English term or phrase: junior baby-doll
No entiendo ¿se refiere al modelo o talla de la camiseta? En ambos casos, se la ofrece en las tallas habituales (pequeño, mediano, grande y extra grande). Si busco las imagenes de google, no parecen camisones, de modo que sigo muy confundida.

corte / estilo / modelo baby doll
Explanation:
It's not a pajamas or a blouse. A "baby doll" t-shirt is a fitted t-shirt for women, not the boxy type that men wear.

"Junior" doesn't mean it's for children or teenagers. I think it just means that it is even more fitted and perhaps shorter. You can leave it out if your context allows.

You can see the slight difference here (the baby doll t-shirt is more fitted and hugs the waist):

Forget about the use of the word "size" in the English text. It is misleading. I think the writer meant to say that these types of t-shirts are fitted (even size Large is very tight). Replace "size" with "corte", "modelo" or "estilo".

Muchas gracias a todos. Entendí el concepto gracias a las explicaciones y los enlaces a los diagramas. Sin embargo, descarto por completo la utilización del término "baby-doll" porque sólo me trae la imagen de sensuales camisones transparente, que no tienen nada que ver con la prenda que tuve que describir.
Muchas gracias de nuevo. Por cierto, la traducción no era para Argentina, sino para cualquier persona que hable español.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  María Teresa Taylor Oliver: Exactly. Baby doll tees are fitted T-shirts for women, not pajamas. I agree with your interpretation of "junior". (And I just realized my comment reads almost exactly as your comment up there... Great minds think alike ;P).

  -> Thanks :-)

agree  Victoria Frazier
8 hrs
  -> gracias

neutral  Carmen Schultz: I found google references for junior in several Latin American nations, so I don't think they would be confused in Argentina.
21 hrs
  -> Yes but will it confuse the target audience in Argentina? "Junior" sounds like it's for kids.

El diseño “ baby –doll” para damas se encuentra exclusivamente en tamaños(tallas para adolescentes


Explanation:
el estilo "baby-doll"se ha consagrado en ingl.: "baby-doll," entonces lo dejaba tal cual-
en cuanto a lo de la talla/tamaño, hay que especificar que "junior" es para adolescentes o jóvenes

Como algunas mujeres entradas en edad pueden usar la talla junior, es mejor decir:

"El diseño “ baby –doll” para damas se encuentra exclusivamente en tallas "junior"

neutral  PB Trans: I agree with your second answer but not the first, as it is not strictly for teenagers.

  -> Right but major stores in the US do have a specific dept. for juniors and the target audience is the younger female crowd--obviously anyone with a svelte figure and young attitude can wear junior clothes; that is why I changed my answer to the 2nd version
