I think it means sized for real women!!
just wider in the waist/chest/nech/arms.
yes it does hunnie and primalscream... how wide are you hmmmm
w in a shoe means wide. w in ladies clothes means "women sized" its cut more ample-ly (if you know what I mean). so a 14w fits more like a regular 16.
Wider, not longer.
It means WIDE LOAD!
