Tailored Junior was a mid-priced line of dresses for teenage girls and young women. Located in New York City, the business suffered a fire in 1939, the first reference found of the company. Throughout the 1950s Tailored Junior was known for their full-waisted dresses that had a floating effect due to the light cotton, and cotton, dacron, and orlon blend fabrics they used.
Tailored Junior dresses were marketed throughout the US, and were available at department stores. The last reference found to the line was 1959.
