### size and measures

 In Italy the measures in order to establish the physical structure are 3, and they differ from man to woman: for the man they are, - height - chest - waist; for the woman they are, - stature - circumference to the chest - circumference hip. With these a characteristic acronym for every size, formed from a fraction is compiled to whose numerator figures two numerical indices: the 1° is the thorax circumference expressed in cm, and the second represents the difference in cm, between thorax circ. and the that one of the waist. This last one determines the conformation of the person, in fact values around to: 10 = slim 6 = normal 0 = large. To the denominator of the fraction a literal index is present that indicates the height: for the man they are, - extra short - short - to regulate - long - extra long; for the woman instead, - short - to regulate - long. anthropometric chart: - man -- woman -- baby -- junior -
