Abstract: The purpose of this study was twofold. First to investigate the sizing of physical education uniforms and secondly, to develop a costume which would fit a wider range of sizes. Specifically, the problem was: (1) to compare the measurements of a sample of seventh grade, tenth grade, and college freshmen girls with those of three companies manufacturing uniforms and, (2) to find out how well the required uniform was liked. The sample consisted of 129 girls in the seventh grade and 131 girls in the tenth grade who attended school in Charlotte, North Carolina. The college freshmen sample consisted of 144 girls who attended The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Body measurements of bust, waist, and hip were taken of each girl, averaged, and compared to each of three company standards, to the government standard and to the pattern standard. Back waist measurement was taken and compared to the government standard and the pattern standard.
