Important information about apparel product offerings

Amazon is standardizing clothing sizes to improve customer shopping experience through consistent and accurate data. Amazon has introduced new clothing size standards, which set sizes based on industry standards. So far, sales partners have given the size information for clothing in free text. In the future, this will be replaced by size attributes such as figure type and length type. Sales partners can then only select values ​​from a standardized list. Standardized size values ​​offer customers the advantage that they are shown uniform sizes for clothing products. This improves the customer experience when browsing and searching.

Amazon introduces new size attributes for clothing. The changeover takes place in several stages for different product types. We encourage all sales partners to familiarize themselves with the details listed below and on the Frequently Asked Questions page.

Attributes and requirements for clothing sizes

Once sales partners have selected values ​​for these two attributes below, certain values ​​will be filled in for additional attributes listed in the "New Clothing Size Attributes" table below.

  • Gender [required]: Select the gender for which the product is intended.
    • Examples: male, female, unisex
  • Age group description [required]: Select the age group the product is intended for.
