Small standard-size units will use unit weight. This change will also apply to units fulfilled through Multi-Channel Fulfillment and Small and Light.
For apparel, for all small standard-size and large standard-size units weighing more than 0.75 lb and all small oversize, medium oversize, and large oversize units, Amazon uses dimensional weight when it is greater than the unit weight. Small standard-size units use unit weight.
