation has launched women’s sized professional apparel designed for sizes 16W to 32W.
It said the new line was designed with unique proportions, different from misses, to provide a better fit.
"More than 62% of women in the US wear a size 12 or larger," said Christine Ward, senior manager of technical design. “Today, uniform apparel manufacturers offer larger sizes as an extension of their misses’ lines, which can be tight and poorly fitted.
"Cintas’ new women’s sizes are approximately 1 ½” – 2 ½” larger in the bust, waist and hips, providing women greater comfort."
The new range includes a selection of tailored dress apparel such as stylish skirts, slacks and blazers.
