Straight pins come in several lengths and thicknesses. Generally, the longer the pin, the thicker it is. Standard length for dressmaking is 1 1/6 [inch]; this type, known as seamstress or silk pins, is suitable for light- to medium-weight fabrics. The 1 [inch] length, sometimes called a pleating pin, is extra-fine, suiting it for use on delicate fabrics. Long pins (1 1/4 [inch]) are recommended for heavy materials; other lengths are available for special purposes, such as crafts.

En couture, on utilise des épingles de 1 1/6 [pouces]; les épingles de couturière ou épingles à soie conviennent aux tissus légers ou moyens. Celle qui mesurent 1 [pouce] et qu'on appelle quelquefois épingles à froncer sont extra-fines.
