database model tshirt sizes  ("NbForYou", )

  Re: database model tshirt sizes  (<>, )
  Re: database model tshirt sizes  ("NbForYou", )

another approach would be:

table product:
> productid int8 PK
> productname charvar(255)

table versions
> productid int8 FK
> versionid int8 PK
> size
> color
> ...
> quantity int4

an example would be then:

table product:
- productid: 123, productname: 'nice cotton t-shirt'
- productid: 442, productname: 'another cotton t-shirt'

table versions:
- productid: 123, versionid: 1, color: 'black', size: 'all', quantity: 11
- productid: 442, versionid: 2, color: 'yellow', size: 'l', quantity: 1
- productid: 442, versionid: 2, color: 'yellow', size: 's', quantity: 4
- productid: 442, versionid: 2, color: 'red', size: 'xl', quantity: 9
- productid: 442, versionid: 2, color: 'blue', size: 's', quantity: 0


that way you can have more than 1 quantity / color / size combination per
product and still have products that come in one size. so instead of only
using a 2nd table for cases where more than one size is available, you would
always use a 2nd table. this probably reduces your code complexity quite a
bit and only needs 1 JOIN.
