When ordering Simplicity patterns online, there is a size choice of H5(6-14) or R5(14-22). It's obvious that h5 is the smaller of the two sizes, but what about h5 and r5 size 14? Sometimes other sizes are included in each group. This has driven me crazy for a few days. I have not been able to find an answer anywhere. Can anyone explain this to me?
Thanks in advance,
Gina

Are you just wondering if the size 14 is the same in both groups? If so, the answer is yes, they just sometimes overlap sizing. For example if you're a size 12 on top and a 14 in the hips and are making a dress, it will be easy for you to transition to the size, so by overlapping they cover all the sizes (hopefully) that you'll need. I'm not sure how they determine what sizes, probably just offering 5 sizes in one envie and 5 in the other? Hope this makes sense to you.

They just don't make it simple do they? MelissaB in WA in exactly right that it's just a range of sizes and the 14s are the same. I usually use sizes in both ranges so I can either buy two (don't think so) or just grade to the size that I need.
