In a database of clothing items, I need to distinguish between those cut for 'girls' and those cut for 'women'. There are no offerings for 'toddler' or 'children', but this category would encompass them if there were.
What is a word for the categories infant,toddler,child,girl,woman?
I am using 'life stage' right now. But it invokes thoughts of insects or something; I don't like that.
Edit: Sorry, I was fishing a bit for words. The following are words I have tried and rejected.
Size describes small,medium and large. But a girl's size small is different from a woman's size small. So 'size' is not the term.
Age could be used, except it implies a numeric age.
Cut might be the term used in industry, I am not sure. I think cut refers to something like shorts vs boot-cut vs capri.
