You've likely heard of plus-size clothes, but what about mid-size ones? The movement for retailers to center their size offerings around the actual average size of an American woman is trending on Instagram and TikTok—and for good reason. Where straight sizes are 0 to 14 and plus sizes are 14 to 26+, mid sizes are those that fall within the range in between: typically going up and down from sizes 10 and 12. If you're an "in-betweener," these 10 popular retailers deliver the goods when it comes to mid-size clothing.

1. Good American
